It began with nagging doubts and unanswered questions. And the heart questioning the logical mind if the decision to go was the right and best thing to do.
It has been said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. But in this case, there is the sudden yet clear realization that the journey actually began months ago and the initial steps had already been taken, albeit unknowingly. What is left is the leap of faith, the trusting jump into the abyss where the fear of the unknown is thrust aside by the implicit faith in an unquestioning and enfolding love.
That the leap into the unknown was an act of trust and blind faith cannot be questioned. But the rewards have been spectacular and worth all the anxious waiting and the uncertainties in the mind. Truly those who love truly and honestly are blessed, for in the loving is bliss and comfort, a sense of coming home to the familiar hearth where the fire of contentment burns brightly amidst a doubting and skeptical world.
Perhaps there is a benevolent and guiding spirit that protects and nurtures the magical yet gossamer threads that link human hearts. Perhaps it is this same spirit, sometimes fickle but never arbitrary or malicious, that ordains in those rare occasions when everything must come together to create that magic moment when love comes to full bloom.
In this instance, the magic did come and, as expected, it was something truly beautiful to behold.
