I know that Lady Bloggers is having a tea party and SITS is probably going to have something too so I wanted to make sure I had a new post up for all the visitors. I love visitors. If you visit me, I will visit you. I am a very loyal blogging friend.
Anyway, I have had many things going through my mind as to what to write about here. I guess maybe I should write about the special day it is tomorrow. On June 12, 1987 I was married to my husband Tom. My life has truly been blessed because of him and I am so glad I have married him. He has made me what I have wanted to be most of all. A wife and a mother, although the mother thing didn't work out as planned. Check around the blog about that. I would help you out but I don't know how to do that link up thing.
I don't want to shock any one but Tom was not the first real love of my life. Someone else was. A guy I met in college that I will call John. John was going to college where I was. He was a blind student. I was majoring in Special Education and part of a class required me to do some type of service with a handicapped person. This service fell into place well. A girl came up to me in another class and asked me if I would like to read to him. WOW. I read to him and it was awesome. We became friends. I admired him greatly and felt like I have never felt about myself before. I think I felt the way God wants me to feel about myself.
The semester was over and we left for Christmas vacation. Upon returning to school, of course I looked John up and saw him. He told me that he had fallen in love with me ect. I realized I had too. Great and wonderful right? WRONG. He was MARRIED. I wasn't though. That was the saddest day of my life. Long story short, I never saw John again.
But when your heart is broken and God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window. My door was closed in the early 80"s and my window didn't open until November 21, 1986 when I met Tom at a singles dance. I love Tom very much. Because of him I have grown and learned so much as a person. Also, because of him I have a wonderful son who I love very much. I don't regret marring Tom at all. I think it was God's plan. I feel I was blessed for following God's laws and not breaking up a marriage. Marriage is a very sacred thing to me.
I still do think about John from time to time and wonder how he is. He truly touched my heart and I need to remember that he feel in love with my spirit and not the way I looked. For it is truly what is on the inside that matters the most.
Thanks for listening to me and I hope I was able to explain things well enough. It is hard to know exactly what to say sometimes.
