Compliments of danoah

My mum was born and raised in Perth, my dad here in Sydney. They grew up in the complete opposite ends of Australia.
During the late 70's my dad was in his twenties and decided to do a bit of traveling. He journeyed across the Nullarbor to Perth, finding work there for a little while. This is when of course he met my mum. But get this - they met in a Gay bar after midnight, and my mum was with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend!

As the story goes he caught her by herself for a moment at this bar, and he used a line on her. He apparently took her hand, most likely filled with a bit of liquid courage, and told her that he could see her future in her palm and that she would be with him! To cut a long story short my mum (much to my shock) left with him that night leaving behind the man she arrived with. Two weeks later my dad proposed and the rest is history. They moved to Sydney, married, and had my older brother, myself and my two little brothers.

Now when I think about it, my dad could have traveled to Queensland or Victoria, but he went to Perth. And what are the odds of a man and woman meeting in a gay bar and getting married? My mum wasn't even single, and yet my parents managed to get together. There were so many odds stacked against my parents meeting and forming a relationship, but it happened, and because of all the split second decisions they had each made leading up to that point I am now here.

Have you ever thought about what a miracle it is that you exist? I recently watched a documentary on conception. Wow. The things that spermatozoa have to go through in order to reach the egg is just phenomenal. Out of the millions that initiate the journey with so many many odds stacked against them and different obstacles there is just one that makes it. And that is the one that creates you. It could have been any one of them and you wouldn't have come into existence, someone else would now be standing in your place. But that is not the case. And here you are.

So many things came into play well before you were here in order for you to enter the world. I find this so fascinating. We really are very lucky to be here, and are extremely special. Just think about it...
