Leap of Faith (Days 257 through 259)


I have been M.I.A. for a long time.  One day soon, I will play catch up for Days 173 through 262. But for today, I want to share a recent Leap of Faith.

The Internet is rife with very big, bad, terrifying things.  When “meeting” someone online, one never truly knows who the person is on the other side (and the same holds true in reverse).  So when meeting people in “real life,” one is taking a Leap of Faith.

I have been Blessed over the course of my life with the people I have met.  My very first experience was way back in 1994 when I met Mr I-Do-Not-Have-Children-To-Pass-My-Legacy-On-To.  Even though our relationship did not work out in the end, it still worked out.  My next memorable experience was in 2011 when I met Baby Number 2’s rack mate’s mom.  We talked daily for weeks while our sons were in Boot Camp.  We are still going strong five years later. In 2015, I met another wonderful woman. She and I bonded and spoke daily/nightly while our children were in Boot Camp.  Her daughter was at MCRD Paris Island while Baby Number 3 was at MCRD San Diego.

My most recent Blessing occurred this past weekend.  I have been “talking” to my beautiful friend, Jenn for months.  Even though we have known each other for a short time, it feels as though I have known her my whole life!

We have been talking about getting together for some time now.  This past weekend both she and I took a Leap of Faith. She and her two gorgeous and adorable children drove down and spent an all-too-brief weekend with me (and my hubby).

This is not something either of us do normally.  In this day and age of things like the “Craigslist Killer,” human trafficking, and many other terrifying things, meeting someone in real life would not seem to be the wiisest thing to do.  However, there are times when one “just knows” and it pays off.  This was definitely one of those times.

Jenn,

You are such an incredible and amazing person!  I am so very happy you took that Leap of Faith!  The weekend was DEFINITELY NOT long enough!!  You are as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside.  Your children are living proof of your strength of character and very much a reflection of the beauty that is YOU!

Thank you for my amazing gift basket!  Although, I seriously doubt I will be sharing anything with Mr Just-Right-For-Me!  LOL  As for the Ketchup Chips . . . Sadly, I am not a fan.  One or two chips are ok.  A whole bag?  Not so much. Hahahaha

Honey, Milo and I were all very sad when you guys left.  Their sad faces screamed, “Car ride, Mom, so we can say good-bye again,”. So, we jumped in the car to do just that!  They were both happy and sad.  I was just sad.  For the first time in a very long time, I did not like the emptiness of my house.  I really miss you . . . All three of you!!

I want to say this:  Thank you for your Leap of Faith!

I love you, My Beautiful Friend!  ❤️❤️

I am looking forward to my trip north.  We are going to have crazy-fun!

Here is the result of our Leap of Faith:
