Someone to Love

If you have someone in your life who you love and loves you back: whether it's a significant other or your spouse or domestic partner, you should consider yourself very lucky.

If you love that person, be sure that you tell them that you love them and that you appreciate them. Because it is not easy out here in singledom. The older you get, the more difficult it becomes to find that special person. You're dealing with many people who are having the same experience you are most of the time. If you're lucky, you'll find someone with the self-awareness to know that they are in that situation.

Finding someone who has that self-awareness is much harder than it sounds.

Many of you who are in a loving relationship surely have your ups and downs, quirks to deal with, and maybe some things about your relationship that just are what they are. Having the wisdom to work through those things is one of the wonders of that relationship - that you can grow together. No it's not easy, and it takes a lot of effort, but understand that you are with someone who loves you. And regardless of all that stupid stuff, your dumb ideas, the ding you put in the car, or how much you stink sometimes, they love you anyway.

That's blessed.

Don't pass up the opportunity to stop the routine and see what is in front of you. Things could be different. You might not have found that person. They are your shield and your solace in the face of an uncertain world.

I know from whence you speak, Phel. Every year, my hope is dimmed a little more, yet, still I hope. Don't lose faith. Easy to say, hard to do.

While a little sad, nicely put. Especially when you read the tragic stories as with what happened to Jennifer Bukosky and her family. Not only do I feel lucky I have my two girls in my life, I never take them for granted. At least I try not to. As with Jennifer's husband Steven, it can all be taken from you in an instant.

Phel:

Hang in there. It's hard to do, but it *is* possible. Your faith will get you through.

Ah Phel, no one as sweet and funny as you will ever be alone. I love you like crazy, love reading your posts, and find the "mysterious Phelony Jones" as interesting and entertaining as anyone out there.

As long as you have a love for the Lord Most High in your heart, you will never be alone.

Sometimes, it just takes the right place and time. Sometimes, it takes multiple failures. I was lucky enough to get both.
