"Life is filled with so many exciting twists and turns. Hop off the straight and narrow whenever you can and take the winding paths. Experience the exhilaration of the view from the edge. Because the moments spent there, that take your breath away, are what make you feel truly alive."  Stacey Charter

There is a Chinese proverb that states when soul mates are born there is an invisible thread that is tied to each of them.  As the years go on that thread pulls you closer and closer together until the day you meet.  On the day that Mr. Insatiable and I were married, his mother read this proverb from a beautiful card she had given us in celebration of our engagement. I cherish this moment.

Your heart is pounding, palms sweating, butterflies are churning in your stomach....and you question your symptoms. "what is wrong with me?"  "why am I feeling this way?"  "Could he be THE one?"

I remember the moment our threads were pulled close together...our first kiss, falling asleep in your arms...crying into your shoulder...

There are things in my life that I will never forget.  These things carry me through the days where I can't go on; the days that I need to cry and the days that I need a hug and you aren't there to give one to me.

Our first kiss is one of those moments. It was about 4 in the morning when you finally looked into my eyes and it was like it was written.  Your hand slowly held the back of my neck and when your lips met mine, something happened like we were froze in our own moment in time.

Moments that hold your spirits high.  Moments that allow you to step outside of yourself and know that there was one defining moment that you were truly blessed.  Moments like when you held me to console my loss.  Although I have remained slightly fractured since she made her exit, you have always kept her spirit as close to me as I keep her.  Although I wish I didn't have such memories, when you held my hand at her funeral I knew that it wasn't just my loss - you shared in that pain too. 

I have more moments stored away for another day that perhaps I will share them with you today.  My heart is yours forever and always.
