1940's vintage

For some reason this never posted as scheduled!

A few years back, I was fortunate enough to travel to Hawaii (Oahu) to see my best friend and her family. One humbling experience I had while there was a trip to Pearl Harbor (the USS Arizona). I don't want to write a play-by-play of the tour, but it's one of those life changing experiences that is never forgotten.

The 1940's was a different time. I'm sure most women didn't have time to think about what to wear, they had to attend to the needs of their family and their community! The men were away at war, and the women began to take over.

Those women used the clothing they already had available to them, and they managed to remain beautiful. I do believe that all women of that era had inevitable style and class.

That's what makes 1940's vintage so appealing!

Dear Diary #1: Will He Ever Love Me Again?

Dear Diary,

I've messed up.  I've hurt him deeply.  I created this evil image of him to cope with my own pain.  I didn't care how my actions would affect him.  I've used unimaginable tactics as methods of control.

I never expected a friendship to form out of the ruins.

I never expected the phoenix's ashes to regenerate into magnificence.

And I've allowed myself to fall in love again. 

I didn't mean for it to happen, but it has.  It's intense and fierce.

Too bad the contents of my heart are invisible to him.  He's still bearing the scars of our past.

I pray for the day he turns to me and says, "Yes, I love you too," but so far I'm sending out empty prayers.

I wonder if he will ever love me again?  Is it worth the wait to find out, or should I just accept the facts and get over him?
