Rustic Romance

I love the romance scenes in western movies.  They are set around a time of survival, with untamed horse and unknown lands.  They seek to discover the west and end-up finding their soul.  They awake to the morning doves nestled in the brush and they sleep in an open grand canyon at midnight.   Rustic romance movies have an everlasting effect of the American spirit.  I long to find the same type of passion and love.  Maybe my cowboy is waiting out there for me or maybe not.  As I travel through my "single-mom" life in search of new territory, I wonder what lays ahead.  My son leaves for college in a couple of months and my daughter will be in 11th grade.  Soon I will be alone to find my own adventure in God's plan.   Will my life be filled with the delight of wisdom and the thrill of new found courage?  Will it be the anticipation for what the morning might bring, or the thrill of what is already here?   I want a life that honest, simple, and reliable.  It may be a life shared with someone else or a life enjoyed on my own. Either way, I look with hope for my own rustic romance with life.

Treasure the love you receive above all.
It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
