Hello, all my lovely followers! I love each and everyone of you.
I started blogging almost two months ago. It has been so rewarding, inspirational, and a source of happiness for me. I owe that all to y'all! This is the first Valentine's Day in some time that I have been single, yet I am not without lots of love.
I have learned through the years that this day is about sharing love with everyone in your life not just the significant other in your life. Heather and I have a special roommate date planned tonight to express our love for each other. It will include dinner at home, a fro yo trip for free V-day toppings, and possibly topped off with a $10 bottle of champagne from our favorite bar, Midtown.
On this day of love, it is hard not to think about that certain someone you would like in your life. I don't know all the traits that I want that person to have, but I do know the things that I don't want to see in that person. I saw this picture the other day. And, it got me thinking, what would I choose...
Of course, everyone would saw good looking. I mean who is going to say I want to date someone ugly! Everyone has different taste anyway...It is all in the eyes of the
beerholder be holder.
But, what about the other two? Do I want someone who is in check with all of his emotions or someone I can carry on a philosophical debate with? After some pondering, I decided that he needed to be intelligent because then he would be smarter enough to know that I am always right. Furthermore, he would needs to have a sense of humor that matches mine. If not, we would flop in a heartbeat. Finally, he has to be supportive of my dreams and goals. Everything else compromisable.
I was given some great relationship many years ago by one of my youth pastors. He told me that I need to pray for my future husband. Not in the sense that I should pray for God to give me a boyfriend/relationship. But, that I should pray for him as a person - that he be raised in a Christian home, that his mother taught him proper manners and behavior, that his father taught how to treat a lady and to be a gentleman, that he learned to love faithfully.
For any of you that are single, I hope this advice helps you. It is something I think about on a regular basis. For those that are in relationships, I hope this is true for you relationship and that your love grows strong on this Valentine's Day.
