People Come Into Our Loves for a Reason - A True Love Fairytale

People Come Into Our Lives For A Reason…

“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives
For a reason…bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow – if we let them…
And we help them in return.
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true…
But I know I’m who I am today because I knew you…”

Fate brought us together and God took us apart, but in forty years we learned so much from each other..from 20 year old kids to 60 year old “youngsters” we changed in a multitude of ways…from Greg’s bushy hair and mustache to my ever changing hair styles, we matured, learned to love in so many different ways, and learned to be the very best of friends. We lived a life of celebrations, challenges, joy, and hardships. We lived through happy times, sad times, angry times, and pure frustration. But through it all, we learned and grew…we grew to be better people…and I know I became a better person because he showed me the way.

The best Lessons I learned:
1. Be Kind…it gets you everywhere…whether speaking to a stranger or your very best friend, kindness is the only way.
2. Be humble…no one cares what you have, what you drive, or what you are wearing…
3. Pay attention…I’m learning that now with all the things I didn’t pay attention to and should have…my bad!
4. Find your passion and follow it – it will always bring joy into your life.
5. Forgive and let go – life is too short to hold on to things you may regret.
6. Love means having to say your sorry and mean it.
7. Live for today…tomorrow may be too late.

“It well may be that we may never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine by being my friend…”

I am certainly no princess, but I did marry my Prince Charming. We had the once upon a time and the “almost” happily ever after until August 30th, 2014 when my Prince Gregger died tragically on the beach in Maui. I believe in fairytales. I believe in fate. I believe that “everything happens for a reason.” We planned a lifetime together…75 years to be exact. Someone or something changed our plans and gave us a new “ever after.” So here I am. I am still a wife, but now they call me a widow. I am a mom and grandma…three children, two in-laws, and two grandchildren. Life has changed and it’s time to move forward. It doesn’t stop, it keeps on going, so I do too. It’s my choice. Be happy, be grateful. It’s the only choice. I have a treasure trove of memories to’s how I keep the happily ever after alive. A True Love Fairytale is 40 years of memories…it’s the essence of our happily ever after. It’s the imperfections of our perfect marriage. And it’s what makes today beautiful.
