Well, Hello There July.. please be kind to me!
I wasn't going to post today but last night I received a lovely email from Miche at Buttons and Birdcages about Linking Up The Love which basically is about sending some love into the world whether it's to a stranger on the street or your closest family members... And well, I'm always into sharing the love.
I also though this would be a good time to share something that has been on my mind for a while.. You see some love stories are so precious they shouldn't be shared but today I'll share a snippet with you...
I was just a girl in bar, hanging out.. drinking in the surroundings when you caught my eye. I knew you were there when I walked in but dare not actually look over. It was clearly Boys night and I had no intention of being drawn into your night's entertainment until the moment we locked eyes...
You see, before that, I was a girl who had loved so honestly but had been cut so deep by betrayal that I didn't think I had the potential to feel anything more than a dull hum in my heart. But then there was you, when you looked at me I was completely taken off guard by how beautiful you were. And while I am aware it is not PC to call a man beautiful, when you see a beautiful man you just feel it because handsome or gorgeous are inadequate terms for true beauty.
Forgive me, I digress, when we shared our first moment, I immediately blushed and looked away saying to my friend "Oh my G..., he's looking at me" to which she nonchalantly replied "So, look back?" and when I did, you were still
looking watching me with the same intensity as before my blushing moment.. the longer we held our gaze the more I felt my heart start to heal. I broke our connection again but every time I looked up, which was several times before we actually spoke, you were there observing me with your intensely beautiful eyes.
You are beautiful and intense and your raw emotion healed me in more ways than I could ever explain. I thought incapable of love after my previous heart break but you started patching my heart which was previously shredded and made me believe that someone could look at me and make me feel love the way I always wanted and for that moment alone, I love you...
While this is not the end of our story, it is the end of this post because frankly, I think I've overexposed myself more than enough for today.
Has a stranger ever changed your life? Did you tell them... tell me about it in the comments :)
