It’s hard to believe it’s been 27 years since the day we met, my life hasn’t been the same since.
Not everyone believes in love at first sight, but I do. We are proof it can happen. To be honest, I was head over heels for him before we were introduced, something inside me just knew he was the one. The one who would transform me, the one who would always love me as much as I loved him, the one who would change my whole world.
And he was. He still is.
After months of getting to know each other, I was more than anxious to meet him, I have to admit though, I wasn’t quit ready for the way it happened. We were in the midst of finalizing our plan to meet when he decided he simply couldn’t wait and began his journey to me a whole month before I was expecting him to arrive. I was thrilled, but nervous. I thought I’d have more time to clean up the house, maybe get a haircut, and have everything just perfect when he got there.
His arrival changed the way I thought about perfection, it wasn’t always something you planned, it wasn’t always the way you thought it was going to be. Sometimes, perfect was simply in the eyes of the beholder.
I will never forget the moment we saw each other, I saw my future shining in his eyes. I did see perfection. When I reached for his hand and his fingers touched mine I felt everything I’d never felt before, I melted into him and held him so close. I vowed to love him, without condition until the day my last breathe leaves me.
He is a precious, precious piece of my heart, my first truer than true love.
Happy birthday, my beautiful son . . .
