A Girl Walks into a Bar.... Part 2

So let me back up a little bit...ya, know before the whole part where we meet back up and he grabs me and tells me he missed me (ha, it's so true and I LOVE it). Altogether we were a part from December to the beginning of March. It was such a short time that seemed to drag on forever. We never did the break up where we talked and ran into each other out in public. Louisville is a pretty big place and I knew him well enough to know where he would or wouldn't go. I tried to stay away from those places because I didn't want to be that girl. I hate that girl. The needy, stalkerish, completely dependent girl that guys can't stand and actually feel sorry for. Um, no thank you. But trust me when I say I felt all those things.
I really never thought I would see him or hear from him again so imagine my shock when I get an email one day out of the blue. It was a beautiful day outside and I was going to be stuck in front of a computer typing up a portfolio for work. Around 11 that morning I decided to drive to the park and go for run and I happen to post it on my facebook... turns out that as soon as he saw my post he put on his shoes and ran to the park he *thought* I would be at... turns out I was at the one right next to it. So instead, he drives to my apartment and emails me from the parking lot. My heart literally fell out when I saw it. It basically said he was sorry for how things ended and he wanted to apologize. It was confusing really... an email out of the blue to say sorry... that was fine. He was always a super nice guy that would never intentionally hurt me. It would only make sense he would feel the need to apologize but I couldn't help thinking there was more to it. I waited a couple of days to email him back, making sure all my friends proof-read my response to a-ok it. :) Anything that happened after that would be in his court.
About two weeks later it was St. Patricks day and I went out for my friend Amanda's birthday. We went to Bardstown Rd (why, of course!) and hung out at one bar then decided to go to another. When we got to the second bar, we walked around and I immediately made eye contact with one of his friends... my heart skipped because that meant he was there! I smiled and kept walking and about a minute later I feel a tug at my hand. I turned and there he was smiling at me. I had no idea what to say and how to act. I walked up to him and congratulated UofL on their win and then waited. He hugged me and told me that he missed me and he had made the biggest mistake of his life... cue the music and love song people!!
From that point on we have been together and I can honestly say that even though that was a truly difficult time, I wouldn't change it because of where it brought us. I grew closer to the Lord and I learned to rely on Him for everything and in turn He made our relationship stronger and more focused on Him.
Now I certainly can't say that every break-up might have as happy of an ending as mine did. There are people you are meant to be with and ones you aren't. Never once during our breakup did I question God. No, I didn't understand it but my constant prayer was that He show me what He wanted of me and I just tried to listen.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
