Kasi and Mark July 15, 2011

Today Kasi Patterson and Mark Payne are getting married. When I introduced them a few years ago it wasn’t a fix up, it was just me and Kasi going out and we ran into Mark, or maybe we were supposed to be meeting him and Jan. I remember saying Kasi, this is my friend Mark and Mark said hi, can I buy you a drink and said a few more things that I will leave out of here. I remember when Mark bought Kasi Victoria’s secret for Christmas and she was a little freaked out about his gift but thoroughly enjoyed the new lingerie. Shortly thereafter I remember Kasi giving me a list of all the reasons that she couldn’t be with Mark because he just wasn’t her type. I remember me and her brother telling her that you can’t fight love. Love doesn’t care about all that stuff and I remember when she finally gave in and quit fighting what she felt and when she did, things were different, they became a couple. The two of you are so lucky to have found each other. I pray that God continues to bless the two of you. I love you both very much and feel blessed to have you in my life.

All I Want Is You

About 9 years ago I fell in love with a man who I thought I would spend the rest of my life with. The song by U2 - All I want is you was the song this man so long ago said reminded him of me, he said all he could think about was me when he heard this song. I haven't thought about him in a very long time. Saturday I went to Nashville with 4 girls and when they picked me up there was someone else with them. A man I had met Wednesday night, he was a friend of one of the girls. Our very own personal bodyguard was driving us. I had no idea he would be going to Nashville with us. U2 was playing in Nashville Saturday night. We didn't see them in concert but knowing they were there flooded my memory with my past. There may have been some chemistry between me and the bodyguard, or maybe it was just the alcohol. Today the bodyguard shared a link to the song that touched my heart so long ago. I never spoke of U2 to anyone. Maybe this song was my six degrees of separation to finding a new friend?
