We haven't had a love story on WWDN for a little while and so we thought what a lovely start to the weekend it would be to share the aloha! Enjoy Michelle & Sheila's story, which shows you never know when you'll end up meeting the love of your life!
Love Stories ♥ Michelle & Sheila
This is a story about Michelle (the blond in the pics lol) and Sheila written by Michelle. We both live in Florida, USA. Thanks for the opportunity to share our special story!
Our story began in a pet store. I am a special education teacher, and was looking for some summertime work. I had applied and Sheila, one of the store managers, called and left a message on my machine to come in for an interview (little did I know how she would change my life a few months later). During my summer as a cashier I got to interact with Sheila briefly---sometimes to call her up to my register to help me out or while in passing on the floor.
Slowly over time, I began to realize that there was something about this person that was special. I felt like I could tell her anything and be my true self when she was around (although we barely said more than a few sentences to each). Subconsciously, I knew I had to get to know her better. My last day at the pet store I mentioned that I was on Facebook, and she told me to look her up sometime.
Despite our brief exchanges, the fact I had no idea if she was in a relationship, and, oh yeah, the fact I had never been with a woman, I HAD to be around this person more. I always felt that I was meant to be with a woman, and the feelings I had scared me, but I was ready to explore and listen to my inner voice that was pushing my so strongly in her direction.
The rest is history! There were many challenges and ups and downs during my coming out process---challenges which Sheila stuck by me through thick and thin, but over the course of our 3 years together we have become one amazing couple. Although, we are complete opposites she is my best friend, and our relationship cannot be defined in words. It is a feeling, a knowing---something beyond our understanding of what true love is. Everyday with her is a dream and the greatest adventure of my life.
We have 8 of the sweetest pets, and together we are one happy family. I cannot imagine my life without her. I come alive when I'm around her, and I'm thankful everyday for everything she sees in me, her unconditional love and support, and the FUN we have when we're together! I'm pretty sure there isn't anything that Sheila and Michelle can't do together, and I know that I will be with her until my last day on this Earth. I'm so glad to share this story with others because love is what's truly important in life. Thanks for reading!What a super sweet story of finding love and being true to yourself. We wish them (& their 8 pets!) a happy life together.
