Topic: dreams

Keep your heart open….because
Love sneaks up on us…when we least expect it.
When we're in line at the ATM, or we've just dropped our keys down a sewer grate.
When we're buying extra paint looking like we've just been flocked...or getting out of an elevator with a face full of novacaine.

Love won't look, sound, or say what we imagine it should.
Throw out the wish list; Love seldom arrives in the uniform we design for it!

It may brush your shoulder, or run right over the top of you,
or wave at you from a bus.
When it hits, there won't be any bells or music…you may have a hard time remembering your phone number! Love trips us up. It plays with us.
We just can't control its coming and going…but we can be on the lookout!
There is only one quality that must be in place for it to find us:
We have to believe love is coming.
The fact is,
Someone is out there right now, wondering where the hell you are! And I've got news for you: you're LATE!
Keep your heart open...

If you see a tiny spark, fan it like crazy.
Reach for their paw, put your toes over the edge of the cliff.. and believe you can fly.

You may live a couple of lifetimes before you collide. (Apparently, Love doesn't take taxicabs). So wear something bright or silly.
Talk to people in elevators, say hello to their dogs, hum a tune at the carwash.. make yourself easy to find..because they may be The One!
Love won't be on time…but it's on its way…and you sure don't want to miss it!

LOVE takes its dear sweet time and will run circles
around us until its ready to put its foot out and trip
us. My honest opinion is that LOVE is a prankster.
I believe that God has someone chosen for us right
from the time that we are born but due to our
human nature to stubbornly follow our own path we
more times than not miss that certain someone and
end up with someone else...Sometimes it can be good
other times can cause us a world of trouble and hurt.
We make our beds and we have to sleep in them.
We are technically our own worst enemies (lol)
