My Beautiful Amazing Love Part 1

What made her reach out to me that night? I honestly do not know. I do know that if I ever asked her she would say God told me to.

I was recently separated and she recently lost a son. And…yeah…I will say God told her to reach out to me. And not just because I needed a friend but because she needed one as well.

She had been in my shoes before. I had not been in hers though. She would offer advice, especially for the kids and I would listen to her stories of her son. I didn’t just hear her…mind you…I listened. Big difference.

Over the course of the next year of talking on the phone for hours, texting back and forth, and even praying for each other our feelings for one another somehow changed.

Then one day out of the blue as we were hanging up she didn’t say the normal “sweet dreams” she said “I love you” every so quietly and hung up. I called her back, immediately, of course. And asked did you just say I love you?

I told her that I had been saying that for months as we were hanging up just not loud enough to be heard.

We talked for about another thirty minutes but this time we both said I love you out loud.

A sense of peace washing over me as I said those words to her for the first time. And that sense of peace never left until many years later…

Many of you have asked me to share my relationship with my beautiful amazing love. I am trying to honor those requests. These will be sporadic as I have other posts that are stuck in my head and I have no idea how long it will take to describe why she is my love of a lifetime. But I will try. Please be patient and understanding with me as I reflect on such a wonderful woman.

  1. YES! MOM TOLD ME YOU POSTED THIS AND I’M BEYOND EXCITED! 😃😭 I can’t wait to hear the rest of it! I will though, because from watching mom tell her stories I can understand how hard it is to write down such profound experiences. ❤ I’m so happy you’re doing this, Stuart! 😊

    1. I’m glad you are looking forward to the story 🙂 I truly appreciate your support Destiny. You and your mom have been such an encouragement in this area of my blog.

      I truly feel it’s time to share this part of my story so many will understand who I am today and why.

  2. I can’t believe I missed this series Stu! For some reason I just don’t get a lot of your stuff in my notifications or even if I go to your blog. So sorry. 😐 This is a sweet and beautiful unfolding of your relationship. I’m so happy that you two have this together. 🙂

    1. I understand the notification thing. I’ve given up on that and just use my email to find yours, Amy’s, Kathy’s, Purple Rose’s and others.

      Is my blog not easy to navigate?

      Thank you. It is a unique story of a love I never thought I would experience ❤️


      1. It may just be me, Stu. I cant find a lot of your posts on your blog. It’s like it don’t show all of it, but I’m on my WP phone app. Not sure if that is the reason…You may want to ask other people if they are having the same problem. I think mine is simple. Hopefully…I’m scared if I change my layout theme that I will make it complicated. But I don’t have categories like yours and a lot of others. I just throw all mine into the file cabinet and slam the door, so to speak 😂 🤦‍♀️ I had to give up doing my notifications from email. It racked up to 7000! The more I deleted the more that seemed to appear!

        1. Oh yes…the emails that keep pouring in. That’s about how many I get a day. I will be honest….I delete about 100 every hour or so except the ones I want to read from certain bloggers and the ones where the title intrigues me 😊

          I remember once Gail saying she had a hard time finding my follow button. I’m afraid if I change I’ll lose the blog image that one of my friends off the Bible app created. I would hate to lose his work. Maybe I’ll go fishing for a new theme next week…

          1. It will be ok. Just keep doing what you are doing. I wouldn’t want to lose my blog image either, if someone had created it for me. Concerning the emails, I can’t tell you how much relief it has been for me to disable all WP notifications by mail! It sure did take a lot of stress off me. You could try it for a few days and see if it helps with your time. You can always go back and change the settings back…just food for thought
