Love Stories of Hawaii

Second Chance Love

The Secret Dream
Dedicated to Michael Coy

Submitted by Mary

It has taken all of my 44 years to find my soul mate, best friend, and lover, Michael. As fate would have it, we traveled similar parallel lives in two separate states. His life was based in Indiana while my life was in Ohio. One day three years prior to our meeting, he moved to Ohio. Our eyes met across a crowded room at a party with mutual friends, but fate was not ready for us to be a couple just yet. It wasn't until about eight months later that we met at a singles dance where we recalled seeing each other at the party many months previous. He even recalled the bathing suit I was wearing at the pool party!

Before the year ended, after just eight months, we were married on November 1, 2003. We have four children between us, three of which are college age. Since we really never had a honeymoon, getting married at a quiet family ceremony on the weekend and returning to work the following Monday, I would love to present my husband with a trip to Hawaii for Valentine's Day. Why Hawaii you ask, well, because it is a fond memory for my husband.

He oftentimes talks about the later part of the 1970's when he was stationed at Tripler Army Medical Hospital on Oahu, Hawaii where he began his nursing career of 25 years. He loved the island, the warmth of the people and their culture, and dreams of what it would be like to return.

The story of our meeting is fate driven. The story of our lives joined together is a gift we have chosen to give each other. A trip to Hawaii would be a gift from my heart to his; a memory of the past melded into the present and forever into the future.
