Just what is a Soul mate? I have asked myself this question so many times since being invited to this Valentines day love fest dedicated to and in honor of SurgRN911 recovering from recent surgery...Di, you had better get well soon before SusiDee gets tired of doing all your typing.:)
Do I have the answer to this question? Absolutely not, but with my wedding anniversary coming up on the 20th of February and my oldest daughters anniversary today on Valentines Day, I just figured I had to write something in honor of these days as well.
If there is such a thing as a soul mate, Im sure I found mine more than 40 years ago. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, the hard and difficult times, as well as the joyous and exciting times, my one true love has been there for me to scale the highest peaks as well as hold my hand to pull me out of the lowest.. was there ever a doubt that we had made the right choice or been meant for any other. I think not ..Soul mates or just very lucky? I think both!
But, are their other forms or definitions of soul mates? Friends? I believe that friends can be soul mates. Have you ever had a friend that has driven you up a wall? A friend that made you crazy with stubbornness about one thing or another that you thought, why bother? I think those friends are the ones who are soul mates because if that emotion wasnt there you wouldnt bother, you would just give up and say auvoir or adios amigo and be on your way.. But, with a soul mate, you stick around, work it out and hope for the best. Another friendship worthy of being considered a soul mate is a friend you dont see for years, sometimes many years, but the moment you are together again or connect its like the last time was yesterday and you still know basically what is in the mind and heart of that person..
I consider my sister a soul mate, not only for the love we feel for each other but for the strange, very strong connection we both feel for the same place for no reason other than the fact that we both feel as if we belong there, as if we had spent other lives somehow connected there.
So, can a place be a soul mate, maybe thats not the correct term, soul mate, but a place where you feel your soul, your very being, belongs. Thats how I feel about France. As if Ive come home the minute my feet touch French soil... (believe me, its getting harder and harder to defend that feeling these days but, it is there none the less, even if I am more than a little disturbed by the French foreign policy at this time)...But, if there is such a thing as reincarnation, Im sure that I have spent a life or two as a French man, or woman.. My soul mate, my hubby, tells me I get a look on my face that is indescribable the minute I get off a plane after its landed in Paris.. Yes, it might be relief that we made it safely, but, I think not.. That look he says is like pure joy and is there for as long as we are tripping around the cities and towns of that country....My sister says she feels the same emotions..Neither on of us can really figure out why, we just know that is what we feel. I never felt that particular way in the 3 years I spent living in Germany or all the times I have visited other wonderful countries and places a feeling as if I belonged there Yes, there were some great times, some extremely interesting times and quite a few very exciting times but somehow the French times were just a little bit more intense, just a little more meaningful. Like my soul had come home.
Are your children your soul mates? I feel my daughters are. If only for the profound feelings of love and pride when Im with them, feelings deep down in my heart, to my very soul; and now their children bring the same feelings and emotions to me. That we are all connected in some vast unknown way, ways we will never understand.
There are writers here on epinions that I feel a strong connection to: people that I have never met and probably never will but who have touched me with their words and thoughts in so many ways And one person in particular that I have never met that I knew before epinions even , my internet buddy, who has been as close a friend as possible considering she lives in Indiana and I in Miami but we have developed a friendship and trust, have shared so much together just in E-mails and instant messaging that I feel there has to be some sort of reason or connection between us....Right Pal?
And one more question, can you be a soul mate to an animal? Some would say absolutely not, animals have no soul but I would have to disagree whole heartedly. .I am a cat person and have had many of those furry little felines in my life over these many years . I have had a great deal of affection for them all, but three have touched me in ways that are unexplainable. One, my little blue eyed Casey has passed on to that great kitty heaven in the vast beyond but fortunately, the two that are in my life right now, that I knew from the first moment of our meeting were very special and would add joy and meaning to my life are sitting beside me right now...I wrote about one, Luke, in a review and how our lives touched and will add the link to the bottom of this page for those that might be interested in reading about this special connection.....If you have ever seen that woman on The Animal Planet Channel that says she talks to the animals, well, as preposterous, as it seems, I feel these two cats in my life communicate with me in so many different ways that my human soul mate, who shares the house with us, is astounded at times.
Soul mates, who really knows what constitutes a soul mate? These are just my thoughts, my feelings, brought to the surface for this write-off after a great deal of reflection and pondering.. But, in any event, I do want to wish one and all a Happy Valentines Day, a day to share with your soul mate whoever, wherever and whatever that is..
