(MLS: My Love Story – Part 1!)
It was back in October 2007 that I met Jeff. I remember the moment, but he does not. (So much for love at first sight, right?) I had been attending a Bible Study Group for singles for a couple of years at that point and it was his first night attending. I’m not sure how he knew about the group (I’ll have to ask him – now I’m curious), but he visited that night to check it out.
I only remember meeting him that night because I was in charge of greeting people and there were 2 new guys. One was Jeff and one was Jim. One was an electrical engineer. One was a mechnical engineer. Both were tall. Both had dark hair. But I couldn’t remember who was who! So when I was introducing them to people to get them connected, I tried to hide that I couldn’t tell them apart. Was this Jim the electrical engineer? Or was it Jeff the mechnical engineer? Or was it Jim who did the mechnical stuff? Jeff? Jim? Uh oh.
Eventually, I did get it figured out who was who. Turns out Jeff was the electrical engineer. And quite the nice guy. (Jim is a nice guy too, but this story is about Jeff and I, not Jim and I. Because Jim and I have no story together. Well, we did attend the same Bible Study group once.)
So that’s why I remember meeting Jeff that night, but he doesn’t remember me. He met lots of new people that night while I only remember meeting two. And I only remember those two because I had struggle with their names!
But sometimes that’s how love stories start!
- Just because you can’t remember his name a few minutes later doesn’t mean you won’t end up with his last name some day. Doesn’t mean you will, but it doesn’t mean you won’t.
