Dreams do come true

It began almost 30 years ago. I saw him…

I was standing at the top of the stairs and he was working in the store. I said to myself, “He is so handsome; one day he is going to be my husband.” That day changed my life forever. I had no idea it would take almost 30 years. He would marry someone else and so did I. The roads we traveled separately were tumultuous and daunting. Don’t get me wrong there has been good times over the years. Everything hasn’t been all bad. Thinking back everything that I have been through was preparing me for this moment. The moment I have dreamed countless times about. The moment that I thought would never come to fruition; especially after so many years I admit I lost faith.

Losing faith but still asking God, What’s the deal?  If he and I are not suppose to be together remove him from my heart. I mean I do believe If I ask for something and I am sincere in my asking I will receive whatever it is I am requesting. Yes, it works. I am living proof of asking and receiving. I have done it many, many times but my request about this particular topic was falling on death ears so much so that every time I asked he would come back stronger. No matter what I did or said I couldn’t shake him.

and so it has come to fruition…He is mine and I am his…

…and it goes a little something like this.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away…
(wait that’s the other story) About 3 years ago I was hired at Macy’s in Whitemarsh, Maryland; as a part timer. Two weeks after I started I loss my Best Friend, My Dad. I guess I wasn’t in a good place at the time, but in that moment…I was called upon to help a young black guy prepare for a job interview. He was homeless and had no money. So, my store manager called me to assist him with picking out an outfit. As I showed him what would be presentable for the interview I was giving him advice on mannerisms and how to conduct himself, in which he was very appreciative. After the final touch was given I noticed he wasn’t wearing a watch. The first thing that came to my mind was my Dad saying to me, “A Man should always have a good watch to be on time.” So I gave him my watch. I said, God Bless and Good Luck and sent him on his way. The next day at Macy’s the morning meeting started and my story about the homeless guy was told and from that point it took on a life of it’s own. The story went all the way to Macy’s Headquarters in New York. The next thing I know is I’m being celebrated as Macy’s Magic Maker for 2013 at Madison Square Garden. But that’s not all; there’s a buzz around the store that I’ve been nominated for The World’s Best Sales Associate for 2015. All I could do was shake my head, I just couldn’t believe all the fuss that was being made over me. To make a long story short. My cover photo tells the rest of the story. When you love what you do and your job is no longer work, it’s very easy to help people in need. God truly is wonderful!
Thanks Dad(my best friend).
