Well hello lovelies. Happy Wednesday. We’ve made it to hump day. I hate that saying. I don’t know why it just sounds vulgar lol. That aside this work week is almost finished. Woohoo. A lot of people will be fixed in front of the television this weekend for The Super Bowl. I know my sports loving hubby will be. He’s already ordered up what he would like to eat for the day lol. I truly don’t mind. In fact, I’m one of those strange wives that loves football as much as he does. I have to admit that one of the things that attracted me to him was his over excitement of sports. I get tickled at how he jumps up and down and gets all loud when the games are on. Actually that is what my blog is about tonight. Do you remember the first time that you felt an attraction towards your significant other? Did he/she just sweep you off of your feet? Was it their smile or their laugh. Was it their looks or their demeanor? I’m going to tell you a little story about us because I think it’s just precious and in honor of our “first date anniversary” which was 6 years ago yesterday.
Yes, my sweet husband and I have only been married for 5 years and together for 6. I am unfortunately in the category of 3rd marriage. Now don’t get me wrong I am so thankful of each step and phase of my life. I truly feel that things happen for a reason and I know that God certainly saved the best for last for me. I was married to my son’s dad for 15 years. He was and is a great father but we were young and silly and just couldn’t make that marriage work. We are happier apart and we are certainly better parents away from each other. He is remarried and has another son. I love his son and his wife which I know sounds so strange. We co-parent very well. Then there was the next phase. I was unfortunately married for a very short period of time to a very horrible man. One who caused me so much anxiety and fear. To me he was the devil and I regret it every single day. Please don’t ever think that if you are in a bad situation that you have to stay. You DO NOT. The ptsd is real and it is not worth it. In the end it was all paving the way for me to be happy.
I love the lyrics “God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you”. I think for many of us it is such true words. Now I didn’t tell you the above information to gain sympathy. Don’t feel sorry for me. I made my own bed. I did tell you about it because I want you to see two things. One, there is always a reason for your chapter. But, if it takes your peace it’s not your path. Repeat it a zillion times. And two; there IS someone out there that would be truly honored to spend the rest of their life with you. Love is real. True love exists and when you find it just sit back and watch. It will knock you flat in your tail. It’s the best feeling in the world and I can not explain the peace. If you are lucky enough to have already found it congratulations! Isn’t it amazing. Okay, okay enough with that. Back to the topic. I met my husband when I worked in a dental practice. I worked in the dental field for 23 years. I still do part time. Remember I told you a few blogs ago that my sweet feller is your local delivery guy? Well he delivered to the practice where I worked. He was so sweet and kind and I will never forget when he walked in to the office on a slow Friday and asked for my phone number. I won’t say I wasn’t very scared. If you’ve been burned it’s hard to open back up. Oh how I am so glad I did. Even though all I could worry about was dropping my dinner in my lap, after several hours of phone conversations and dinner we literally never spent another day apart. We had so much in common that it was almost scary. I can honestly say that no one, absolutely no one, ever gave me peace when I was around them. The evenings that we spent together were completely stress free and I was full of peace. To this day, 6 years later, I still get butterflies when he walks into my office to deliver a package. I still watch him leave and feel that peace.
Do you remember the first glance at the person that you love? Did you have butterflies and feel all giddy? If he/she were truly the love of your life then you never really lost that feeling. I want to challenge you to think about those first few days or weeks of your amazing relationship. Maybe relive your first date. Try to go back to the same place that you went. Bring back a little romance. Talk to your loved one about it. Rekindle. Relive your engagement. Isn’t he/she worth it? Aren’t you worth it? For those who haven’t gotten there or found your forever happy, don’t give up. That person is out there. I pray they walk right in to your life and soon. Have a wonderful night. Happy dreams. ❤️Always
