Rumours, Discontent and the Storm – How I Met My Wife

Submitted into: Miracles of Love Category,

On: 2016-08-10 04:15:10

I was working as a chiropractor in a practice in the northern Australian State of Queensland. I was told that there was a new chiropractor coming to join our team and her name was Rosemary. I remembered Rosemary from University where we attended some of the same classes. In the seven years I attended the University we spoke for a total of approximately thirty seconds as we moved in different circles and had very different values.

When Rosemary came to our practice I was very busy with my own clients and did not make any time to help her feel welcome or find her way in the practice. There was also some discontent among the other chiropractors who felt the practice was not yet ready to support an additional practitioner. For this reason, Rosemary soon started looking for a new position.

A short time later our team attended a large chiropractic conference attended by chiropractors and staff from hundreds of practices around Australia. People were talking to people and at some point one of our team members was told that Rosie had accepted a position at a different practice in our town of Mackay (a rumour that was not true).

The owner of our practice was justifiably angered by this apparent news about Rosemary. First thing Monday morning she was called in to the owner’s office and he expressed his feelings about the news.

I happened to be walking past the office as Rosemary opened the door to leave. She was visibly upset and as I didn’t know what to say, I gave her a hug. I asked her if she was OK and she said she needed to go for a walk.

An hour or two later my phone rang and it was Rosie. She had gone to sit in a local park about 10 minutes’ walk from the practice. It was the middle of summer in Mackay – the wet season. A tropical storm had come in and it was raining as in a way that you can only know if you have been in a tropical storm. She asked if I could come and pick her up.

I got in my car and, just like a Knight in shining armour, drove to the park and found her sheltering under a tree. We drove to a local café and talked for the first time. We talked for a long time and found that we shared many of the same values and goals. We found that we had each totally misjudged the other and were surprised to learn what the other person was really like.

That conversation was the spark that ignited our relationship and soon after we were married and now have two beautiful boys and a practice of our own.

The miracle of the story is that without the rumours, discontent and the storm, I don’t know If we would ever have had the chance to get to know each other.
