That's amore

So I had great plans on creating a Valentine's Day post, but this past week I was vacationing and far away from any computers. Consequently, here is my (slightly late) post on love.

Well, I don't know about you, but when this time of years comes around, I always end up rather restless and moony. Sitting amidst a mound of school books and with a foot of snow surrounding the house, the promise of Spring is both alluring and distracting. And if your Prince Charming is still nowhere in sight, this particular holiday seems to serve only as a reminder of how alone you really are. Some put a bold face on and declare how happy they are to be single and free, but if you're anything like me there is that little voice in the back of your head that whispers, "Just how long until I can celebrate with my soul mate?"

So what do I do to combat the Valentine's day blues? First of all, I pray for my future husband. Sure I don't know who or where he is, but God does. And in doing this I feel a connection with my future fellow, whoever he might be. Secondly, I surround myself with my family. When that special someone sweeps you off your feet, you won't be with your family any more. Odds are you will spend far more Valentine days with your husband then you will with your present family. So this is a special time to cherish.

I heard a beautiful song while traveling to Virginia. Country singer Josh Turner's smooth voice sang this touching piece. It is about husband and wife's journey in waiting to find true love........


Baby, I know you've been waiting patiently
For a man to give you all that you need
And love you like he should
Stickin' to your guns
Lookin' for the right one
Just somebody who treats you good
It took me a while
But, I got here as fast as I could

I ran full speed ahead without stopping to rest
Not knowing where I was headed to
Now that I'm here, it's perfectly clear
That I was making my way to you
I can't believe how long it took
But I got here as fast as I could

I've ended up on at least 100 dead end roads
Where my heart and I just wound up broke, lost and misunderstood
I tried to rush finding true love
It didn't pan out like I thought it would
It took me sometime but I got here as fast as I could

I ran full speed ahead without stopping to rest
Not knowing where I was headed to
Now that I'm here, it's perfectly clear
That I was making my way to you
I can't believe how long it took
But I got here as fast as I could

Yeah, I got here as fast as I could
