The people you were meant to find will always find you. Exhibit A:
A guy that my ex-husband worked with for 13 years had a "going away" happy hour with the company a few years ago. He was moving from St. Louis to Dallas. He met his second (and current) wife through working at the company. During the party he told us a story:
Back in 2001, he was still married to his first wife and living out on the East Coast. A couple of weeks after 9/11, he found himself in New York City and asked a cab driver to take them to ground zero. They got out and he took a bunch of pictures with a disposable camera. When he got back home, he developed the photos and threw the them in a drawer and forgot about it.
Over the next four years, he had some issues with alcoholism, separated from his wife, got divorced, moved to St. Louis, etc. Then he started working at the new company. It was that point when he decided to clean up his life. He thanked one of his coworkers who he said would stay at work with him late every day while he was battling his alcoholism because he knew he couldn't be at the store alone. He eventually met his new wife while working there, they got married, life improved.
One day, his wife called him out of the blue and said, “Where did you get this picture of me?" He didn't know what she was talking about. When he got home, she told him she'd found some pictures of his in a drawer. They were the pictures from ground zero that were on the disposable camera that he'd taken with him to New York City four years earlier. There was only one photograph in the series that had people in it. There were seven people in the photo, but only one of them had their face turned toward the camera. It was his now-wife, in New York City, at the same place, on the same day, at the same time. He'd just happened to snap a photo of her at the right moment. They didn't meet that day, but four years later, in a different city hundreds of miles away, are now married.
