I've been slowly working my way through Shania Twain's incredible memoir "From This Moment On", and well first of all I LOVE her and am completely inspired by her more than ever! There is a reason this woman has been my idol since the 9th grade, and it's in this book.
She wrote something in here that really struck a chord with me for some reason. She was talking about emails her now husband used to send her to help her open up to loving again after her painful betrayal and divorce. I should note for those of you who don't know, her love story is a strange twist of fate. Shania's closest friend and confidant went behind her back and basically stole her husband. This woman was married with a child as well. Anyhow, Shania is now married to her ex best friend's ex husband. They basically just traded partners. Read her book to get the full story. It's amazing!
Back to my point, this is the quote:
"Love comes to those who still hope even though they've been disappointed, to those who still believe even though they've been betrayed, to those who still love even though they've been hurt before". - Unknown
For some reason, those words give me hope.
