Adam Inspires Story

> Dear Gloria,
> Below is my entry into the 'Adam Inspires' contest. I hope it's OK that it's in letter form, written to that wonderful human being, Adam Lambert. Thanks for providing the opportunity for us to share how he's changed our lives. 


Dear Adam, 

 When I thought I had nothing in my life, you were there. Let me explain. I’m a mum of two, in my forties, living thousands of miles
> away from my own family. I share a house with my ex-husband in his home country so that we can raise our two children together.

 It’s tough and not how I thought my life would be. Though I have friends here, I often felt alone and to be honest, unable to cope.  Watching my husband get on with his life and go on as if I meant nothing was often more  than I could bear.  Needing medication just to be able to function and control the emotional rollercoaster, I struggled through each day trying my best to take care of the kids and keep my head above water. 

And then, I saw you on American Idol, which I was following half halfheartedly, there you were, singing Ring Of Fire.  Simon called it indulgent rubbish, I thought it was the best thing I’d ever seen.

 Those crystal blue eyes, looking seductively into the camera, that smile and OMG, that voice. I was HOOKED, completely, immediately. It sounds silly, but it was like you were sent to cheer me up, to bring me out of the huge funk I’d let myself get into. 

 I genuinely felt happy for the first time in so long. As I learned more about you and heard speak in interviews, I realized that there was more to you than just the eyeliner and the voice. You were smart, honest, open and proud.  I loved your graciousness and that you seemed to have a good time wherever you were.

 You became my star in a very dark sky and as each week passed, the children and I would watch to see what you would do next – and I’d be thrilled by it. The lonely nights were no more as I spent time online watching your videos and listening to your interviews. 

I couldn’t believe how good you were – your voice is beyond amazing. I once heard someone say that you are hiding a third lung in there – I think it must be true.  As the AI journey came to an end and the tour started we got to see more of the wonderful performer that you are. 

Stunning, sexy, beyond words. Even though I am so far away, your openness makes us (fans) feel connected to you somehow. Then your album FYE was released and it blew me away. I love every song, but my favourite is AFTERMATH. What an anthem that is! You and that song, let me know that if my little boy grows up and is different from his friends, then it’s still going to be OK.

 And for myself, it’s OK to be myself; to like what I like. You have to do what your heart tells you is right and seeing you being comfortable in your own skin gave me the strength and courage to be comfortable  in mine. And I know that from your influence, I’ll be able to support my son when he gets older in whatever way he needs. 

 You’ve opened my eyes Adam Lambert. Seriously, you’ve made me want to listen to music again, you make me want to dance. My dream came true when I travelled to Kuala Lumpur to see you in concert. I went just to be able to see you with my own eyes, to know that you are real. I shopped, glammed, wore glitter and had the time of my life.

You’ve brought an element into my life that I never thought possible because I feel SO GOOD when I hear you sing. My heart soars and because I’m happier, my kids are happier. 

So thank you Adam Lambert, you’ve made me happier than any man in my life ever has. I’ll be a fan forever. 

 Hugs, Jo.

Thanks so much for your great letter, Jo! AQD

Adam Lambert 101: An introduction

Alice said: Gloria, thanks for creating this Sauli site. Adam’s heart eyes with Sauli tell the whole story. I love them together. They seem so right for each other, far beyond the fascinating fashion coincidences. Adam said this time he’s looking for someone who could take care of him this time, with so much going on in his life. Enter Sauli. Delightfully calm and unphased by all the madness that surrounds Adam, he seems to offer Adam peace, trust, support, and a refreshing love that comes from a good, unneedy place. Aside from an obvious attraction, they are good together because both are artists with strong support from family and friends, wry sense of humor, gift of gab, sunshiny personality, love of dance, compassion, kindness, humility, et al. Sauli and Adam are kindred spirits. Thank you Universe for bringing them together. I hope they always want each other as much as they do now. Adam, we know why your heart is full and we are overjoyed by your bliss.
