I Believe in Love

4 Nov

The Facebook project…30 days of thanks.  I missed day one and on day two proclaimed thanks for the safe harbor that is my home.  Pondering other great blessings in preparation, one held its place in my head a bit longer.  That blessing…I still believe in love.

An emotional one I am, the thought made me cry.  Swimming in an abyss of failure, one would think I should raise the proverbial white flag.  While cynicism has made its nasty way inside for other reasons, it has yet to corrupt this basic yearning…a God given desire for an extraordinary love.

I have felt it.  I have known it.  I have been there, but it was fleeting.  I lament over that one…the one that got away.  Particularly my fault in the end…distrust in myself to stay.  Other failures…marked by liars and cheats, bad timing, and indifference.  Those who proclaimed to be someone other than their truth and those who I could not give my heart.  Oh the pain and the heartache that ensued.

In spite of that pain…the dysfunction, turmoil, and disappointments, I have never been more ready.  With an open heart I embrace the potential and my thankfulness that still I believe.

And I do…I believe in love, and I believe in it for me.

    Wait for it, the real thing, the one. I re-married 3 years ago, I had been single for 24 years since my first 6 year marriage failed. My only regret is that I did not wait for it the first time. But I would not trade my 2 amazing children to do it differently, and i would do all of it all over again for the love that I know now. So wait, it is so worth it.

    You of all people are so deserving and I can’t wait for the day that Mr. Right comes into your life. I pray for that all the time, hoping that you one day are as blessed as I. Love you!!
