Soul Mate Search…

I always looked at my parents and was amazed at how much they loved each other. Every marriage has there challenges…but I never grasped the term “Soul Mate”. Oh, I know the meaning…but often wondered what that must feel like…why does it only happen to certain couples. My brother, three years younger, is married to an amazing woman…they are “Soul Mates”. They finish each others sentences, can quote most funny movie lines together (unexpectedly) and move through challenges with an increased love for each other. I think most marriages start out believing the person you are marrying is the right one.

I began my “Soul Mate” search several years after my divorce….I met and dated some terrific…some not so terrific men as I looked for the right one. My kids often teased me about the names I had given to a number of men that I had become an exhausting experience! After 11 years of looking, I decided to give up..(I think this was the key to my mission)

Then I saw HIM…What captured me first? The old worn out hoodie he was wearing? Not really….it was the gentleness to his face and a wonderful dimple on his left cheek when he smiled at me. As we had our first drink and shared with each other who we were and what we did…I was struck by the intent gaze to my eyes soaking up every word that I was saying. What’s not to like about that! It has been a wonderful year with a man “who gets me”. Soul Mate – BINGO….we have similar interests, we are quite different in certain ways, but for me…it has been a man with an amazing heart, a strong faith, a love for my children and joy in his step because he is with me!

A Soul Mate is a wonderful name…I think it is probably different for everyone. I

would tell any single person to not settle until you find the one that is a fit…you will know it when you have it!  I often say that “God is never early…I think He is often late…but what I have learned is He is orchestrating the whole event. It is not just about me…His timing is always perfect!

Today, I begin a new journey with this incredible man that I love with all my heart. Mark Frisse…you were well worth the wait! I love you very much…see you at two this afternoon!
