This has been SUCH an eye-opening weekend for me. I have to admit that I was in a less than happy mood last week about a lot of things. That that really do not matter in the large scheme of things.
The point is, when you've got good people in your life, whether that be by friendship, family, or relationship, you need to cherish every single moment with those people. It can all be taken away in a heartbeat.
A group of us girls went and watched The Vow Sunday afternoon. Can we say hooooooooooooooooooooooot... Channing Tatum, I mean :) But it really was a good movie. I enjoyed it and was very happy with what it done for me, personally. I've been battling some ugly thoughts in my mind. I think at some point every girl does that to themselves, but what I have learned from the last week is to stop and smell the roses rather than staying bound up with fear and anger.
I've been hard to deal with lately (Ask B if you don't believe me) but it has all came to a stop. It was just a very hard week and I think my emotions and hormonal issues just got the best of me and I let it come into my life.
I was mean to B and I hate myself for that, but it's part of a learning experience. I'm just thankful to have a man that allows me to go nuts and still want to be with me at the end of it. I've said it a million times before and I will again, he is just unlike any man I've ever known. God sure knew what he was doing when he placed this gorgeous man in my life.
And then last night I went and listend to Ron Price speak at church. For those of you who don't know who that is, check out this link to help catch you up. First of all, all I can tell you is wow. The courage it must have took to stand before a crowd as large as we had there last night must have been frightening. But he took that stand and he spoke on his wife's behalf. I never knew her personally, nor him, but you could feel the love he had for his wife just in his words.
He discussed the events of that night and how life has changed since then and it just let me to thinking a lot about how I've acted lately too. And I think the thing that really stood out to me was him mentioning Valentine's Day approaching and how he wouldn't be able to see his Valentine this year.
What if tonight, tomorrow, this very next minute, was your last moments alive with those you love- would they know it? To me I can apply it to be B and me. We didn't find each other early in life, we are 27 and 28 years old. We have lost a good part of our lives that could have been spent together and while yes I know that all too happened for a reason. It just means that we have to make the most of the time we DO have together. The little fights over things that don't matter the next day, the taking our anger out on each other, the past creeping its way into our current lives. It all is just non-sense.
What we need to do is love one another, pray for one another, and be there for the good times AND the bad, but treat each other with respect and handle the issues that will arise and continue the good relationship we have.
Like I said, I had a bad week last week and it really took a toll on me more than I think I let anyone know. But that's the past. I needed to see that movie and hear Ron speak. It's all in God's timing for us to see and hear things and it was no accident for either of those and me yesterday.
So, ladies, just take a minute and think it over. If you lost your Valentine right now, would you have regrets?
