When we meet someone and fall in love, although we may feel invincible and unstoppable, we never really know what the future holds. Love comes in mysterious ways and so we never truly know how it is going to end up as well. We all want love and we are all looking for love because it is what we all live for. So when we find it, we must make sure to keep it safe and secure. For this lady, there was a great twist in her love life that she could have never thought possible. Peggy Harris married whom she considered the love of her life. After a very brief moment of being together, something happened and her life was never going to be the same again. She had been waiting for 70 years to find an answer, she finally uncovers the real reason as to why he had disappeared out of her life.
For lovers, one of the most important things you need to do is trust each other. Trust should be the basis of any relationship. Peggy knew that this was an important aspect of a marriage. So, there was never an issue about questioning each other’s whereabouts when it comes to this couple’s relationship. You could say Peggy was a very trusting partner or that it was a different time altogether, that she was too in love with Billie because she never once questioned about where he wanders off. It was a little bit suspicious for her husband to just vanish into thin air especially after tying the knot six weeks earlier but she still felt that there was a perfect explanation, but it did feel weird.
Not Losing Hope
For a newly married couple, the first initial months after the wedding is always the best time. Most couples always stay together and can never keep away from each other. To be together as one is a dream for all couples that are truly in love. It was weird for Billie to be absent so poor Peggy would have to thicken her skin and also be up for dirty work in order to find out why Billie was gone without a trace. All her effort for all these years in trying to dig up how his husband disappeared went into vain. She really needed to know the exact reason for all this. But this lady refused to lose hope and continued her search despite no evidence ever popping up that could potentially help her find him.
Their love story proves how when two people are really in love, that even the unknown cannot stop them from being apart. Even though the signs all point towards a dead end, the true love that Peggy felt deep in her heart could not be diminished. She did not want to succumb to the word ‘No’ although she had heard it for so long now. Most of us would have given up and moved on by now but not Peggy, she was a true fighter who absolutely refused to put a stop on her search. She may have lost and gotten hurt plenty of times in her life but it was not going to stop Peggy from looking for Billie. It really is inspiring to see that although Peggy was completely in the dark about where her husband could be, she never gave up.
An Unconventional Meeting
Peggy Seale was just 18 years old when she worked as an electrical instrument mechanic at the Altus Oklahoma Air Force Base. She was born in Vernon, Texas during the 1920s. She had no clue that this would be the place where she would later meet her husband. This could be relatable to many of us as we never really know where we might meet our future spouses. Billie’s dad worked as a supervisor at Peggy’s workplace and that was where they first met. His dad felt like the two would make a great pair because Peggy was smart, beautiful and thoughtful. Since she was hard working and very witty, Billie’s dad felt like she would be the perfect girl for his lovely son.
Not An Ordinary Girl
One thing about Peggy that was really impressive was that she was not just another girl. While we perceive most girls as someone who belongs in the kitchen or doing household chores, Peggy was not one to stay at home and be non-productive. She was way too special to be sitting at home and not doing much. She was infact, well informed and learned enough to work with other people in the air force. Peggy was the only female working at Altus Oklahoma Air Force Base as a mechanic. During those times, it was not however that rare to see females in a typically male dominant workspace. Peggy always made sure that she stayed true to herself not letting any bumps in her life steer her away from herself.
The Perfect Couple
It was almost as if fate intervened because Billie’s father was working in the propeller department. This was where Peggy was working and pretty soon he was became acquainted with Peggy. Since she was a smart woman who was thoughtful and kind, he wanted to introduce his son to her. When they finally met, the two were immediately drawn towards each other. Billie was instantly attracted to who Peggy was, driven and firm. He also made sure his feeling were known. Other women were all engrossed in trying to capture wealthy men for husbands while Peggy was here, feeling content to work and solve complicated mechanical issues. They were the right puzzle piece to each other.
