LOVE

LOVE.

“I wonder how many people never get the one they want, but end up with the one they're supposed to have”. What a fabulous line from Fried Green Tomatoes, a movie that everyone should have on their TOP 100 MOVIE list! I feel like this quote tells the story of my love life up until the man of my dreams swept me off my feet when I wasn’t even looking for love. It seems as though I never had a healthy relationship with the men I was dating. The relationship always turned very physical and then that was it. There was not the emotional and spiritual connection that I longed for. There wasn’t the security of knowing he would love me in sickness and in health. There were never the thoughts of “us” in 30 years. Why did I stay? Why did I always settle for what was not best for me? This, my friend is what often happens with girls. We stay. We settle. We lower our standards. We take what we think is all we can get. Why?

Oh how we search for someone or something to make us significant. Ultimate need...to be chosen...sometimes it didn't matter who. Truth needed.
