When Love Heals

Every
now
and then

~

love
stops
everything:

~

the
noise

~

the
chaos

~

the
pain;

~

Every
now
and then

~

love
shines

its
wondrous
light

on

~

even
the

darkest
corners

~

through

~

the
fear

~

the
loneliness

~

 the
struggle;

~

Every
now
and then

~

love
surprises

us

~

with

something
rich

~

something
magnificent

~

something
extraordinary;

~

And

~

Every
now
and then

~

Love
shows us

~

its
astonishing
power

~

to

Heal.

 A Look
Through The Healing Lens
of this special couple

I am delighted to introduce you to a most remarkable couple, Rachel and Bill, featured in the stunning image above. I was mesmerized by this photo when I first viewed it, and asked Rachel if I might display it in a post, and share her heartwarming story with my readers and friends here.  She was honored.

Rachel and Bill met September 9, 2010 on a Facebook online support forum consisting of a group of patients coping with hip dysfunction, pain and surgical decisions. Slowly, and in spite of their respective pain and struggle, they discovered a magical connection across 800 miles. There were four months of letters before they met; And then, through the stressful rigors of surgery and a lengthy difficult rehabilitation, they became each other’s support, encouragement, motivation and hope. Their story is a beautiful testament to the fact that, every now and then, love shows up where we least expect it… and can, literally, change worlds. “He is my angel” were Rachel’s words to me this morning, after thanking me for seeing the magic, not only in this image, but in their love story. 

I will never forget when I met Rachel on this same support forum, and we first chatted about our ongoing mission to overcome the hip problems and pain…we compared rehab strategies and surgical experiences. It was then that she told me of her new blossoming romance with Bill, one that was born of both physical pain and emotional challenge. I was deeply moved and uplifted, and now, I am doubly delighted to include each of you in the celebration, and beautiful spirit of  their history.

With great joy, I dedicate this post to the beautiful union of Rachel and  Bill.
They were blissfully married on September 8, 2012 .

Their story of love, healing and inspiration
has touched many lives.

Blessings and Love to them
Always!
