Dani looks out at Chase with a smile on her face as if he is the only man on this earth. Grandma Hattie walks into the room quietly and unnoticed by Dani. She watches Dani as she looks out the window at Chase running down the street for his usual run to the track field at the high school.
Dani turns around to see Grandma Hattie standing there with a smile on her face. She says, baby you are falling in love with this man and it’s only been three months… My My My… How times flies when you’re having fun and falling in love.
Dani smiles and says yes but I want to fall in love like it was the very first time. Grandma I wrote this request like prayer to God about Chase. Can you read it and tell me your thoughts? Sure baby, let me see it and grab my glasses of my dresser in my room. Dani runs down the hall into Grandma Hattie’s bedroom to get her reading glasses. She returns to her room and hand the eye glasses to Grandma Hattie who is now sitting on the bed.
Grandma Hattie reads Dani’s prayer for Love to God out loud.
Fall in love I want to fall in love and embrace the true meaning of real love that is truly unconditional. Love that is unconditional like that between a mother and child. A love that is unspoken intimacy that electrifies your mind, body, and spirit. I want to fall in love with a man’s soul. I want to capture his love in a way that no woman had ever earned. I want to fall in love with his spirit and his character. I want to fall in love with his smile and his touch. I want to fall in love with his heart unconditionally. I want to fall in love for the very first time with my one and only destined true love that God has handpicked just for me. I want to fall in love with my soul mate. I want to fall in love for eternity. I want to fall in love and cross over into heaven with him. I want to fall in love.
Dani, this is beautiful baby! I see you have eliminated that horrible checklist that you had six months ago… Oh no Grandma that list is not gone all the way, there are a few things on it and a few things I took off. Like what Dani? Because reading this beautiful love letter request to God. This checklist of love is nothing like that checklist you ranted off to your sister Deidra. This love letter request and prayer that you writing to God makes sense and is everything a woman should have when you recognizes true love and a real man that God has placed before her. I think you need to burn that relationship checklist and stick to this love letter and prayer request to God. Think about what I am saying to you. Besides, I see how you look at Chase when he is going for a run or when he walking out to his car. Baby, you’re falling in love with the man God sent you already and you can’t see that he done already answered this love letter or prayer request for love that you call it. Open your eyes baby and you will open your heart to true unconditional love.
