"Love is on the way
On wings of angels
I know it's true, I feel it coming through
Love is on the way
Time is turning the pages
I don't know when
But love will find me again
I am not afraid
Of the mystery of tomorrow
I have found the faith deep within
There's a promise I have made
There's a dream I'm gonna follw
There's another chance to begin
And it's coming as sure as the heavens
I can feel it right here in my heart"
I remember hearing this song for the first time (or truly acknowledging it) after the man I was sure I would marry ended up falling in love with someone else and moving on to marry her. At that time the movie First Wives Club had just come out and I played this song until I had cried every tear I had left inside.
I put men on the shelf and lost myself at the same time after that heartbreak and the returning to me is how 'project me' truly started. Interventions of a few good friends at the time helped me see how I had allowed others to give me a reason to self?destruct.
I stopped that self destruction a long time ago and have been hopeful of love for a while now. There have been some beautiful men in my life, but none with the hope of lasting.
Of course it's all going to come flooding back with the combination of my sister's wedding and Valentines Day within a day of each other. ?It's a lot of emotions all mixed into one and it doesn't matter that I haven't heard this song in a good few years but the words came rushing back yesterday. It was as though there were being sung to me ...
Sung to me when my friend let me down for our Valentine's dinner
Sung to me when I got an?anonymous sms and found out later it was a guy I asked to leave me alone
Sung to me when I man I was once in an intimate relationship with asked me to help mend his current broken relationship (Apparently it's in my job description ... um?)
Sung to me when my beautiful sister and her new husband returned home from their romantic wedding night
Sung to me when all my friends were posting beautiful love messages to their valentines.
Sung to me when I could hear the concern in Greggie's voice that I was let down for the night
Sung to me when I spent hours talking to a man that hasn't made mention of meeting after a lot of communication
Sung to me when I climbed into bed alone .... well, there's always kitty to keep my company.
I'm not lonely or pining for love and I'm never worried that I will spend my life alone, but some days just have 'when?' written all over them and considering 'truth' is my motto in life ... I had to follow my heart's question and wonder when?
Catching the bouquet at the wedding was totally scammed by everyone there, by the way. My brother in law told my sis how far to throw and one friend shoved me forward while all the rest took a step back. I take that with all the compliment it was intended ... I've never caught the bouquet before, so maybe the myth is true 😉
I can't believe how blessed I am by friends, family and blogging/tweeting 'stranger' (because I feel as though I know you) for making me feel so loved and special. Without knowing it, each one of you reminded me that my time is coming ... that love is on the way on wings of angels!
Until then ... I'm still the luckiest girl in the world, showered with love and a million reasons to smile 😉
This is why you inspire me. It was a lonely day for me too but I felt lonely and sad. I moped around a lot and was jealous of a lot of the love I saw around me. Your way seems so much better.
I cannot repeat the day, but I can change my attitude from this point on. Thank you.
You are right, love is on the way straight to you because I do not know of anyone more deserving.
You are on the track to getting 'project me' so right Jess. Half of it is just being able to tell yourself the truth and see what you do with consciousness.
I don't see the point in affirming positive things when the truth is that you are too scared you won't meet someone. Keep telling yourself the truth hun ... you are doing great.
This is one of the best things I have learned from following you. It took me a while to get my head around it and I am still not great at it, but I am trying.
Well Jess, that's more than most people. Be a little proud of you every day 😉
I thought I would never find my man and it took me until I was nearly 40 but I am happily married now. I don't even think it is about having to stay positive or not. We are all deserving of love. Good attitude girl.
Thanks for this ... it's inspirational and you can never get enough of that 😉
This old lady has been married for 38 years. Enjoy every moment of being single and have all the faith you can because the wait will be well worth it.
That's the attitude. Great song by the way and coming from an equally excellent movie.
Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. It is a decent enough attitude and an awesome movie 😉
Great post. Honest as ever and I love the songs you add.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting Summer. I honestly believe there is a song for every life situation and I'm thrilled to be able to share them with you.
You are not alone in being along but you handle it very well.
Ah, it feels good not to be alone. Thanks for the comment Mr D.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for commenting.
