I've loved reading all these stories of first meetings and happily ever after. Love and romance is a huge part of my life. After all, it's what I write every day. Bringing together two people. That spark of attraction. Eyes meeting across a crowded room. Sharing that first magical kiss.
Okay, time for my confession. I'm single, as in never been married. I've never made that perfect connection. Sure, there have been people in my life that I've loved and still care about. But that one special person, the deep heartfelt connection you know will last for all eternity? Um, hasn't happened for me (yet).
I am a believer in true love. I've seen it happen all around me. My grandparents were a perfect example. Two more opposite people you'd rarely seen. Papa was 6 foot 4 and a mountain of a man. He worked for the railroad all his life, a rugged outdoorsman. Mama was barely 5 feet tall, and loved to cook and sew and do all the housewife-type things. Yet they FIT. Watching them as I grew up, even as a youngster, I knew he worshipped the ground she walked on and she adored him. They even renewed their vows on their fiftieth wedding anniversary. Their marriage succeeded because they never took it for granted. They worked at it every day, to keep it alive and fresh and real.
I know love is out there. It's not some ephemeral wisp of smoke that fades away. It's not a whisper on the wind. It is knowing your other half feels exactly the same way about you as you feel toward them.
So, if anybody happens to see Cupid hanging around, send him my way, because I may give up on a lot of things, but I will never give up on love.
