Dear Honey Run Friends,
In preparation for this letter, I read my past October writings. Most of my letters consisted of conversations about the fall colors and seasonal changes. And while this topic is certainly relatable it is also predictable. I do love fall and all that this season ushers into our lives. But the topic at the top of my mind and filling my heart is new beginnings.
I have lived a storied life. I have had opportunities to travel the world, meet exciting people, own and operate my own business, and be blessed with loving friends and family. I am blessed! This year has brought me my greatest joy in life, and if you can keep a secret, I finally found the woman of my prayers and dreams. I have had relationships and love along the way, or so I thought, until I met her. She has opened my heart and eyes to a reality I never knew existed. I have seen it in the movies and thought it was just that, a great Hollywood story. But my experience this year has shown me that this great love is possible in this life and love stories are real. I am so grateful for finding her and even more grateful that God has aligned our hearts together. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I know all that I will experience will be with her and this fact brings joy to my heart. I’m old enough to know that love, true love, is not just feelings but a choice. I choose to wake up each day and love her. I choose us. I pray each day that God molds me into the man she needs, and I pray that every step we take God is at the center.
I finally understand the joy I see on couples’ faces when they are in love at The Inn. I’m thankful and excited to know about this love so many of you have known for years. I pray if you have the love in your life that God has blessed you with that you show them everyday what they mean to you and never take them for granted. Love is a gift!
As I am riding high on the clouds of love so many songs have come to mind. If you want to rekindle or spark this flame in your heart, listen to these songs, and hold tight the one you love.
I hope you enjoyed the sappy love songs and if you are lucky enough to have found the one for you, hold them tight. And if you have not found the one, do not lose hope, God will open that door when the time is right. I certainly had to wait a lifetime to find and receive it, but I am so thankful I did!
Your loving Innkeeper,
