Love is when you look into someone's eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside their soul and you both know it....Unknown.
I've had one those eye opening and growing weekends, the ones that are difficult to deal with in the moment but ultimately help you grow even beyond what you thought your potential was.
I remember hearing that we are being buffed and refined like a piece of pottery until we become our best selves. I used to say don't buff or refine me, I am who I am... like me this way or don't like me at all. Now I say bring it on, I want to be the best me; I know the process is hard, I know I'll cry but I will grow even more than I thought possible.
I realized how much I've limited myself in my life, always saying I can't, I won't, it's impossible. I no longer feel that; as soon as I say I can't, I flip it around and I do it. I can do it, we all can; we just have to have the desire. I have the desire!
Last night I talked to my David, have I told you guys how much I love him. Of course I have:) I'm so grateful and blessed that he came into my life when he did. When I thank him for being there for me, for bringing me full circle to myself. He refuses to take credit; he tells me it was all my hard work and that he's so proud of me.
Anyone can look at others' eyes, but Lovers can see into each others' souls through the eyes....Larry Latta.
Can you see why I love him, who wouldn't, he's such a kind and loving man. I saw this in his eyes when he was a boy and I see it even more in the man he's become. He just cheers me along and makes me feel special beyond what I ever thought possible.
I see in myself what David sees, I'm everything wonderful that he says that I am. I was born for something greater than even I know. I also know that I'm on the right path now and I'm centered on the goal. I'm NOT taking my eyes off it, my self worth is intact and I'll never give it away again.
I have two spiritual children, my oldest who remembers to pray when she becomes unsure of where she's going. I want to openly tell her to get back on her path and that wonderful man she married will follow her. She is so strong willed, I love that she knows who she is and that she never settles for less than the best.
My youngest was baptized this weekend and I saw just how strong her spirit is, I'm in awe of how much she feels and knows. She will be a leader, she already stands up for what she believes in. I love to hear her beautiful and sweet prayers.
I am one of the most blessed mama's (mommy's) I know. My children grew in spite of all my short comings and faults. I am SO grateful.
