I woke up today and realized that my heart, my emotions, which tend to rule my life, are too strong for my weak soul. How did I, the one who always had her guard up and trusted no-one suddenly found that I needed him around?

I took it slowly, fully aware of the danger in front of me, but never expected an attack like this to come at me from all angles. I felt like a soldier completely unaware of the enemy hiding on the other side of the wall.  We walked into each otehr, face to face, and that was it, my soul surrendered.

I know my armor is still here somewhere, but I cannot seem to find it?  Does that mean I don't need it anymore, or that for the first time i am in complete control of me? No fear of pain or loss, just faith that I can endure anything.

What an absolute surprise to look in the mirror and and see a smile on my face. This must be the point they all talk about, where suddenly you realize what happens next. Am I ready? Oh well....here goes everything
