Love is truly the most powerful emotion alive! I’ve already told you Del and I’s true love story. Lately, our marriage has been strained because of his back issues, but our love is just as strong today as it was many years ago.
As I was watching One Starry Christmas on Hallmark I was reminded just how much our love story is a rare thing in our world today. Many people (Unfortunately, I’m just as guilty.) get married for all the wrong reasons. True love is not the main reason why they get married. They get married for convenience or because it’s the next logical step to take in their relationship.
Marriage with your true love is totally utterly different compared to being married for the wrong reasons. Del and I have our fights and our battles. There have been times while we’ve been married where I’ve wondered if we’ve made a mistake getting married too. Yet, the minute I get in his arms or close to him, all of those feelings of doubt are washed away in an instant. I’m right where I belong!
I can feel his presence even when we’re not even in the same room. I feel how he’s feeling. Seeing him smile with delight warms my heart even if I’m not the person to give it to him. I yearn for him to be happy and pain free.
He loves me just as completely. He has always made me feel like the most cherished person in his life. He shows his emotions with great intensity. He gives our relationship just as much as I do, and in many cases more than I have.
When I watch romance movies like One Starry Christmas, The Notebook, and a couple others I am reminded how blessed I am to be with him. I’m reminded that I am living a true love story. I can only pray that my kids find their soul mates. A relationship with your soul mate is the most remarkable thing in the world to have.
My wish for those of you who are single is that you find your soul mate. For those who are married to your soul mates, may you continue to cherish each other and nurture your relationship until your dying day.
What is your true love story?
