[Journal] Day 8; Boonsboro, MD – Everett, PA

“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” – Proverbs 18:22

It was the year of 2008.

I was taking a summer in S.Korea. It was a great chance for me to visit my family and take summer class in my mother nation.

God sometimes acts upon us humorously when it comes to LOVE.

We never had a same class. The only connection we had was our mutual friend who happened to know both of us.

Then, this one text message, one wrong text message sent to wrong person, changed the whole thing.

One day she send me the text regarding the party of her friend during the weekends. I was half excited, half doubtful. Is this person really inviting me to this party? THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

So I responded whether she really meant me to come, or she sent it to the wrong person. I received the response 3 minutes later.

“Oops, sorry! Wrong Je Won.”

Apparently there was another guy named as same. Since then this girl’s name was stuck in my head and never came off.

‘Haeley Park’

Long story short, I heard she was back in S.Korea and we met each other again while I was serving in ROKAF (Republic of Korea Air Force) for military duty in 2011.

Then, this beautiful girl and I got married in August, 2012.

Everyday I ride, whenever I look up the sky, she is always smiling at me. Then I smile back and continue pedaling.

As I went through Boonsboro to Everett, I realized how blessing it is to have a reason to be a better person each moment.

I believe all I4K members have a same thought.

All the families, friends, relatives, and supporters bring as the energy to continue this journey.

I once again thank you for everything you have done to us.

Coming this August is 1st Anniversary.

Haeley “Haedeun” Park, I’m the luckiest guy on earth to be with you, and I love you so much. See you in San Francisco!
