I received the sweetest love note from a stranger on Facebook and I just have to share it:
“I saw something in your face, something that made my heart pause to read you, something that tickles in the heart, could it be love at first sight? Maybe we could find that out,lol.
I'm talking about faith here when feelings are so powerful it's as if some force beyond your control is guiding you to someone who can make you happy beyond your wildest dreams.”
I obviously wrote back and told him I was married, but I also thanked him for the lovely note, which came at a time when I desperately needed an emotional boost. Sometimes it’s the words of a stranger that carry you through. Sometimes the people closest to you are too close to see what you’re feeling and it takes someone standing far off to realize that your heart is in need of attention.
Sometimes we get so busy with our schedules and activities and deadlines and meetings that we stop noticing people. We see bodies but not faces. We hear words but cease to sense the heart behind the words. Life becomes a blur of responsibilities and something inside just dies. We stop noticing. We become too busy to feel. Overwrought with exhaustion, life literally passes by and we don’t even know all that has been sacrificed.
We all have needs. Whether male or female, we all have an innate desire to feel wanted, pursued, craved, accepted, nurtured, and loved. We all need to feel like we are a priority in someone’s life…like what we feel matters and matters enough that they’d stop the world if they could to heal your soul. Isn’t that the magic we all seek?
To be loved in a way that transcends logic… to be loved senselessly...to be loved entirely. ~
