Every Now and Then I'm Going To Be Embarrassing. Can We Please All Just Deal With It?

I was a teenager when this song was released. I thought it was pretty, but never gave it much thought.

Until years later, when it became my desperate plea of hope. I remember listening to it often, and I would hope.

Long, loooong, dark, ugly, sad years passed by. I would listen to this song on my MC greatest hits CD, and I would hope. Then I got divorced.

More long, dark, ugly, sad years passed. I mean, they weren't all long, dark, ugly and sad. I had My Girls. And they were everything.

But I was alone. I dated, sure. But really, I was alone.

Until Him. And then the song came true. It really did.

And today I was running with my ipod, and this song came on, and I started to giggle. Out loud.

Because it all came true. Every. Single. Word.

Treated me kind, sweet destiny;
Carried me through desperation, to the one that was waiting for me;
It took so long, still I believed;
Somehow the one that I needed, would find me eventually.

I had a vision of love, and it was all that you've given to me.

Prayed through the nights, felt so alone;
Suffered from alienation, carried the weight on my own;
Had to be strong, so I believed;
And now I know I've succeeded, in finding the place I'd conceived.

I've realized a dream, and I visualized the love that came to me;
Feel so alive, I'm so thankful that I've received;
The answer that Heaven has sent down to me.

I had a vision of love, and it was all that you've turned out to be.
-Mariah Carey

Dear Every Girl Who Understands this Post:

Keep your eye on the prize. Don't settle. You don't have to get remarried in 6 months just because you're Mormon. I waited and searched and prayed for five years. And look what I got. You can do it too.
