*I wrote this years ago, so why am I sharing it, because it’s far from my best work, simple to mark my growth as a writer.

Chapter One:

Love has a way of coming at you like a bullet train, but love, true love is such a wonderful thing. I know I am blessed to have found my love. Geoff even his name speaks to me, and I know God has a reason for bringing us together. We were meant to be together, as meant to be as milk and Hershey’s chocolate syrup.

I had my questions at first, would I really ever know what love was? Would anyone look beyond the chair, and the chip on my shoulder the size of an Arctic Glacier?

I am more than grateful the Lord saw it fit to bless me with a man like Geoff. At times I feel like those storybook damsels who find their happily ever after with a prince charming who wipes them off their feet I feel the same way about Geoff my night and shinning armor. Perhaps fairy tales don’t exist but this love is real.

I love the feeling of melting in Goff’s arms, the love I feel for him is tangible, and I am grateful for that. The man that is now my husband changed my life in a very big way, and opened my eyes to see that sitting around feeling sorry for myself was not the answer. I needed to let myself feel love, and I needed to love. I am glad it was Geoff that taught me that lesson.

Geoff is the love of my life and I know that I am blessed to have found such a loving man. I could have given up after the accident, but I did not and the Lord rewarded me with the best man in the world. I really do feel this way, the Lord has blessed me and I am on cloud nine.

I am so glad that Geoff sees me for who I am, it’s like he doesn’t even see the chair, and I am glad for that. I want him to see me for me, and not to be pitied because of this chair, and believe me people do, do that. I love the fact that I…
