Does this sound familiar?

 

Soulmate

As a child you learn of a soul mate…a person made perfectly for you, your two souls become connected as one and are destined to be together until the end of time.

Through adolescence you grasp on to this idea of a soul mate, believing you will someday find the one.

But after much heartache and many rivers of tears, this notion you've held onto for years begins to fade.

As time goes by, day by day, year after year, you move forward, accepting of your failures and proud of your successes…until that day......

This is a day like any other, it begins no differently than yesterday and the days before, but it is a day that will change you forever, a day that the magic and fantasy of a soul mate becomes real.

For each of us it happens differently…the holding of eye contact, an introduction, a smile.  Regardless of how it began, the moment is unforgettable. 

It was a magical moment, frozen in time, the surroundings, the smells, the feeling you felt.

The rush of warmth through your body felt exhilarating and new, yet somehow familiar.  It was a feeling you imagined time and again…but never this powerful.

As butterflies fluttered in your stomach it was an explosion of emotions.  Who is this person that can make me feel this way?

As this invisible force draws you to this person you can sense a mutual feeling.  A connection unlike any other you've experienced before, impossible to resist. 

You feel a burning, a fire from deep inside, that you can not ignore.  From that first second of encounter this person is there with you, in every thought and action…causing you to smile, laugh, and feel more alive than ever before. 

This person becomes a part of you, your other half…your soul mate

And as you learned as a child, this person was made perfectly for you, your two souls are connected as one and are destined to be together until the end of time

 

Like the little girl in Sweet Home Alabama said to the young boy, "Why would you want to marry me anyway?"  He answered, "So I can kiss you anytime I want".
