I just spoke to a very dear friend today who had the best news. She has a new sweetie, and it seems he's smitten with her.
In a very short time he has done multiple sweet and thoughtful things for and with her that make it sound (to me) that he's crushing on her big time.
And this makes me so very happy. She's a really great woman and I'm thrilled she's met someone who sees what a prize she is. And the best thing about it is she met him doing something she loves.
She decided to go back to school to get a degree in a field that excites her, something she's done as a hobby for several years, now she's going professional and she'll be earning a living at a job that really feeds her soul (once school is over that is!) She had the guts to quit a safe, but draining and ill-paying job, to try something that would make her really happy. And it seems that doing that has opened the floodgates on so many good things coming her way that it really gives credence to following your bliss.
This is one of the great things about life: being happy and excited for your friends and their happiness. Okay, it's new, who knows how it will go - but do we ever know how romance will go? The point is right now, today, it's great - and I am so SO happy for her.
You just never know what's around the corner. Best to keep your eyes open and stick around to see for yourself.
I just love it when good things happen.
