Yesterday I got a random email from an old flame. It was nice to hear from him although I realized that I was only 18 when I dated him(wait a minute, on second thought I must have been 19 or 20, see how old I am?) I can not beleive it has been that long ago. Who was I back then? Who was he?
It is interesting to me to look back on past loves now that I am the ripe old age of 47. I often think to myself, "why dont I remember the realtionship I had with that person"? I feel badly that I dont. Was it because I was just too young and into myself to remember anyone else or was it because it was just so long ago and I have changed so much that I just can no longer relate? Just an intersting question. However, there are a few that although I was very young I will never forget because of the impression they had on this very vulnerable young girl. Anyway, all I can remember about this young man is that he was cute and fun...knowing me at that age,that is probably all that mattered to me anyway:)
Then as I think about my Love now, my sweet Valentine, I think, "wow, did I get lucky or what"? All I can say is that I am sure happy that time has passed and that I let my Father in Heaven lead me to my Valentine instead of falling for what I thought I wanted and needed when I was too young and too immature to really know.
Thank goodness there is someone who knows me better than I know myself.
Love back then was fun while it lasted.
Love Now will last Forever!
