One day while at work my boss asked me to meet a special client for him. After all, Cody works with many influential individuals within our state. I went home and prepared for this day as if I was going to me the president. The next morning, I got up and began to get dressed. I was determined that nothing was going to ruin this day! As I drove to work, something seemed very different to me. The trees seemed brighter, everything seemed peaceful and I was inspired to simply enjoy every moment. Having no clue what was about to happen and believing that I was meeting an artist for Cody, who apparently couldnâ€™t come to our office because (she or should I say he) was selling her art pieces. As, I drove to meet our new client I was filled with excitement. I thought â€œdonâ€™t forget to miss a step, ask her questions, get to know her and enjoy your time with her.â€
As I approached my meeting spot it began to rain. I thought â€œwell my hair is going to look a hot mess but I am going to enjoy my time with her.â€ While, I was walking this gentlemen walked over to me and said â€œare you here to meet Katie?â€ I said â€œyes!â€ Excitement filled my heart as I looked at this gentleman carrying a camera just like Adebo would. I complimented his camera, asked what he did for a living and he said â€œI am a photographer for National Inquirer. â€œ Then he said â€œI will come and say goodbye to you when you finish meeting with Katie.â€ I thought nothing of it and began to walk, as I got to the end of the bridge I could see him, Adebo, shaking and looking away from me. Whatâ€™s he doing here? OH, MY GOSH!!!! Donâ€™t tell me?!?! Is he?!?! Seeing him really nervous made me want to comfort him.
Then I walk over to him, he drops to one knee and he says â€œOn July 6th, I met you! When I went back to my hotel room I told my roommatesâ€¦Well this is something Iâ€™ve never told you but I told them â€¦Today I met my wife!â€ â€œWhat I want to know, Lynn, isâ€¦ will you be my wifeâ€¦will you marry me?!?!â€ All of a sudden I noticed that there were camera men everywhere and that they were taking videos of us. Filled with joy I knew that the only answer I wanted to give was â€œYes!â€ I cried in that moment and all the way back to my office. I said â€œI finally found someone who loves me. Me!â€ What had always seemed impossible for me had just happened. The lies that I told myself that I couldnâ€™t have what I wanted and that I was unlovable no longer seemed real. I knew that I had chosen the man that I wanted and he had chosen me.
