A friend of mine asked if I had totally forgiven my wife for what she had done to me - leaving me because I had found my faith... my response:
"I did what I could to show my forgiveness. I gave her a hand written card - after I recieved my divorce papers. In it I wrote - I forgive you in advance.
Hours after the divorce I stopped by our home and gave her a candle - she said I was a moron. I told her how could I blame her for something that she didn't understand.
As I sat in the driveway - wondering if we would ever be back together again - I prayed and asked God for a sign. I flipped on my XM radio to hear the lyrics, 'No Sugar tonight in my coffee, no Sugar tonight in my tea. No Sugar to stand beside me, No Sugar to rock with me.' It seemed pretty clear what I was hearing - though I didn't want to listen.
'Sugar' was her CB handle - and it was how we met - our pinky fingers touched as she sat on my lap... too many people jammed into a single car. I then held that finger - thinking that I had found my one and only, forever and ever. That would be the first night that was 'us' - and we spent it together - and watched the sunrise in the morning. Not long after we would be married.
As I looked at the radio - wishing that I had NOT heard what I just did. It's message telling me that there would be no more 'Sugar' to stand beside me - the artist's name scrolled across the panel...
This is a true story.
