“Grace! Hey, thank God I ran into you. I heard about
what happened, are you okay?”
just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse.
I mean it was nice of him to care but really, why him?
“Um hey, Jake.”
“I know I’m not the person you really want to
see right now but please if there’s anything I can
“No, Jake, I—I’m fine, really.”
I lied. I wasn’t fine epically after seeing him.
He smiled and leaned in to hug me I just went along.
“I know you probably hate me but I don’t care.
I’m here for you, Grace, always. You never left my
mind since that day in Chicago when I was out in the rain
all alone. That was the worst day of my entire life.”
“You did that to yourself.” I turned around
and started towards the grocery store.
“I know I did, but I’ve changed.” I turned
“I love you just like I told you I would always love
you. You were the best thing that ever happened to me”
How did our conversation turn into this? Not this, not now.
I just lost my husband for heaven’s sake. Why did
he have to come along? As if he was any consolation.
“Jake what are you doing?” I asked as if I didn't
“I want another chance,”
at this moment I knew what any sensible, careless person
would do; laugh in his face but despite what he did to me
or how silly he sounded right now he deserved my attention.
So I gave it to him.
“Do you think you could do that? Do you think you
could find it in you to forgive me? I know what you’re
thinking but as soon as you left me I went to church. I
got saved and I never wanted to leave. I don’t know
why I didn't do it sooner; so much weight has been lifted
from my shoulders.” I smiled.
“That’s great and I'm happy for you. But I just
lost someone very special to me and I'm not ready to get
back out there yet. Not any time soon.”

Once again I walked toward the store.
“Please! Please, Grace, please!” he yelled.
When I turned around I could’ve have sworn I saw a
tear wading in his eye but he dared not to let it fall.
“Just one more chance, I swear if I screw up this
time I'll be out of your life forever, Please.”
“I can’t stand to be hurt again.”
“I won’t hurt you! I promise I'll never leave
you or lie to you ever again if you just please give it
one more try.”
The tear fell. He quickly wiped it away. But it didn't matter
because right then I had plenty to match; he had me crying
“C’mon the man is begging just give him a chance
or you might miss out on something great,” a passing-by
customer said to me.
“Okay,” I told him and his face lit up as well
He picked me up and swung me around holding me so close
I could barely breathe.
“I love you” he set me down and kissed me and
it was then that I realized I never really stopped loving
my first love.

“Jamie, Sarah, time for dinner come sit down.”
I love dinner time it’s so old fashioned but I who
doesn’t love the chance to talk to your family. I
loved my family, I loved Jake and I loved my baby girls.
They were three and a half now and extremely smart. They
get that from Jake he has always been a smart guy.
“Ok who wants broccoli!” he said.
They all said “eww” of course.
They hated it but what kid didn't.
That night Jake and I lay in bed talking. We talked about
everything from our past together to our past individually
that we hadn’t talked about before. You would think
after all the time we had been together we would have talked
about everything already, but it would take longer than
a lifetime to explain all the feelings and emotions and
everything else we ever felt. Then we got on a painful subject
I was praying with all my might that we would stay away
from; death. I hated the subject but I loved the fact that
if it was ever on my mind I could talk to Jake about it
and me the same for him. We talked about when he had lost
his best friend in the 8th grade. He had never told me about
it because it was just too painful but he finally felt the
need to tell me. His best friend want the only person Jake
had lost, his mom and sister had died in a car wreck two
years ago but he is still unable to talk about it. it was
really hard for all of us especially Jake he is still getting
over it. We never talked about Alex, and Jake knew better
than to bring him up just like I knew not to talk about
his mother or sister. I missed him a lot. I still can't
believe he's gone. But I'm happy with Jake and I think Alex
would be happy for me too. When Alex died I thought my life
was over but that’s what I thought when I first left
Jake too. It seems, though, that every time something good
in my life falls apart it’s so something better can
fall together. God really does work in mysterious ways.
