oh, it is love.

i know valentine's day was a little while ago, but it has still been on my mind. during this time it is especially hard to think that God has a great love story ready for me, and in his perfect and unfailing timing, that will unfold. while this is something i think about, i wasn't really sad this singles awareness day. no, i didn't have someone to bring me roses (but something edible is preferred), or take me out to a fancy dinner (i actually would rather prefer something casual, i'm not a huge fan of vday anyway b/c it is just a ploy to get people to spend money on dumb things telling the people they love they love them even though they should be doing that everyday). but i'm ok with that. i spent valentine's watching a movie with my parents, and my brother bought me golden spoon.
i am so lucky to have my family. my brothers are turning into amazing guys (not men yet, but soon), and since we've grown up, we've been able to decrease out arguing and attempts to annoy the crap out of each other and have been able to become friends. i love them. my parents are amazing people and i am so lucky to have ones that still are in love with each other after all these years. i am also so lucky of how supportive of me, and their faith in me to make my own decisions, and of how they do not judge me, but they are so loving and fun to hang out with. i can only hope i am half the parent that mine are.
i am also incredibly lucky to have my bffls at college. i really and honestly don't know what i would do without them. we support each other through everything, rate boys' hotness, encourage each other in our faith, and would do anything for each other. they know every mood i have even when i don't say anything, mostly because i am horrible at concealing my feelings. but they are the best.
and most of all, i am so beyond lucky to have a Savior whose grace and love is neverending. i don't want to think where i would be without it. i know that God has a perfect plan for me, and it gives me great comfort to know that whatever happens is for his glory. he sees the present, but he also sees the future, so i can know that he has it all under control.
this is becoming really long, but the point of this rambling thing is that, yeah, i don't have a boyfriend. yes, i would like to have one eventually. but in the meantime, i am able to work on becoming the woman my future husband, my friends, my family, and my God deserve. i already have so much love in my life, and for that i am so grateful. i just love love.

Although I loved this entry, I wasn't as crazy about the picture. I seem to remember something about deleting it, or was that just hopeful thinking on my part??
