I don't know where you all stand when it comes to the whole higher power thing, but, I really appreciated this message. I do believe that in some way, shape or form, Beni and I chose each other for this life... so it's good to remember that she and I are both exactly who we need to be, and that maybe there is even room for growth for both of us on this path. :)
The presumption, Mara, at all times and under all circumstances, should always be that you are good enough, worthy enough, and lovable enough. And that you are exactly the right kind of person, in the right place, at the right time. Otherwise, you wouldn't have been instilled with such dreams in the first place.
