Love…It’s a funny thing

Well I found a few quotes on LOVE today.


This one:


Do I love you because you’re beautiful, Or are you beautiful because I love you? ~Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Cinderella

and this one:

For you see, each day I love you more Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow. ~Rosemonde Gerard


I talk much about loving your neighbor, loving your friends and family. I don’t talk much about romantic love. I don’t talk about it becuase I am a romantic at heart and my DH is not. He is socially challenged and the thought of even watching a romatic comedy makes his skin crawl..mostly because he doesn’t understand the appeal.  I am such a romantic at heart that I can watch the same cheesy romantic comedy 100 times..I will laugh at all the same parts, cry at all the same parts and my heart will grow at all the same parts…wishing that my life was like that….then the movie is over and …it’s back to reality. Which is this:

1. What’s for dinner?
2.  Is there gas in the tank..where’s the keys?

3. How much money is in the account?

4. where’s the remote?

5. What are we doing tomorrow?

6. What’s for dinner tomorrow..LOL

see a pattern?

It’s not to say that we don’t love eachother or anything…it’s just that we come from two different planets …and we have adapted to this plan..and to fill that void there are many movies on the market.

and this quote suits me perfectly because if you were on My first date with Rob you would have seen me fall three times.  I am not even kidding! By the third fall he tried to catch me and he just started laughing..LOL That should have been a sign to me then about how compassionate he is…

“You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover’s arms can only come later when you’re sure they won’t laugh if you trip.”  ~Jonathan Carroll, “Outside the Dog Museum”

You know how I am?..if he were to fall and trip..I would be worried about the medical bills that would be rolling in because of it..LOL! So I guess we make a perfect pair.

I will be at Zumba on Valentines night… celebrataing the “Love” day….and that is perfectly fine because that’s not practicial…and we seem to be more practical around here….That’s probably why I get to day dream about quilts all day…I get to be creative in my mind….so I can function in the everyday world. Big Dose of God’s love,Little dose of creativity, a romantic comedy here and there and a practical kind of love.

My boys…(Dh included) always make fun of my music choices….Most of the music I love? as you can already songs. The love songs by men who wrote these amazing songs talking about the woman of their dreams. Bruno mars song( it’s on my playlist) “Just the way you are”..yeah…who doesn’t want their guy singing that to them? My all time favorite MB song? “Everything:. I LOVE that song I have heard it 1001 times…I could listen to it 10000 times and I will still love it! His other song is “Haven’t met you yet” He is singing a song to the woman of his dreams that he hasn’t met and he makes all of these promises…to her. AWE! That gets me everytime. I try to explain to my boys that this is how they need to treat women..women LIKE this stuff…they need to be vulnerable ..heart felt and sentimental…..I will spare you all their responses..but I am hoping if I say it enough it will sink in somewhere…..I know most of my romantic inclinations are just fantasy …and the real world isn’t like that. ( just like I can’t picket chicken coops..and get voting rights taken from roosters) ….But I am so thankful that God at least gave me an imagination….so I can dream and create things in my mind….

Like the dream that I have a perfect family…I am raising 4 almost human boys that totally love and respect me each and every day…and that  they will grow up and go to college get respectable girls to marry and give me loads of grandkids that will be well behaved…smart children. LOL

In that same dream I have 2 girls that will be self respecting….ladies with manners….and not need a man in their lives because they will be well educated and self sufficient and marry nice self suffecient respectable men..and they can have children if they choose to….LOL.

Ahhh to dream.

The boys are dream is over gotta go….what do you know?

    Oh C, I also am a romantic…husband is sort of (he always says he loves me and always buys presents ) but as for the lovey dovey stuff I would love …nada…so like you say we compromise…we will start to a romantic movie and I see him gazing at a man movie and I give in and make him think that is what we would enjoy more and of course you can see the relief on his
    I love my music and my imagination and of course dreams then yea reality is what we have and it is good in it’s on way…can’t live on love alone…right? lol
    I feel somewhere along the way I rasied my girls to be so independent that they have all of the bad stuff from all of the young years we had so hard that now they don’t see any need for a man in thier lives..kinda sad. Oldest tried it for 20 years but think she is moving are grown and moving out and she says they have nothing left…makes me sad. Blessings T
