Carolyn’s Cup Runneth Over…

It was just over 9 years ago that my ex-husband walked out of our home, and the life I had known for 25 years went up in smoke.  At times the pain of that experience took my breath away. I felt I was suffocating.  If you told me then where I would be now, I would never have believed it.

IMG_4707I said “I do” almost four years ago to the wonderful amazing man I now call my husband. He is kind, generous, funny, and smart.  He keeps me grounded, showers me with grace and love, and has helped heal wounds so deep I feared they would never heal.  I am blessed, I am loved, and I am accepted for who I am. What more can love give?
Well, not only am I married to the greatest guy on earth, but I get to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth!  Because of Kevin, I am now retired at 56, living in a foreign country, learning a new language, and experiencing things I only ever dared to dream about.  I see this for the amazing gift that it is, and I am grateful every day.
Sure, I miss family and friends back home, and am anxiously awaiting the first visit, but this is a small price to pay for such a privilege.  Great things in life require sacrifice, but in the end the rewards are more than worth it.  If I could make a wish for everyone I know, it would be that they too will take a chance, and dare to dream of such a life.  The adventure starts with a dream. So dream people, dream!
To Kev I say, I love you more than words can ever express.  My heart is bursting, and I grow more in love with you day by day.  I love life with you, and the adventures we share make it always fresh, and more than amazing!  My cup runneth over!
