I have always been one that has been able to prepare myself emotionally for the worst, yet hope for the best. Basically I do this to protect my heart. I am the only one I have, and it has been that way for quite some time. Whereas I truly believe that there is someone special out there for me. I have mentally readied myself to go through life alone. Thinking that I have found that perfect person, well perfect for me anyway. My job now is to convince her that I am that one for her. Though I have run into a financial rough spot, I do hope and pray that it has not deterred her from believing in us. It is a temporary storm I must ride out. As I negotiate the potholes and pits of this road, I am able to do so thinking, even believing that she will be there waiting for me when I reach the end of this bumpy ride.
