Good morning my sweet readers!

“I’m not saying that at some point love isn’t staying up until 2am phone calls or stealing kisses when you least expect it, or instantly falling for each other’s favorite songs because it is, or at least that’s what the lead up to it feels like, but real love, is so much more. It’s going out at 12am to get something to eat for your wife who can’t get out of bed, it’s listening to them as they explode with vulnerability on your living room couch talking about how they were only so young when they’re parents passed on. it’s remembering how someone likes their coffee in the morning without asking—without ever asking, it’s visiting someone in the hospital knowing the last thing you want to do is see them in that condition, it’s wanting to be with that person despite despite everything, the future, the past, and everything in between, it’s the intimate things that you don’t even realize involve such intimacy, but they do, in secret, like the pinky promises you two made behind your back, to love one another for always, in the time you thought you were in love, when you were actually just on your way to it.”
Ted: Okay, I’m going to say something out loud that I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately. What you and Tony have, what I thought for a second you and I had, what I know that Marshall and Lily have… I want that. I do. I keep waiting for it to happen, and waiting for it to happen, and… I guess I’m just tired of waiting. And that is all I’m going to say on that subject.
Stella: You know how I talked my way out of a speeding ticket?
Stella: I was heading upstate with my parents, I was doing 90 on the country roads, and I got pulled over. So this cop, gets out of his car, swaggers over and he says, ‘Lady, I’ve been waiting for you all day.’ And I said, ‘Sorry Officer, I got here as fast as I could!’
Ted: For real?
Stella: No, it’s just a joke. [pause] I know that you’re tired of waiting. And you may have to wait a little while more but, she’s on her way, Ted. And she’s getting here, as fast as she can.
I read this scene from how I met your mother when I am worried that HE won't be coming but then I remember he's on his way and he's getting here as fast as he can! I also like to plan our wedding while I wait. I love that dress above!!!

So I was talking to this guy and I started liking him, then he stopped talking. He's txted me twice since then but only the once and each time its like a small glimmer of hope that makes me sad again.
But I realized he was just a small stepping stone to a much bigger plan for my life. He helped me realize that I can share stuff I've been scared to with no judgement. He made me realize I could meet someone on a dating site.
He also helped me get over someone I've was fighting all year long not to like.
But I think the most biggest grandest greatest thing of all is he was this stepping stone that led me down a path to find the one person that I will end up with! Who would never just stop talking to me, who would never have another girl on the side.
and yes I realize there are some things that I am in fault with to, maybe I should of listened more, or compromised more, but see again thats just another reason maybe I needed him so that I can learn this things so I don't mess it up when the one that really matters comes into my life!

I just found this video over at little reminders of love (one of my favorite blogs to read)
I normally find the ah inspiring this things to keep me going or help me be more creative when I read blogs, Sadly I haven't been doing it as much lately and seem to be doing it more when I'm really blue.
This video no doubt would of been added to the list, but....I had already seen it. It was February of this year and the start of the new semester at the middle school. Some classes changed for kids like electives and I have to sub that day. I after figured out the details of where I was going learned I would be going to an electronics class, okay.
Well it was all 7th and 8th grade boys! The teacher that manly man type who worked construction and well was now teaching electronics, and here I was like "wow I am the only female in here" and very female that day I had on you know a dress and tights and teacher like shoes. I had to try to climb very lady like onto the stool!
The teacher played a video, and well it was this video above. I was so into watching the video thinking "wow how great is this" but then the student with the short attention span I was there with started asking me life questions and then I realized no one was watching and then I laughed because its like where am I watching this video?
I of course shared with all my other staff members this story throughout the day.
That class turned out to be a crazy one where the teacher cared less about rules. You'd walk in and he'd be giving a lecture and boys would be standing on the tables and dancing, and they would always talk about crude middle school boy things of course. It was like this all year. which is like how am I suppose to be here making this student pay attention when no one is. Even if wood shop they didn't even follow the rules!
well one day I went in and these boys were throwing around a Frisbee and I walked over and actually got my student to work, yay! Then I got conked on the head with said frisbee by a kid with one broken arm and had to go get an ice pack.
The vice principal went into to talk to them all but I never had to return to the class again but I don't think I'll ever forget that first day!
