Love and romance. Two inseparable subjects. The other week hubby told me that his second brother would move to his girlfriend's place here in Sodankylä soon. He dares taking that step since he can't stand being apart from her any longer (he's currently living in Pori, about 12 hours away by car from here).
When he was coping with a break up last summer, he told me that he didn't believe that he would ever be lucky in love. He had gone through plenty of break-ups already and the last one was painful since the woman didn't even explain to him what had happened. She had just simply stopped accepting his calls or replying his SMS. Cruel, isn't it?
Anyway, his current girlfriend has actually been his best friend for over 20 years, but through some twists of life, they had never really been a couple. That's one reason why I was SO happy when they got together. It was clear to me that they got the chemistry already. After all, they have been BEST friends! I wish him ALL THE BEST in this current relationship. I wish him many many more happy years to come. One challenging thing would be finding a job in this little village, but when God opens doors, nobody can close them, right? I hope he'll find one sooner, not later.
I love love stories, don't you? It's just funny sometimes how life brings two people together. I also know one person who used to "hate" a guy in High School actually ended up marrying him. In that particular case, it's true what they say, I guess, "There's a fine line between love and hate."
