I used to have a dream to dedicate all my life for the poor, the sick, the forgotten. But it seemed impossible, because on the other hand, I also have a family who loves me so much. They've supported my education until I graduated from university. And for that they had worked so hard, because we are not coming from a rich family. They have hope in me for a better future after finishing my education. I love my family, I need to work and help them.

I went through a hard time of my life for about 2 years. I often felt down, confused of what I should do for my life. I couldn't understand why I couldn't choose what I thought was a better way of living, helping other people, than the normal tough materialistic business world.

But then I chose my family, and I let go of my dream. I thought maybe God has other plan for me. And yes I was right. He has prepared a much better way for me.

I've never been in a relationship at all before. I'm not so pretty, not ugly as well, just average. I have quite many friends but I didn't understand why I hadn't found someone special. Those whom I like didn't like me, and I didn't like those who like me, which were not so many as well. I often felt that I was a strange person, with different interests with other teenagers. I thought I was a boring person in their opinion. Young people these days love clubbing, shopping, who has such interests like volunteering, living with the poor, etc. They would think I was ridiculous, want-to-be-seen-as-an-angel person. So sometimes I don't talk much, I hide who I really am, I feel ashamed of my interests, my difference. I don't have confidence in friendship and love life.

But last year, God sent me someone who would make all my dreams come true. He's a son of a priest, a religious and social person. His whole family live a simple life. His grandparents own an orphanage, and they take care of the orphan kids in their own house. They live with those kids every single day, those kids are like their own family too. He just came to my life all of a sudden, already had an interest in me, wanted to get to know me more before I even noticed him at all. Just like being sent from heaven for me.

He'd also been searching for someone special for years. And he said I was everything he wanted. He saw in me, things he always looked for, which he couldn't find in other women. And he is the one, who doesn't see me as a strange person, he even likes my "uniqueness", and that's what he's been looking for all these time indeed.

He shows me that my dream isn't an impossible dream. I can live normally, work like other people while also living around those who need us, which I thought was impossible before, which I thought was two absolutely different paths to walk on. He shows it with his own life, he's been living the life of my dream all his life. And I get everything. I get the normal life for my family, I get the social life where I can find my true happiness (not only donating or volunteering occasionally, but we can actually live with them as well), and I also get the man of my life.

Both of us feel that we are meant to be together, that this is God's plan for us. After only 2 months, we've had the faith and commitment to spend the rest of our lives together. We've talked about the future and marriage. And right now we are working hard to make it a reality, saving money to buy a house together and to have a wedding reception.

God's plans are beautiful. What we think are impossible, aren't impossible in His eyes. When He doesn't give us what we ask for, that's because He's preparing something better for us, which are even beyond our greatest imagination.

oops looks like i disappeared after posting this one.
suddenly remembered about this great forum and i'm back! :)

thanks olivia, thelaughingman, and ladybird!
sorry i've just seen your comments now.

and i also want to continue this story:
I'm married to him now with an 18 months son luv
And I'm also on my way writing a social religious book about his grandparents who have a truly amazing life journey.
Here I quote what I wrote about them on my original post:
His grandparents own an orphanage, and they take care of the orphan kids in their own house. They live with those kids every single day, those kids are like their own family too.
I've known a publisher and I plan to publish this book next year.

He's sent from heaven and all my dreams come true..
Everything is beautiful in God's plan :)
