New Beginnings - Starting Over
Sometimes I think back on the past with pleasure and sometimes I think back on the more recent past with pain. I have many regrets and I often wish for "do overs", but we all know that we must accept the past and go forward.
I never thought I'd be married three times in my life. But due to circumstances beyond my control--abandonment and death, I find myself about to take the vows of love and commitment one last time. The right one.
There is an old saying "The third time's a charm" and I find this to be true. I have been truly blessed with the love of my perfect soul mate...the one that God chose especially for me. I must admit I never felt that with the first two times down the isle.
This man is different. He makes my heart do things it has never done before--smile, yearn, feel content, giddy and full of anxiousness to get a new life started. Soon. What a nice Christmas gift I'm giving myself this year.
I can't top that one.
