I Never Regretted Falling In Love

I’ve never been a morning person and this morning was no different. Groggy eyed I stared into the mirror as I brushed my teeth when something strange happened, the reflection in the mirror appeared to be talking to me.

Have you ever regretted falling in love? Wished you never met her?

I rubbed my eyes and thought okay I didn’t have anything to drink last night and I know I’m tired but this can’t possibly be happening. Then the reflection asked again.

Have you ever regretted falling in love?

Alright I’ll play along, I mean if nothing else this will be a good story to tell my therapist.  So, I looked in the mirror and said no not at all. Why not? The reflection asked I mean you were really hurt, you’re in therapy, that last relationship really took a toll on you. Yes, it did I replied  I was hurt and I’m not ashamed of being in therapy it’s been really good for me actually.  But the moment didn’t break me. Didn’t it? Asked the reflection. No It didn’t I said because I’ve come to realize that moment is but one moment along a longer journey I am on, and I will not be deterred by just one moment. I will continue my journey unafraid of what lies ahead, confident that one day it will lead me to my true love. So, I say again no I have never regretted falling in love. With that the reflection said great I was just checking to make sure you still believed in love because someone out there believes in it too and one day you’re going to find each other. Oh and by the way I’d keep this conversation between you and me, tell your therapist and they just might think you’re losing it.

Skies may darken but the rainbow awaits

Sometimes our love for someone can blind us to their true face. It is at these times God will darken our skies just a little. This is not a test for us but for them, a test to see if they can stand the rain or if it was just words. It is God’s way of washing away those who are not good enough to be in our lives. We may not always understand this and their loss may be painful, but it is only temporary and when our skies begin to brighten again our true soulmate will be waiting for us at the end of the rainbow.
