here I am

It's a funny thing being alone.
I don't really ever mind it...most of the time.
I have always said that I work better alone.
For the most part, that stands true to this day.

I have been thinking though; I don't want to be old and alone.
I just don't.
I want to give Avery a sibling(s).
I want a man to stand by my side and go through life with me.

My parents will have been married for 30 years this June.
30 years!

They had 3 children and now one grandchild.
Life is sweet for them.

My parents are still in love with each other.
I admire that.
I also admire that my parents are still very affectionate towards each other...even in front of us or company.
And you know, what is there to be ashamed of?
July, 2009
I grew up knowing that no matter what, my parents love each other and they are not afraid to show it.
I want a love like that.
I want to show Avery a love like that.
Although I can't imagine what kind of man I will end up with, I imagine that he's a good man.
I would like a man that shares the same values as I do: peace, love, faith, and contentment.
I NEED a man who loves to just hang out at home sometimes where it's warm, comfortable, and safe.
I NEED a man who desires adventure, loves time at the lake, and lives for summertime.

I NEED a man who has a heart for family, because, let's face it, family is my everything.

I don't feel like that is too much to ask.

It's only hard because I am a mother, too.
It's a scary thing for most men to get involved in...I guess.
But come on...What's so scary about this pair?

I feel as if I should say all of this just to say that I will be patient.
I will be picky.

I just need someone who wants to be a part of my life.
And let's face it, it's a sweet, sweet life.

What a great post. I love that there are so many pictures of your brothers and that you use a picture of them as an example of what you want (the adventurous side). I so hope and pray my daughter looks to her brothers and dad as examples for what she wants in a husband.

Great post!
