Taking A Leap of Faith

This morning I took what I consider to be a daring leap, in the relationship with L. I called him and left a voice mail, saying, “Hi L. It’s Deb. We are having a hard time connecting on the phone, so I’m just going to go out on a limb and ask you to let me know when you can come over here for dinner.”

Because, it was true, that was why. I want to push through these intangibles, and I want to skip a second date at a restaurant. I want to be able to just sit and talk with him, undistracted, and give us a chance to get to know each other better. Since we have both expressed that we’d like to do that.

He called me back shortly after, and said he would love to, but he has to throw a wrench in things because he has to go back to Ohio in the morning, an early flight. For about a week. It has to do with a property he and his kids are buying and making sure the renovations are completed for the tenant to move in on Wednesday. He’ll be back next weekend.

I am fine with that. I had a big fundraiser tonight, I have the girls coming over Sunday, I have oral surgery Thursday….lots of stuff going on.

We talked for a long time. He made me laugh, a lot. He likes to do that, to make me laugh, and I love a man who can make me laugh, as you know probably. We talked too, about our relationship and where we are both at. It seems we are in similar positions. We both have a good life, and family and friends, and we both like each other a lot and want to see each other.

So it’s all good. I am so happy I called and left that message. I told him when he gets back, I will make him dinner then.

I had a nice time with my sister and my “step-niece” as she calls herself. She loved my town, kept saying she wanted to move here, lol. It was such a nice day out too. Nice enough that I wore a new sleeveless dress to the fundraiser tonight. And the fundraiser was great, we made a lot of money for the Veterans Art Center.

It’s been a really good day. Feeling very happy and blessed, as usual.

Love and light.TAkin

  1. I am glad you left that message too. You took a chance on leaving a bit of yourself in a vulnerable state out there and it worked. That’s brave, Deb! I wish you well with the oral surgery coming up. I’ve a dental procedure this coming Friday. I do not much care for the dentist at all, but this is required, so might as well knock it out. Have a beautiful weekend! 😊

    • Thanks trE . I don’t like the dentist much either, lol. Sitting there with my jaw open for an hour and tools in it is not my idea of fun. Wishing you good luck on your procedure too. As for being vulnerable, well…yep. It’s just something you have to do, if you want any of the good stuff in life. It’s scary, and can be even painful at times, but it’s the only way to open the door to all the good stuff like love and belonging, self-worth, creativity. Writing would be impossible for me, if I was afraid to be vulnerable. But that’s another blog, lol. Big hugs to you!!

  2. The good thing about this leap of faith is that you know who you are, what you want and don’t want, and you have a strong support network. Sounds like fun!
