To be honest I didn’t know what to think about this on-line dating. My kids suggested I give it a try. It took me some time to complete this section cuz I didn't know what to write. I asked a close friend to give me some ideas.
She described me as a positive, up beat and out going individual. Kind of an old fashion, romantic. Don't know about all that but I do still think a guy should open the door for a women, send flowers for no apparent reason, send a text just saying “I was thinking about you”, or a phone call just to here her voice. I’m very spontaneous; it’s not uncommon to be talking about going to Hawaii on Thurs. afternoon and be on a plane Fri. morn. for a weekend trip. I enjoy getting away with that some one special.
I am really looking for a best friend. You know someone to spend time with, to share secrets with, to talk with, to pray with, to laugh with, to cry with, to hold hands with, walk with, to travel with, camp with (as long as its in a motor home), to sit on the beach at night and watch the waves come in with. Someone to cook dinner together with and chase each other around the kitchen and act goofy with then sit down to a candle lit dinner and maybe a glass of wine with. What I want is to find someone to hold my ladder while I climb it to hang the moon for her. Someone who understands grace and can extend it to me when I fail, cuz I will (at least once.....).
My best friend…. I guess that would be my Dad. I was named after him. He and I have worked together for as long as I can remember. I always went with him as I was growing up. He would let sit in his lap and drive the work trucks or put me on a tractor to drive or just show me how to do different things. He bought me my first set of tools and a pouch when I was only 3. As time passed I always wanted to be in business with him. He sent me to school to be an Architect. He now works for the company I founded 25 years ago and we spend most Friday nights together talking about our week, how various projects are going and what direction we are going next. My kids join us most of the time as we talk, plan and dream about the future.
Well all that may sound a little corny but I don't care. I know it will all make sense to that right Young Lady (young at heart).
