"Love is a many splendored thing...

... love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love."* :)

If you don't live under a rock or haven't been in a store for the past month, you know that next Tuesday is Valentine's Day. As usual, this will be a day of mixed emotions for me. On the one hand I am so so lucky because I get the chance to love so many people in my life. On the other hand, I am a single girl. I'm usually not anxious about the fact that I'm single, which is really a gift from God. But I will admit that as I approach 24 I'm starting to feel a little old.

However, when I get to thinking about how I "should" have a man by now, I am reminded of all of the dorky people I know who get married. If they can do it, so can I! And then I remember all of the fantastic single people I know and think, "they're smart, good looking, and holy... I'm in good company!"

Despite the moments of anxiousness, overall I trust God's good taste and sense of timing when it comes to finding the right dude for me. Til then, I'll just keep my eyes open. ;)

*Gold star for the person who can identify the quote!

"Christian" (Ewan McGregor) while attempting to seduce the accomplished prostitute Satin (Nicole Kidman) into "just one night" of free lovemaking. From Moulin Rouge of course.

You know, I like the movie, but when you just go and write the plot out like that for everyone to read... maybe I will post anonymously after all... Later, Ann!

missed it. Ach!

oh don't start that again
all you need is love
a girl has got to eat
all you need is love
she'll end up in the street
all you need is love, love...
love is just a game.
I was made for loving you baby, you were made for loving me
the only way of loving me baby is to bay a lovely fee
just one night, give me just one night
there's no way, cause you can't pay
in the name of love, one night in the name of love
you crazy full, I won't give into you,
Don't....leave me this way, I can't survive, without your sweet love, oh baby, don't leave me this way...
you would of thought people would have had enough of crazy love songs.
i look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no.

and on and on

hahah, well since I'm still single too, I'm hoping that puts me into the 'smart, good looking, and holy' category too. I'm glad to hear you're out of the hospital-- I look forward to hearing of your complete and speedy recovery! Take care, and keep us posted on what you decide to do next.
