So in love

I use to think I knew what love was until last weekend. I’ve felt it, I’ve experienced it, I’ve learned about it, and I have read about it. Most importantly I studied it via John the Baptist who lays out the foundation on how to love through Christ. Last weekend I attended a close family friends’ engagement party. Prior to attending I was a little nervous because I was spending the weekend with the whole family. I have only met two, and though they were great I wasn’t sure about the others (only because I hadn’t met them yet).

After what seemed like a long drive we arrived to White Plains (Westchester County), NY and I took a much needed nap. As I drifted in and out of sleep I was wondering how the interaction would be once the family came home. Would we have great conversations? Would they like me? Would we have anything to discuss? This went on for a few hours until it was time for me to run some errands with the mom (who I have met). Conversation with her was great. She asked me how I was doing, I helped her with her errands and we made our first stop to pick up one of her daughters. She greeted me immediately with a hug and a smile. I breathed a sigh of relief. This won’t be so bad after all. We exchanged some words until we dropped her off to pick up another daughter. Conversation with her too was off to a great start. My fears immediately disappeared. We got home, and the eldest daughter was already home. We hugged, kissed and exchanged I haven’t seen you in so longs. I immediately got to work helping them with the many projects to prepare for Saturday’s festivities. My first night with the family was a success.

Throughout working and interacting with the sisters and other family members I began to feel some sort of connection. Not only a connection with them, but also a connection within my spirit. There was so much love and light being poured out from them that you couldn’t possibly not be touched. Throughout my short time with them I fell in love. I fell in love with myself, I fell in love with my spirit and I fell in love with life and everything that it embodies. How does one fall in love in such a short period of time? Love is such a strong element that it physically, mentally and spiritually attacks you without a blink of an eye. Love puts a strong hold on your heart once you ALLOW it, and it will take a force stronger than the Universe (impossible) to remove this element from your life.

Last weekend I became a believer of love at first sight. I learned that throwing love out there will not only benefit those that need it, but it will also mend my torn interior. I have to continuously remind myself that I won’t feel like this all the time. There are days where I will feel like the world is crumbling at my feet, and there won’t be any where to turn. In spite of these shortcomings that will for sure enter my world love will still have a home in my spirit.

For now I am thankful for this love that has completely taken over. I am thankful for that weekend in White Plains with 3 amazing women that helped me began my journey of finding true love and light. I pray that they will be showered with blessings and continue to have a spirit that inspires change.


En tout cas (in any case),

    Jen! You are an amazing writer and I am so glad I discovered this. I came across it through Facebook and I have (like the piece says) fallen in love. I have fallen in love with the emotion you write with and through reading each piece I find myself learning so much more about this beautiful person. Please continue writing so I can continue to fall in love over and over again through each new piece :o)
