Bibbidy Bobbidy Boo ~ Finding Your Forever Love

Mark Hollis and I met under the clock at Grand Central Station in NYC on September 5, 2003. Prior to that I joined all the dating sites on the web and was actively looking for my "forever love." I have to say that my Big Angel that year was my husband, Mark. Sent to me by Spirit, and a wonderful match for my life's work and my daughter.

The previous year had been a blur. My custom home in CO had almost burned to the ground in a CO wildfire, (a forest ranger had burned a "love letter" near my home in Conifer CO in 2001), and my house was saved by one slurry plane.

 (You can't make this up folks!)

I was laid off while I had been pregnant with my daughter, Erin, during a Joint Operating agreement between two newspapers. My husband, Kevin, had left me for another woman while I was pregnant after putting him through software engineering school for many years. No explanation from him after 14 years of marriage. Life was definitely not o.k. How many stressors is that? Pregnant? unemployed suddenly? Needing to move cross country? Divorced? New parent? Wow!

Here I was single again after all these years....Yippee. (Not)

It was time to make lemonade out of nothing! I was even out of lemons. LOL
So I did. I squared my jaw and said: "that's it, I'm tired of giving and not getting. Tired of being alone. SO, I employed a little "love magic" by asking for exactly what I wanted in a man. Tall (o.k. so 6'5" is a little overdoing it), smart, (Mark's IQ is off the charts), Spiritual, (Mark was an "Emissary of Divine Light" ) www.  and compassionate, (my husband is one of the nicest people you will meet).

The "magic" was my determination to not settle for no one, or the wrong person, or to "give up!"
"ASK and you shall receive, SEEK and you will Find, KNOCK and it will be opened unto you" Matthew 7:7

If you want to go into medicine, you put the effort into medical school, right? If you want to be a teacher, you get your Master's degree, right? SO, if you truly don't want to be single why are you sitting on your couch waiting for the right person to come along? What are the chances of that happening, right? If you fail once, try again.

PUT IN THE EFFORT! If you truly want something, go out and get it.

It seems that we believe this principal was long as it has nothing to do with LOVE and SELF-Worth!
You are worth it, you deserve to be loved, you can do this. I know you can. I did it.

"Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if your young at heart." lyrics ~ Jimmy Durante
