I had an epiphany just now. I was standing in my room looking in my mirror, just trying to figure out my own feelings on some things going on in my life. (I know that's kind of weird, but looking in the mirror makes me feel like I get a better view inside myself...)
I noticed reflecting in the mirror a picture of myself, it was one of my graduation pictures.
My dear 'Bradre' took them. He helped mold me, I love that man. And would drop anything to help any of his family if I knew how. Anyway. The pictures were taken around his yard, he has a rather scenic yard in places. I remember thinking of my future husband, and just my future in general, as those pictures were being taken. When I looked in the mirror just now and saw that picture, I realized that what I was really doing was dreaming of my 'Happily Ever After' . And that made me wonder if I've found it. I'm married, that's usually when it comes in the fairy tales. And I've decided that I have found it.I wouldn't trade my life for anything or everything. I don't think a Happily Ever After would be right without trials. I like it this way. I am Happy, and I think that happiness will just continue to grow.
So here's to Happily Ever Afters. I hope you can all find your Happily Ever After beginnings. (Especially Kare-Bear & Buzz, and Atlas & his Princess who are getting married in the next couple of months.) I'm grateful for my 4 and 1/2 years into Eternity that have begun my Happily Ever After.
P.S. We met the Future Mrs.Atlas and she is everything anyone could ever ask for, for Atlas. Not only everything he wants, but needs. We love her dearly, and I can't wait to see her again. She really is what he's been waiting for.
