“Love is born in fire; it’s planted like a seed.
Love can’t give you everything, but it gives you what you need.
And love comes when you’re ready, love comes when you’re afraid;
It’ll be your greatest teacher, the best friend you have made.”
– Kate Wolf, Give Yourself To Love
I believe in love at first sight. It happened when I met my future husband. tried to resist because he wasn’t my type. He was kind and good and I didn’t think I deserved him.
Instead I thought about which girlfriend to hook him up with. That madness lasted one day. Then I woke up to the fact this was the man I was meant to spend my life with.
Today we received the best Valentine’s gift ever. Our residency in Portugal was approved. We’re not only staring a new chapter in our lives we’re starting a whole new book.
When we met my walls were covered in maps and I dreamed of exploring the world. His shower curtain had the world map printed on it and he dreamed of living in Europe.
Almost half my lifetime has been spent with this kind soul walking by my side. We’ve lived many places, including Europe but It’s taken almost thirty years to make our dream of living here permanently a reality.
I never thought I’d find him because I was so busy looking for myself. I’m glad I took a chance on love. Thank you my love, for taking a chance on me…
