Looking for Love
I know it's not Valentine's Day and I'm not dreaming of cool weather, either. But I am thinking of romance. Romance hasn't been a topic in my life for quite awhile. In years past it was a prime topic and hope sprang eternal through good romances and not so good romances. Hope poked its head up through dozens of singles events and then, after a string of awful evenings, it just went into hibernation. I have a nice life, for which I am deeply grateful, but no romance and no hint of romance and that's the way the future stretched ahead.
Walking home this evening hope -- out of nowhere after a very long sleep -- poked its head up. Maybe somewhere, somehow there is a nice man out there. I'm not looking to rekindle any old fires, despite every other movie on cable. Somehow, in quite the same miraculous way I found my blog friends there is a romance waiting for a still-cute sixty year-old. I'm asking for inspiration and a pat on the back for my good friend, hope. Please tell me any miraculous romance stories you have lived or know of. I'll take distant ones of your sister-in-law's cousin and the great guy she met at the post office.
Dear blog sisters, you've given me hope and inspiration and laughter more times than I can count and I know hope and I can count on you again!
