Cricket's Thoughts

In That Moment . . .

In That Moment . . .

You wake up thinking about him, and wonder if he does the same. Does he feel the magic too? Is it possible? Can the heavens have decided that it is time to fix the horrible wrongs and mend the broken lives? Does it scare him as much as it scares you? In that moment, you feel hope like you have never felt before, hope for a new beginning.

Then the black clouds of doubt creep into your thoughts, leaving you hoping and praying that God isn’t playing some cruel trick on you, allowing you to dream the impossible, before snatching it all away again. In that moment, you feel fear, like you have never felt before, fear that something could be so close, yet still so far.

His soft smile is once again in front of you, his eyes and gentle words promising that everything will be alright. In that moment, you begin to believe, like you have never believed before.

    Good things happen to good people, and good people deserve to be loved, and to share love. You Cricket are a good person. Sometimes things are too good to be true, you have to trust your heart and let yourself go.

    Sometimes you can’t question it. Sometimes, it just is. 😉

    You stand there quietly waiting for the sunrise, thoughts of him gently filling your mind. As the sun just begins to break through the very edge of the horizon, you begin to know in your heart that it truly is about to be a brand new day . . .

    That’s lovely, Cricket. Nobody deserves it more than you. And maybe, just maybe, your words provide (yet again) a tad bit of hope for the rest of us.

    Oh Cricket, I truly hope this is the beginning of a brand new day/year for you. You are such a giving, caring person and you deserve so many good things in your life. In a few short words, you convery so much. My thoughts are with you. ~pat~

    Cricket, you have such a way with words! I hope that you are blessed as much as you’ve been a blessing to others.

    How exciting for you! So, what is his name? Where did you meet?

    Live! Love! and be happy! Trust yourself. Here is the Litney I spoke about.

    I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.

    All y’all are the best. Thank your for your words of support.

    Pam, I plan to keep things with us pretty private, so I’ll just be referring to him as my cowboy. 😉

    I found this quote somewhere on the net. I like it.

    “Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it… It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more.” Erica Jong

    You really hit the nail on the head with this post. It’s right where I am now and you described it so perfectly.

    It’s nice to know I’m not the only one out there experiencing these crazy feelings.

    Thanks for expressing it so well.
