The Old Lady In The Moon :)

Love eventually will find its way – Susy Pujiro

When I was little, my mother would tell me bedtime stories.  One of the many stories she told me was about the old lady in the moon.  Whenever it was full moon, she would point to the moon and told me there was an old lady living in the moon.  Her job was to tie red string on people’s ankles who supposed to be married but if they go and marry someone else. The string is still there, and eventually they will find each other and marry 🙂

As I grew up, I forgot about the story of the old lady in the moon.  I got married to the love of my life and I thought it would be till death do us part but that was not the case.  What I learned in my journey of love, is that love doesn’t change, meaning of marriage doesn’t change, the vow doesn’t change but people change.  We can not choose to fall in love, we just fall because love is like wind, you don’t know where it comes from but you can feel it touching you.  At any moment, we can choose to fall out of love because we have a change in heart.

I was reminded of the story while I was talking to my friend about relationship 🙂  Something awakened inside my heart that gives me hope.  Yes, I married the love of my life but was he the one with the same red string in his ankle as mine..?

Well.. life definitely is interesting and here I am later in life being reminded of the story that I heard when I was a little girl.  I have hope that the man who has the same red string on his ankle as mine is out there, looking for me and when he finds me.  I will know it in my heart that he is the one 🙂

  1. Susy,

    I pray that you find this man that you are connected to and have everlasting and unquestionable love together.
    For someone that unselfishly does so much for so many, you if anyone more than deserve it. May God bless you and show you the path sweet friend 🙂

  2. I never heard this saying before and it got me to thinking about the string being attached to the person you are suppose to marry. Through my searching of answers people come into your life and for me its still unclear why. Was it fate, coincidence or just plain friendship?. I haven’t figured it out yet. Sometimes a person is still connected to the person that they were married to for so long and they just can’t break that string because they are praying and hoping that it will be brought back to them. and some people just have to have that sudden attraction to the person they are looking for and comparing him or her to what they had. I guess for me the string to the moon was never there or attached to anyone. I look at relationships differently because each person and each situation is different. Nobody is made the same. I am unique and I walk my own path. So if your still tied to the past and can’t cut the string than in my opinion you will never find the true happiness for your life. You can’t force marriage, love or even friendship. The secret I am finding out about my journey is love with all your heart when people come into your life but also be very careful how the heart is handled.

    • I think you read the story differently 🙂 the story is about the red string was tied on the ankles of the people that supposed to marry. Sometimes in your life, you find that person with the same string right away, and sometimes he/she may come later in life, because if you are meant for each other.. eventually love find its way home :). In your answer, I would say, you are talking about someone who can’t let go of his/her past and still hangs on to the hope that his/her spouse/lover would come back. If that is what you meant, then it’s not because of the red string, but because that person can’t move on. Relationship and love are the hardest to dissect where it’s going to fall or go, because love should be felt in the heart. Things happen in life that we can’t control. If we always look at the past which is behind us, we can never move forward or see what is in front of us. I believe when we go through heartache because of love and we can let go and embrace what is in front of us, it’s living. There is a saying “if you love something , let it go, if it comes back to you, it belongs to you”. It takes a lot of courage and love to let go something you love and take the chance of it not coming back.. but life and love worth the risk 🙂

  3. Yeah I read it differently, and letting go isn’t as easy as people think so thanks for clearing this up for me… lol!!!!!!!!!!… that’s why we all think differently… :). Never thought of the string and moon thing before and it’s kinda different so to speak.. As far as heartache, I’ve let it go. In 2 weeks or so I will be moving to a brand new place ( scary to think but excited at the same time ) I will close many chapters to my life because it’s a new beginning for me.

    • When you let go, the new doors of opportunities will open before you and just step in.. even though you don’t know what it is yet, it’s the new beginning that you should be excited 🙂 Don’t hang on to a lifeless and loveless relationship because it makes you old faster and you die inside and it will show in every way 🙂 Life is worth living to the fullest with its twists and turns, mountain highs and valley lows. Love yourself first, then everything else will follow 🙂
