“I wasn’t expecting you. I didn’t think that we would end up together. The single most extraordinary thing I’ve ever done with my life is fall in love with you. I’ve never been seen so completely, loved so passionately and protected so fiercely.” Beth Pearson
I found this quote and immediately thought of my husband. Honestly, I didn’t expect to find or fall for another after my first failed marriage, yet here we are 15 years later, married with children, a rollercoaster ride; yet I would do it all over again.
Imagine, our first encounter was a mutual dislike; literally we could not stand the sight of each other. We laugh about it now when we tell the story but it was pure dislike at first sight, the kind of scene you’d see in a movie. And then one day we had to do a project together for work, something I really wasn’t interested in doing with him.
While we were completing the project we had a real conversation, honest talk and it was down hill from there! I saw myself in his world, hell I couldn’t see my world without him. I still can’t, even if it all ended tomorrow; I’d never regret him being in my life, bringing me new life and hope. He gave me all that back when he came into my world. It’s just that simple.
God knows we have our moments, days, weeks, months, lol years but what it boils down to is love and respect. I’ve never doubted his love for me and the children, his kindness is unmeasurable and his passion to want to protect us at every cost is overwhelming at times. So, I say all of this because if you or someone you know is down on finding love again, don’t waver. Open your heart, trust that there is someone that will honestly give you love with no hidden agenda. It’s possible.❤
