Sharon and Mark - Love At First Sight
It was love at first sight 38 years ago and I can still recall the exact moment that Sharon and I connected. I still feel the same way about her to this day. At the time, I did not truly appreciate what Sharon was going to bring to our relationship but I soon found out from day one. She brought commitment, love, caring, honesty and vision to everything and everyone she touched in her life. It was her natural way of being and provided the opportunity for me to feel the hurts and resistance that I brought with me to our marriage. I live in awe of her each and every day and I constantly reflect on how amazing she is and wow, how lucky am I !
However, with seven children we both lost sight of who were as individuals as we put all of our energy into the family and what was needed in day to day living. Despite that, Sharon was always dedicated to a better way and a more connected life which has been consistent during our marriage.
Sharon has accommodated my resistance to change, and I am forever grateful that she has allowed me the time and space to honour the love I have to bring to this world.
I love that Sharon is prepared to speak and live the truth that is needed to allow the relationship to continue to grow and develop 38 years from the first time we met. We are happier, more loving and more connected today than we have ever been.
Over 38 years ago my eyes meet Mark’s on a footpath outside party we have both attended. In that moment when we connected, something inside me knew we would be together. This knowing lead to dating, marriage, having seven kids and playing out lots of unaddressed hurts with each other.
This made for a challenging 30 plus years where I often felt like leaving, but there was always something inside me supporting me to stay with it. Incredibly with the love and support of Serge Benhayon and our choice to heal our hurts, our relationship has begun to match the connection I felt when our eyes met so many years ago.
I am in awe that Mark has committed to providing for our family without ever complaining or being resentful which is no mean feat with 7 kids to feed. This is part of his generous nature, always sharing what he has with others.
In all our years together, he has been completely a one-woman man, deeply adoring of me and what I now hold as a woman.
Although not a lover of change, he has slowly been open to completely transforming how we live to be more loving and committed to ourselves and people.
Our journey together would not be what you would call a smooth one as we forgot to appreciate the unique qualities that we offer each other. When I reflect on our first meeting and all that has unfolded in the last 38 years together, I would never imagined I could feel the love and appreciation I feel for Mark today and it feels like this is just the beginning of where our connection and love will take us to next.
