September 15, 2001, is a date I will never forget. It was a Saturday morning and I started a game of canasta on-line as I did every weekend morning. The player sitting directly after me kept taking the pile so I started teasing him. I asked some general questions such as where he was from, how old he was, and if he was married. His response to the marriage question was, "Why are you iterested?" And the rest is history! We talked on the internet that Saturday and Sunday and ended up talking on the telephone that week. I ran up three phone cards in a week's time so I got a cell phone with free long distance to keep the conversations going. We talked until 2:00 or 3:00 every morning. I was so tired, yet so excited at the same time. I just could not tear myself away from him. I was hanging on every word he said. He made me laugh, he made my cry, and he made me fall in love with him. I was going through the most difficult time in my life when I met him. I was not happy with my marriage and had not been for many years. I talked to several people about trying to get out, but I could never find the courage to do so. That is where my angel stepped in. He told me his experiences with his divorce, he let me cry on his shoulder, and stayed up with me until I was able to go to sleep. He is my angel and I thank God that I found him because he has changed my life forever. We now talk on the phone several times a day, e-mail each other, and send letters and cards through the mail. Hopefully we will meet soon, but I have a feeling once we meet in person one of us will not be going back home.
