I woke up thinking I may be meeting the Sweetheart and her husband for a potential low key set up.
I pulled out a fuchsia top, white pants and cute gold flats.
Mid-day I got a text saying they couldn’t get the guy they were trying to set me up with to come, he was out of town, but they were still meeting for happy hour.
As much as I wanted to meet up with them, I held off, because I also had an email from Mr. Wonderful’s mom. She wanted to get together before my birthday.
I have to admit I was kind of happy knowing I didn’t have to try to impress a boy tonight. I have dingy brown with gray roots shooting out of the top of my head, and I just wasn’t feeling it, so I emailed Mr. Wonderful’s mom back to tell her we were on for happy hour.
I chose a swanky place serving tapas, light bites with wine were perfect for our get togethers.
As usual, we had a great conversation filled with laughs, and catching up on her world travels and my future adventures.
As I left, I felt a sense of nostalgia about seeing her. The tea leaf reader predicted my life will change dramatically in the next year and that makes me a bit sad, especially paired with the potential setup.
The tea leaf reader said I would find love as early as May 19 based off my astrological sign. That’s so soon, just over a week away.
Sometime in the near future I will have another family to include in my life, while it will be wonderful to make that addition, I don’t want to ever lose sight of my connection to her.
She represents so much of who I am as a person today based off my relationship with her son. He taught me what it meant to be truly loved and that is priceless.
That connection is as powerful to me as the influence my family had on making me the person I am today. The person who stood by the man I loved regardless of the circumstances.
I’d be lying if I said I also didn’t feel a bit of a catharsis leaving this last decade behind. Sure it has been filled with some of the most amazing memories of my life.
I have single handedly knocked 3 things off my bucket list, and found true love, but there have been many heartaches to go with them.
You take the good with the bad, that’s for sure, and I will never forget any of this. I have grown up so very much these past 10 years.
It’s crazy to even think about my carefree life 10 years ago. I had it so good, and didn’t even realize it…. except for the jerk I was dating at the time. That was bad… but I learned from it and here I am today.
A grateful woman with so much to offer and give to the people I love. What an amazing journey I am on…. with amazing people beside me
