I remember being a student at USF in 1995.  I was convinced that there was no man on campus for me.  I didn’t know how right I was.  I was tired of trying to date guys who lied to me.

What I didn’t know, that later that day, as I was walking up cardiac hill, I was about to meet a woman who would change the rest of my life.  She was a friend of Gazelle.

I knew Gazelle through Mary and William.  Will had the hots for Gazelle.  Soon, I would discover that someone had the hots for me.

I guess I was ready for something different.  I guess that’s why I had to met her.  I guess I was ready for all the lessons I was about to learn.  I guess I was ready to fall in love for the very first time.  It didn’t work out, but what I learned about myself was priceless.

Now my life has come full circle.  I am ready to move onto a new stage in my life.  I guess that’s why I had to meet him some 3 years ago.  I was ready for the real thing.

He is the real thing.  I knew it when I first saw him.  I also knew that he knew.  I knew when he smiled at me.  I knew because his blue eyes, were the deepest shade of indigo I had ever seen.  I hated that he knew that I knew he had uncovered something secret about me.  But that’s life.  What a blessing he has been for me.
