Hope

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. – Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Those that have followed my blogs know that I did one with my personal take on some of the dating sites. I was really getting frustrated with the sites. I paid for premium so they could respond to me, but few ever did. I started to unsubscribe from many. I cancelled Zoosk and Match, though because I bought premium, they are still in affect until they expire. In the end, it was OurTime that found a connection for me. OurTime is for the over 50 set. I felt I was striking out there when someone reached out to me. Her name was Pauline. We started texting and we got to know each other. I found out she was deaf and started to teach myself ASL. There is a plethora of sites that teach, but I settled with this one group for consistency.

Before I knew it, we were arranging to get together. She came down to visit. I made arrangements so I could park in the Office slot so she could have my space during her visit. In the ensuing days, we would find ourselves sending texts to each other. During her visit, I took her to a local Chinese place I used to take my kids to. She taught me a few signs and we used our phones to communicate during our dinner. We connected and had a wonderful weekend together. I took her to Confectioners, a wonder bakery that has the most fantastic tarts. I showed her the craft shop I like to go to get my kitchen towels that hang on my stove. We walked all over with Ginger in tow.

After the weekend, we still felt connected and continued to correspond. I have found myself in love with her. She is supposed to come down again this weekend. I have scheduled a week vacation for me to go there. We are making plans and hoping for a future together.

I know the dating scene can be rough. Dating apps can be hard as people base their view of you on the profile you post and not what is in your heart. Somehow, we have gotten past that. I have really come to love her and hope this all can work out. We have even talked about buying a farm together. I do miss my chickens. I don’t know if I will go back to raising alpacas, but it was an experience I hold dear.

They key is, to never give up. Never short change yourself. You are an amazing person. You deserve to be loved.

My heart to your heart, one heart one spirit.

About Emma Morgaine Croft

I have been called many things on my journey, Professor, White Wolf, Rainbow Warrior and Spirit Walker. I had a blog on blogger.com for a number of years. I think the last post was when Papa passed back in 2012. I had also written for World Wide Hippies online mag for a year or so and even won a Golden Note for online writing. I got burned out writing and decided to stop for a bit. The only writing I did was comments on things I shared on Facebook. Unfortunately, that often got into a lot of angry and ugly talk. I try to maintain my cool, but there are just some unreasonable people out there. I found it emotionally and spiritually draining. I saw my niece's blog on here and thought that maybe it was time to resurrect Thoughts On A Cloudy Day. These are my thoughts and meanderings. You can accept them or walk away. I hope that in some way, these thoughts can spark other thoughts and sharing by people around the world. My dream is to make the world a better place for all people. My heart to your heart, one hear, one spirit.
