Today is our first Love Story- this one touched my heart. Thanks for sharing my friend, pour a cup of coffee and read this Love Story.
2007- We were so young!
I liked him - he was tall and funny - but I was sure the world would stop spinning and birds would sing as soon as I met "the one" so I didn't know if I was convinced.
I was so naive.
The thing was: I couldn't stop thinking about him. He was funny and interesting and after a few dates I knew he was pretty special. I realized I didn't want him NOT to be in my life.
I think back to that girl I was back then. Scattered, emotionally damaged, wandering but on a holding pattern, and, honestly, a bit of a tool.
The Guy had a lot to do with me calming down and getting more focused. He helped me relax and be more comfortable with who I am, so I'm not so worried about being silly. I am a better person now because he has been in my life and I like to think he's better too.
That's what the me of 7 years ago didn't get. Love isn't about earth shaking and harps playing - it's about two people who make each other better versions of themselves. It's about little things every day that show love and appreciation.
|2014 - it's our year|
I'm glad that girl smartened up. I'm glad she took a chance.
I'm reaping the benefits.
And there are still a lot more to come.
Bronwyn MayB writes at I, MayB. She has this to say for herself.
I am woman, wife, dog mom, crisis worker, and friend. Though I am much more comfortable in my own skin now that I'm past 30 (and closing in quickly on 40!) I still am figuring out who I want to be when I grow up.
Mostly, I do dumb things and then I tell you about them. My life is an open book (much to the chagrin of my husband!) I am who I am and I'm not shy to share it with anyone who asks and most people who don't.
I've been married for over 4 years to a wonderful man I call "The Guy" in the online world for his own protection. It's a bit like changing the names of the innocent.
|This is love.|
