Sometimes you find the right things in the wrong places.

So I feel like I need to share this with someone :)
Here is my story of the past few months.
About 5 months ago, I got a phone call from a friend saying someone at our school had taken their life earlier in the day, my friend was not sure who though, so I go to see if anyone had posted anything on facebook. As I open my phone, I see the persons name all over my news feed, it turns out the person was a very good friend of mine, who I had been close with since middle school. Nothing was the same after that, it had changed my life, Owen was one of the most confident and life loving people I knew, and he had taken his own life, I barely ate or slept for 2 months. Soon after this news, my mom was rediagnosed with a brain tumor, and was given 6 months to live. I watched my mother slowly lose control of one side of her body and decline until her death on June 10th all while mourning the loss of my friend, it had gotten to the point where I didn't leave the house other than to work my horses or go to school or work. A few weeks before my mother passed, a friend of mine at my barn locked her keys out of her car, so her brother and his best friend had to come and bring her keys. Me and another friend of mine were there and my friend got one of the guys numbers. I on the other hand had so much on my plate the last thing I was looking for was a boyfriend, so even after my friend persisted, I refused to go on a date with them. But a little more than a week before my mom passed, my friend (Jess) was with Brian, one of the guys who came with the keys, Jess is now in a relationship with Brian's best friend mike, who left for marine boot camp, so Jess was spending time with Brian. It was obvious Brian was into me, but I didnt want a relationship. After a few days with the two of them, Brian really started to grow on me, and after a few dates I really stated to fall for him. He has helped me so much within the past few months, he is the only thing that can really take my mind off of how much pain I was in, he is so perfect, ad oddly enough he is exactly my type, I couldn't be more happy. I don't know what I would do without him right now, he gives me something to live for, after losing so much, he makes me feel a little more whole again. Do any of you have any crazy love stories?

I'm so happy for your happiness! I hope things have gotten a little better after all of the pain you've had to go through- I'm really sorry about the loss of your friend and your mom. Not sure if this is a crazy love story, but my husband and I knew the night we met that it was true love at first sight. My cousin was one of his regulars at the bar he worked at, and he introduced us when I happened to be in town on vacation (this was about nine years ago). We were both seeing other people at the time, so nothing came of the first meeting, but we would ask about each other from time to time. A year and a half later I came back for vacation again, and he and I spent the entire week together. About 8 months after that, we decided we were meant to be together and were making the relationship official. I moved back to DC from Florida a few months after that, and we've been together since- January 16th will be our second wedding anniversary! Best of luck to you and Brian!!! :)
