"Now at last they were beginning chapter one of the great stories no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever; in which every chapter is better than the one before."
When you know you know.. I hadn't quite understood that phrase until now.
I never realized just how much someone could understand me. I have always felt as if I was from a different planet with my wild dreams & crazy creative mind that never stops. I was quite certain that 'Paige Land' was a place I would always go to alone. My place where I was happiest wasn't somewhere I thought anyone would want to ride along to. Is it possible that someone would join me on my crazy journey? I thought I was content being there by myself. I had accepted that. Or did I really?
And there he was, my Charlie boy. Its hard to describe the feeling when you find that kind of honest connection. It's so revitalizing and frightening all in one! Could I have possibly found someone that sees the world through my prospective? Being able to connect on that level was so riveting that I found myself opening up even more then I ever had before. I have learned things about myself that I never knew existed & so did he! Yea I'll admit, he was rough around the edges at first. Little did I know, he had traveled down some rough roads along the way. That didn't matter much to me because so had I & that made me love him all the more.
I feel that the most unlovable people in this world are the ones that need love the most. Showing them how to love and that they are valued is what breaks them free. When we alter the most stubborn of roots, the feeling is indescribable.
In the beginning I used to wish we would have found each other sooner. Truthfully, I feel all life's hardships become the hidden meaning. They mold us into the people we are today. I used to resent those weak moments, but now our reality is so much clearer. We both needed those broken roads, to not only understand ourselves better, but to also appreciate what's standing right before us. I can easily say without a single doubt, the timing was perfect.
Charles, I take you to be my best friend, my faithful partner, and my one true love. I promise to encourage you and inspire you and to love you truly through good times and bad. Im so very excited to continue this journey as your wife!
You're My King & I'm your Lion Heart....
