When Love Comes
I started writing this as a comment to your recent post – ‘There’s No Such Place As Far Away’*, but I kept writing and realized that this was better off on my blog! When love comes? You’re already wondering what I’m talking about…
So here goes. As always you write so well and from the heart. Strangely I’ve never read any of Richard Bach‘s books except Jonathan Livingston Seagull (a personal favorite of my husband’s). But I’ve always preserved quotes from him. I had this one stuck on the soft board on my bedroom for a long time: You are never given a dream without being given the power to make it come true!
For years I dreamed of finding my soulmate (don’t we all?). In the process of this search I’ve fallen in love many times over, each time thinking, ‘Ah, I’ve found the ONE’ (turned out there was more than one!!!). It was finally at age 41 that I met my soul mate – my husband. ‘Oh Lord,’ I can hear you say, ‘do I have to wait so long?’. Your journey needn’t be as mine and hopefully if you can learn something from my journey, it will make it all the more worthwhile.
Some questions you might ask –
Did I make many mistakes in this journey? YES.
Did I get in to some weird relationships? YES (although they seemed alright at the time).
Do I have regrets about the loving, the losing and the pain? NO.
