Her Happy Ending
My friend, who I met in the military, inadvertently changed my life one night when she happened to invite me to dinner at a restaurant with a group of her friends. There, a cute guy sat next to me who quickly became my friend, who I now call “Husband.” My friend just loves that we met through her, and she proudly mentions it whenever we’re together. In fact, on the matted picture that everyone signed at our rehearsal dinner, she jokingly wrote: “You can thank me for the rest of your lives. :)” Tomorrow, we leave for a trip to attend her wedding, and I’m so excited. We’ll get to see a lot of friends, and we’ll even get to spend time with some family members that live nearby. My friend and her soon-to-be-husband have been dating for years (even longer than I’ve known Husband). They also met in the military, and they spent most of their relationship long distance. Now they finally live in the same area, and they’re starting a new life together after both leaving the military. I’m thrilled to be a part of her special day. I just love happy endings.
