The Red Shoes

The full moon Shone brightly as it illuminated the outdoor Gathering of her classmates from 40 years ago.

 Her anticipation of the evening to come held many surprises.  Prior to this moment she thought about nothing but the excitement of seeing old friends and classmates; reconnecting and just enjoying herself.

The thought of possibly meeting someone was a distant feeling but surfaced now and then.

She busied herself with the planning of the event not thinking of what she would wear until… A picture of red shoes appeared out of nowhere on her phone.  “My Cinderella shoes,” she whispered to herself. She knew these were HER glass slippers.

As she slid her smooth manicured foot into the red velvet booty, she felt magical… Her intuition led her to believe she would connect with someone this evening. When in reality, she had already made the connection… 40 years ago, 10 years ago, and a week ago . The seeds had been planted.  She just didn’t know it.

As she walked onto the moonlit patio, her eyes roamed. There he was, the man she had been casually speaking with the week prior. Their eyes met briefly. She felt drawn to him. But kept her distance. She made casual conversation as she mingled around… but the red shoes kept moving her in his direction. The overwhelming desire to just talk and talk with him was intense… but the jagged edges of betrayal left a very deep scar. She was afraid. God  was answering her prayer, and pointing her in the right direction, but her fears took over. She left that evening hugging him goodbye and wishing him well. 

She went back to her room, took off the red shoes and knelt down and prayed. She prayed for guidance. She prayed for God to take away her fears because if he was the one she didn’t want to lose him.   

…And she didn’t 

Yes, this is me. This all began back in October of this year. I’m writing this because I have been blogging for over five years, when my past relationship ended. The scars that it left were very deep. I always wondered and prayed if I would ever meet someone that I could share my life with… not settle for…but with a man I  was so in sync with and connected to,  that we just fit.  

I waited for over five years for God to answer my prayer. I always had faith that he had that someone special for me and he would appear when I least expected it. I needed that time to grow and find myself; to become confident in the woman I am today so that I could receive the person that God had for me. I’m so thankful that I waited and that I continued to have faith and just let God lead us to each other.  And now… I couldn’t be happier. I’m so thankful and so blessed to have this wonderful man in my life.  

It does happen, you just have to believe and have faithūüėä

Thank you Lord for giving me my grown-up Christmas wish ūüėČ ūüėČ
Merry Christmas to all of you. Don’t ever give up believing ūüôā

A Love So True

It is officially November, Halloween has come and gone, my uncarved pumpkins remain outside my door to remind me that it is Fall, and the Christmas movies have begun to show up on the various channels that engulf our T.V’s. ¬†And yes… ¬†I am still single. ¬†I am not saying that as if it is a bad thing. ¬†I thoroughly enjoy my life and am very happy. ¬†But there is still the idea of a man; someone to share my already happy life with:)

So many people have asked me, “What are you looking for?” ¬†“What do you want?”

I always thought I knew exactly what I wanted in a relationship, but after talking with a long-lost friend from college, I have reassessed my wants.¬†¬†I don’t like using the word “wants” ¬† It’s more like a feeling. ¬†It is the way I perceive love. ¬†Some may say I am a hopeless romantic, (I am) ¬†and my take on love is only in fairy tales. ¬†But, I do not agree.

My take on a TRUE LOVE:

I want love, not the¬†comfortable, safe kind. ¬†I want¬†extraordinary, passionate, everything is in sync love. ¬†Where their touch¬†electrifies¬†my¬†soul. When he touches my hand, my whole body quivers. Where the¬†simplest¬†of gestures bring a smile to¬†my face. ¬†When what I want most in the world, (and this is it,) adds to my happiness. ¬†Love isn’t a fairy¬†tale if¬†it’s TRUE. ¬†

So, I will keep praying,and ¬†keep the faith, that God has someone like this for me. ¬†I know he is out there. ¬†He just hasn’t found me yet:)

My words of wisdom for today: ¬†Hold out for what you truly want in life. ¬†Don’t settle. ¬†Love yourself first, so you can give that true love to someone else:)

Be happy in life!!

Keep hiking to the top!
