They say a picture is worth a 1000 words…

I have been thinking of what it might be like to finally find my one true love…  That person who completes you, who makes you want to be a better person, one who loves you just the way you are.  A love that is supportive on both ends, challenges each other to grown, learn and to have a bond that last till the end of time…

I was looking through old pictures as I was cleaning out my closet and found the one I posted at the end.  Anyone who knows me, knows this is a picture of my mom and dad.  This picture used to make me sad, but that is because I wasn’t viewing it like I do today.  When I see it I don’t see that my mom would pass away a few days later, instead I see two people, a man and a woman who have loved each other for so many years.  A couple who endured so many life events together, some which would break up the average couple today.  Two people who sometimes didn’t see eye to eye, would fight and yell but always made up at the end.  This picture, is pure love, a man holding onto his wife, who he spent 43 years married to, but had loved her far before the I do’s.  A man who would have done anything for this woman at any given time and believe me he did whatever he could do in their lifetime.  A man who would have taken her place in that bed, who would have taken all the years of pain and sickness she had suffered, a man whose heart broke after she left him and why I believed he joined her 9 months later.

I used to think that my parents fought too much, that they were not that happy together, but I believe I was wrong.  I know through everything that happened to them and between them, they always had this special love, a love that did and could endure anything that life gave to them.  A love so strong, that even at the end, he sat there by her bedside and held her, kissed her and was the strongest man I have ever known.

I don’t believe relationships are meant to be easy, but I know love should be.  You shouldn’t have to change anyone you love, you shouldn’t have to make time, you shouldn’t have to fight to feel loved.  These two people in this picture, paint a scene that I would only hope for someday, to have someone who loved me so incredibly much, a love that could weather all changes that life can bring, a love that truly is a fairytale, because anyone who witnessed it could feel it…

I know some day I will have my fairy tale love, some may laugh at this believing there is no such thing, but this picture proves to me it does exist…
