Don’t Stop Believing

Marilyn Seuffert Found Her Love Again

Eleven years ago, I fell in love with the most beautiful gentleman I had ever met. I was 32, and he was 47. I was elated when I met him.

Two weeks into our wonderful love affair, we rode our bikes to my place. He turned to look for me and fell off his bike. He lost consciousness and sustained a subdural hematoma. I lost him in that moment. I tried to get him back for two years, but unfortunately his injury split us apart.

I never again met anyone whom I loved as much as him. On the ten-year anniversary of the accident, he contacted me, and we met up. I was so happy to see that he had made a great recovery.

Marilyn Seuffert and her Love

I was still in love with him. We got back together; we live together; and now we are engaged. My message is to have faith because miracles happen. Things may take time. Don’t stop believing!
