Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and make you beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. 

The things that seem insignificant to most people become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so vivid, it’s like being young again. Colors seem bright and brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating, because you know they are important to this person who is special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a blue sky, gentle wind, or a storm cloud on the horizon. In opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.

    Also, your post about that a*hole customer yesterday left me slack-jawed and wanting to punch something. Sometimes I hate people, ya know?!

  2. Love that quote never heard it before!!

  3. I saw a video yesterday that reminded me of you! It was two little boys, the Hollis boys, whose house was vandalized (by losers) because they have two sisters with disabilities, and they made a video rebuttal. If you haven't seen it - google it! Have a great weekend! Xo
