Valentine's Day

I try to enjoy this day even though it's not a favorite day of mine. I know that most couples (especially married couples) don't really do anything special, but for us single people, it's a reminder that we are alone. I have some great friends who are girls and we are going to celebrate our "Anti-Valentine's Day" on Saturday. My friend Mary and I did this a few years ago. Last year, we were heading to Charleston to pick up dresses for a friends wedding, and after we finished in Charleston, WV we came back through Huntington and had dinner and went to see "He's Just Not That Into You." It was a good movie and a reminder that if the guy isn't treating you in a way of showing you that you are important to him it's just not worth our time.

I have been in a few relationships, but honestly when I look back on them, I really haven't found that special guy. I'm thankful that I can say I never let the right guy get away. It's weird because I'm turning 40 this year and I'm still single. I really don't know if there is a special guy I will be with...or if I will be single until Jesus comes back. I know there will be people reading this saying, "oh, you will find someone." And they may be right, but maybe it's God's will for me to be single...and if it is I really don't want to settle for a guy just because he's nice to me.

Last year, I made a "wish list." I'm praying for the guy that I'm wishing for...he may be getting a fine tuning by God, or he may really just not be out there...but I believe if he is, God will show me I've found him.

Pray that I will be patient during this time...that I will enjoy my singleness, because I do understand that relationships are about compromising and I will not always get my way. Right now I want to soak up my life experiences, but it would be nice to have that special guy to grow old with...

Until next time...
