love.ninja

i just got off the phone with a good friend, who just a few nights ago, surprised me with the news that she is getting married! today she filled me in on all the wonderful, exciting details and i am so incredibly elated for her! (you can gauge my level of excitement by the use of two exclamation points so far and the fact that i'm resisting dotting the end of each sentence with them). i loved hearing the unbridled joy in her voice as she told me about the whirlwind of meeting, realizing, deciding. that sense of awe at finally finding what she has been looking for - her complement, best friend, helpmate, love.

i don't believe that there is just 'one' perfect person out there for each of us. but i do think that there are instances where two people meet and everything fits together so effortlessly and easily that it just 'makes sense' to be together. to them, and to those around them. and not just that is is a 'sensible' move according to the rules we have in our heads, but that our hearts wouldn't have it any other way. i think about all the decisions, big and small, that occur in order for two people who 'complement' to cross paths. for the timing to be right. and for that connection of hearts to occur. surely, there are miracles in that process.

b, i'm so happy for you. i can't wait to meet the lucky man that has captivated your heart.

I feel like the mirror reflection--my close friend is the other half and you took the words to describe it out of my mouth!! :)
