This week’s photo challenge is the elusive subject, dreaming. Although the approach to the challenge is to find the perfect shot that represents this theme by selecting a long-range, slightly out of focused shot, I thought instead I’d use this challenge metaphorically and title it Dreams. For we all have hopes and dreams that start very young in our life and if we are lucky, we are able to fulfill them.
For me, one such dream that I had hoped for as a little girl, was to find a soul mate who I’d walk down the aisle in a beautiful long flowing white dress and live happily ever after. Perhaps I’d read too many fairytales as a little girl, but it was something I always dreamed of having in my life.
I wanted to find a soul mate who would love me unconditionally, who would be there by my side for the good and the bad, and who would share my days with love and joy.
At the time, the children weren’t even in the picture. Not that I didn’t want them, but it was more the thought of finding my true love, my best friend and my soul mate. I was completely happy on my own being single. Yet I felt like some part of me was missing. When I met my future husband Paul during my early twenties, I realized that I had found what I was looking for. The missing link that completed me and made me whole.
