Memories and Poetry – A Personal Post and a Happy Meeting-Versary

10 years ago today I found my soul mate….
 
I wasn’t really looking, well not in the place I found him [online dating] and he was completely different from I always thought I was looking for.
But something made me want to meet him…the warmth of his emails, his laid back demeanor, a little bit of charm, cheeky grin…
 
Our first date was over Raybans and Aliens…at the movie Men in Black 2.
 
A love of ice cream is always an ice breaker [pardon  the pun].
 
I think I knew that 4 hours of talking later that he might be a teeny bit special..
 
I found this poem that kinda describes that first flush of romance, those feelings and that hope we all have that we will find that someone who will complete us…

I always knew love would come find me someday
but never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way
you caught me off guard and took me by surprise
but you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyesIt’s true that every good and perfect gift is from above
you were presented to me as a beautifully packaged gift full of humor, talent, intelligence, beauty and love
“it isn’t finding the perfect person but learning to see an imperfect person perfectly”
we all have our flaws but when I view you through my eyes, perfection is all I seeFrom when you laugh to when you’re upset, I still love the little things you do
especially hearing you laugh and seeing your nose wrinkle the same way mine does too
coming into this relationship has been hard at times but we’ve made it through
I know as long as we’re on this journey together, there’s nothing that we can’t do.Sometimes I wonder if what we have is too good to be true
too scared to get my heart broken and scared of the thought of losing you
but in the end, I trust in the author and perfecter of what I believe
because what we ask for in Him, we in return shall receive

“Where your treasure is, your heart will be also” is how the saying goes
I may not know what tomorrow may bring, for God is the only one who knows
the one thing I do know is that you are my one and only
a treasure in my heart that I want to devote my whole life to completely

I know I don’t need to prove my feelings to know they’re true
because what I’ve known in my past, doesn’t come close to the experience I’ve shared with you
I’ve had the experience of being in relationships before
however, this is the first time I’ve been truly happy… I couldn’t ask for anything more
it’s an honor to know that I am yours, as you are mine
and I trust God that He’ll bring us together in His beautiful time

For now, I’ll be waiting patiently for that day when we’ll be together
that precious moment in time when I’ll say, “it’s you that I want to be with forever”
God made everything beautiful, precious and new
just as beautiful and precious as the day will be, when I look into your eyes and say, “I Love You”

And I have been so lucky that 10 years down the line, I am blessed with a man that loves me.
 
I might be a little chunkier, a little more aged but I am still the girl he met inside. He might be a grumpy, and slightly chunkier boy but he is my grumpy old boy and there is still that childish twinkle.
 
I am lucky that he is supportive of me [ he is rubbish at housework] but he is a good husband and father and he puts up with my moods and that has to be worth something, and I look forward to the next 40 years of growing old together…
