I'm so happy for her...

I might have to wait, I’ll never give up
I guess it's half timin' and the other half's luck
Wherever you are, whenever it's right
You'll come outta nowhere and into my life

And I know that we can be so amazin'
And baby your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility

Somehow I know that it’ll all turn out
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And promise you kid I'll give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yet

I know a very nice, lovely, smart, funny girl who hasn't had the best of luck with relationships.

However, she hasn't let it get her down, and has confided in me that she's a bit of a skeptic about relationships anyway.

She is always saying that she refuses to settle...and her mother told her, "Eventually, you WILL have to settle...EVERYBODY settles at SOME POINT."

My friend squinted as she told me this and said, "Says who? Why do I HAVE to settle? If it's just me on my own forever...there are much worse things to be than alone."

And then everything changed.

And then she literally met a guy in the grocery store.

And a month later, she has never been happier...

I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to say that I actually know somebody who might have just met the great love of her life in the grocery store.

That really happens!

Who knew!!!!

She raved on and on and on...about how she never knew things could happen like this...that she absolutely never saw it coming...that she is truly, truly happy.

I kept telling my friend how much hope her story was giving me.

Those things really DO happen and aren't limited to AT&T commercials.

Recently, a friend told me that her boyfriend told her that he was surprised that "guys weren't knocking down my door." It was a compliment. I get that. But at the same time, I'm glad that they're not...I'm glad that I've had my moments when I've felt discouraged and left-out and a bit hopeless...because then I hear a story like my friend's and it proves that everything really works-out and it really DOES happen when you least expect it.

When it's's right.
