Life ... *big sigh*

March 16th, 2014 at 11:38 am

Its been a series of ups and downs. My best friend and brother are both single, and their dating woes happen to coincide at the same time. It does make me tired, especially when I haven't much to contribute. I did give my opinion on best friend's situation (new relationship/difficulties). DH pointed out that I was completely wrong and there are tons of red flags. So I let her know what DH's views were, she thanked me for caring enough to pass on the male's perspective, and ultimately what she does is up to her. Brother is newly single and on eharmony and looking for "the" one in earnest, but is there really just one?

I am thankful for two new babies: one friend from church had baby #5 (in seven years - that's me and my spacing so I'm rather nostalgic about the whole thing). It was a girl named Alice (who joins Lucy, Mae, Frankie, and Vincent). And my xSIL (brother's xwife) just had baby boy #2 Myles, who joins Wesley. And another friend is due this week.

Saw the show yesterday, Heartbeat of Home. By the creators of Riverdance. Just loved it. And my girls are inspired and love to dance. And so all in all, well worth the money. We went out to eat afterward as a treat. I'm not stressing so much about money that one meal out will frazzle me. Was happy to see that tenant paid an additional $75, so I'm still ahead.

We're having a big group over for dinner next Saturday (new pastor, associate pastor, two families were friends with, and I invited my favorite friend from church who makes things fun!) so my goal for the week is to clean the house/organize the basement/plan the menu, etc.

So, it's going with the flow, and wishing everyone peace and good days.

    New babies are always new hope, aren't they?

    You've been a great friend/sister....it does take energy sometimes! Glad you enjoyed the show with your girls!

    I am quite sure there are any number of people who can make each of us happy. The hard part is recognizing them when they come along.

    Ah, being single myself, yeah, I know that pain haha. I am also glad that you were willing to pass along the male perspective. Right or wrong, agree or disagree, all these things help someone become more informed.

    As for the idea of, "the one", I am of the opinion that it is easiest to not worry about looking for that perfect soul mate, and simply enjoy people's company when you cross paths with them. Whether it is nothing more than a friendly buddy, a good long-term friend, or a soul mate, whatever it is, when people cross paths, I think it's best to just be happy with the people you're with and not have any expectations about whether or not it will work out. If it does, that's great, but if not, then let's just part ways amicably and move on with our lives.
