When I think of the tests we’ve been through in our lives, I feel blessed to have had this companion at my side. Those tests might have broken many a relationship, but somehow they made ours stronger.
Perhaps that has something to do with us both being strangers to the path, who have fully imbibed those teachings that life itself is all a test. Perhaps had we been associated with the path purely for cultural reasons, we would have fallen apart at the first hurdle.
I am so grateful to have been united with this woman from a world away. I am so grateful that my own plans came to nought, for I could never have imagined what the One had in store for me. I am so undeserving of these blessings, so even more grateful still.
