Since I was encouraged to do so.......

I will write a post about NewMan.

NewMan is actually a past relationship. We met a long time ago. We were friends for a few years before I was divorced the first time. We started dating about a year after my divorce. I was instantly in love.

Sadly things didn't work out then. We broke up about 6 years ago. My life then took some major curves and I ended up moving, and essentially losing touch with this phenomenal man. Both of us went on to live our lives out. Both meeting other people. Both embarking on relationships, having new babies, etc. Ironically, both our lives seemed to have fallen apart at the same time. Thanks to a mutual friend, we found each other again.

We have faced some trials since we have come back to one another. But, it has all been worth every bit of it. We know there are many more trials to face, but we intend to meet those head on and face them together.

I am not sure how many of you believe in soul mates, in destiny, in fate. I definitely do. If I didn't, I never would have taken this opportunity at a second chance the way I have. I know there are a great many people who have opinions about me, about us, about how I have chosen to live my life. To those people, I say, "F-you". When I stepped off that plane and saw this man whom I have not seen face to face for 6 years, and felt like I was finally where I was supposed to be, I knew I had made the right choice for me and for my family. I was completely and utterly in love........and I realized I had never really stopped loving that man.

As for what we are like together.....it is like every fairy tale you can think of. He is my Prince.....he is charming, not only with me but with everyone he meets. He is gallant, loyal, romantic and amazing. I am his princess. He treats me with the utmost of respect and care, putting me and my wants, desires and needs above all else (like my need for a strong cup of coffee first thing in the morning even though he never drinks the stuff himself). He seems to be able to anticipate my likes (except for that of heart shaped jewelry) and is conscientious to my insecurities. He has taught me to love myself with the utmost of uncondtion, the way that he loves me. This is really something I have never experienced before I met him, and never have again.

Stay tuned for more...............

That is a lovely story....But according to Slyvia Browne...we misuse the term "soul mate" according to her "soul mate" is our person in the other world that looks out after us and cares for us....I like that thought...as for my match here and now....I like to believe in fate....it was fate that we were meant to be together...my hubby and I have had to over come some huge obstacles as well....But I truly believe we came together for a reason....he's who I want to be with....he's my mate here on this big planet we call earth.

Thanks for dropping by my blog....

Happy Monday

I have always looked out for her, and loved her and cared even as distance kept us apart and time flowed for 6 years. My actions support that. Slyvia's (Or Sylvia i would assume) should know what it means to find someone that cares for you, loves you and becomes part of you so completely that they are in essence a part of you. Loving you unconditionally to a level that your greatest triumphs and flaws are shared and seen as nothing but an experience and lesson of love and understanding. Not many have that. I have been in relationships in my life. This isn't a just connection, it isn't being in love with someone. Its a bond on an emotional, spiritual and physical level. So deep, that 1000 miles, 7 years and seperate lives haven't kept it apart. Fate? I don't know. But she completes me, and my soul.

Awwwwwww! Between your post and his comment, my heart has melted. I definitely believe in fate and soul mates, and it seems to me that the two of you are truly meant to be together.
