Valentine’s Day Crash

As much as I hate to admit it, I thought about “being in love” today. I really had no choice in the matter. You see, I had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR girls make moves on me today. Thus, even though I was trying hard to not think about love, I did.

First off, I received a handmade card from a lady who I work with. It was a very cute and well-made card; it had a light pink textured card stock with rounded corners, a darker pink piece of paper with light pink hearts inset, a large offset glittery heart in the upper left hand corner slightly hanging off the edge of the card, and a flower in the bottom right corner with a clear half-bead in the middle. The inside of the card read, “Hugs & Kisses (heart) XOXO,” and contained a brief and friendly message.

Next, a precious four year old girl wished me a “Happy Valentine’s Day” as she handed me a red, cherry Starburst.

Then, a darling 20 year old girl gave me a huge Godiva chocolate covered strawberry.

And the icing on the cake was when I stopped by Walgreen’s on the way home to get some more allergy meds. A gorgeous girl named Kylie was helping me. Kylie, by the way, bears an awful close resemblance to Lacey Chabert of Party of Five fame. Anyway, she began asking me questions about Valentine’s Day and girls in my life. She acted like she was astounded that I didn’t have a “special someone” to lavishly bestow gifts and love upon. She mentioned multiple times how nice I looked as a bald guy. And just as I was about to ask for her number I learned that she was a student at a local high school.

So, by the end of the day today I realized that I am considered to be both sexy and attractive by woman of all ages! In many ways it feels really good to think about all of the girls who have shown interest in me over the years – some of whom where drop-dead gorgeous! But just as I started feeling like I was on top of the world I came crashing back down with one realization… the perfect girl that God has made for me isn’t with me.

  1. Brian. One thing I’m curious about ? Exactly what sign are you looking to see when you finally meet the right lady ?
    Now granted, the 4 year old and the high school student are off limits for more then acquaintance mode. But to be real honest here, when I read your post today, I was reminded of the story about the old woman in the flood. The Lord will provide. Pickup comes down the road through the water. Grany, come with us. NO. The Lord will provide. Pickup leaves. Water rises. Grany is now on the second floor. Boat comes by. Granny, come get in the boat. No, the Lord will provide. Boat leaves. Water rises, Granny is now on the roof. Helicopter comes over, Granny, grab the rope and we’ll pull you in. NO. The Lord will provide. helicopter leaves. Water rises. Granny drowns. At the gates, Granny is complaining. Lord, You told me you would provide for me and yet I still drowned. What’s the deal ? Lord replies, Granny, I sent you a pickup, a boat and a helicopter. What more did you want ?

    Old story, moral of the story is well known. God answers prayer. We may not like the answer we get at the time. We may not even understand the answer we get at the time, but God always answers in some manner. Not saying jump at everything / everyone that comes along, you certainly know better then that, but, make sure your not missing out on something special because your not looking in the right place or over looking someone that God has placed in your path.

    I met my wife when I was 28 years old. We dated for 1 1/2 years and we married just a couple of weeks before I turned 30. Waiting for her, and waiting till then, was the best possible thing I could have done. But I probably would not have seen this if I had not been down the wrong path with the wrong girl a couple of times before. Remember that sometimes God uses the Missouri mule method of teaching. Sometimes he hits us with a 2×4 first, to make sure he has our attention. lol.

    She’s out there Brian. She may not even know it yet, but she’s there, and looking for a sappy, bald, romantic. It’ll be worth the wait.

    Happy Valentines Day.
