Blessed Friday Morning!
I didn’t chime in yesterday for Valentine’s Day. I, of all people, who has never been happier or more loved in all her life. Well, as an empath, I was overwhelmed by sadness yesterday. Not mine but of those who have lost the love of their life or had no one in their life. No matter what I did, I just could not shake it. As with any holiday, we must remember there are those suffering instead of celebrating. Yesterday instead of sending out happy wishes, I lit a candle and spent time lifting up those who have empty hearts. I have been there and have had those feelings. I know what that feels like. Take a moment today to lift up a little prayer for those whose hearts have experienced loss, have been broken, or simply have closed or hardened their heart to the pain. It is only when we open up and deal with the pain that true healing begins. Once healed then miraculous things can happen to bring the right person into your life. At least, it did for me.
Now, for a Valentine’s Story~Four years ago this month, the Divine powers that be brought Herb back into my life after 37 years apart. We were high school sweethearts for 3 years until my Dad broke us up. (Daddy’s little girl syndrome. Herb had long hair, drove a fast car and was in a band. Not the kind of life Daddy wanted for me.) He found me on Facebook and the rest is history. He arrived here in Florida on February 1st neither of us know if it was going to work or not. Thirty-seven years is a long time! People change. But the moment our eyes met all those years disappeared and it was like we were in high school again. The feelings had not changed and strangely enough, had grown even stronger. On May 1st, we will have been married 4 years now and it has been the happiest years of our lives. I quit believing in happily ever after, after 2 failed marriages and 3 abusive relationships. I spent 4 years seeking who I was and my purpose in life after the last failed relationship. I had to open up A LOT of old wounds and clean them out. The result? I first learned to love myself first, because if you don’t love yourself, you cannot love someone else properly. Secondly, I allowed my heart to be open again which lead to me to a life of compassion and love for others, within my own set boundaries. Boundaries are very important to maintain happiness in your life. The moral of today’s message~ never give up on love. At the right time, it will come.
