We’re leaving stories behind so today we’ll check the fourth of the winning love stories. Mónica Correa show us the importance of every moment in our lives in its “Coincidences do exist”: should you take the bus… or should you have a walk? Think about it! ;)

Coincidences do exist

Life sometimes shows you why there are coincidences. I’m reminded of it every morning when I get up and see my son, the sweetest and most loving person in my life, sleeping peacefully in his bed. A coincidence changed my life: from being a single girl with a love of adventure and travel, I became a stay-at-home mum. It all started one morning in the summer of 1999. I used to take the bus to work every morning, but that day I overslept and missed my normal bus. To make up for it and get to work on time, I caught a bus I’d never taken before. The bus was packed – it was during rush hour – but it gradually emptied as people got off at their stops. I happened to glance up towards the back of the bus and saw a guy with short blond hair, wearing a pair of large dark sunglasses, who happened to be looking my way. And he kept on staring. And so did I; everything about him was fascinating. But what intrigued me most of all was what his eyes must be like, hidden behind those dark classes. Eventually, his steady gaze made me take off my sunglasses, and he did the same.

I can truly say that it was love at first sight: those eyes, that look, that smile, the way he kept looking at me. In fact, he was so insistent that when we got nearer the bus door, he asked me to get off at his stop and, even though it wasn’t mine, I said yes! We introduced ourselves and started talking, asking questions and chatting endlessly, until he simply couldn’t help giving me a kiss. And that kiss is what made the difference. That’s why I decided I wanted to get to know him better, even though, unfortunately I was planning to move to another country to live in just two weeks. Those two weeks were the most amazing of my life; the things we shared made it really difficult for me to leave. But that’s exactly what I did. I returned after a year abroad and to my amazement, he was still waiting for me. We are head over heels in love; so much so, that we’ve brought into the world the most amazing thing that the love between two people can create: a child. A sweet and affectionate little boy that’s as bright as a button, probably because of everything we transmitted to him while he was still in my tummy: love and more love.
