I have a confession. Ok, not really a confession because just about everyone who actually knows me knows it and I am not ashamed of it, but....
I have an obsession, of sorts, with Winnie the Pooh! Yes, go ahead and laugh, but seriously, I kind of like him a lot (ok, not as much as Cowboys, but that is a different story).
So my car has a little Winnie the Pooh hanging on the mirror and he basically is my friend that accompanies me on all my road trips and road adventures of getting lost (happens a lot).
So, whether you like it or not this post is Winnie the Pooh quotes. I probably just scared away half my readers, but you know if you can't put up with my Winnie the Pooh obsession for just one day than that is really just too bad. Be thankful I did not decide to do a Seven Brides for Seven Brothers post instead. I would understand if you left me after that. That would be the testing of whether we are true friends or not, but this time I am just sticking with Winnie the Pooh. ;)
We met about three years ago. The exact details of our very first meeting I don't remember very well because it wasn't exactly love at first sight for either one of us. He was a young happy freshman while I was a sad despondent old junior.
It wasn't too long before we became friends though. He started serving in the kitchen with me, and became a sweet fragrance of joy and youth in my weary sad drained life.
It seems that the kitchen is a fitting place for two people to fall in love.
I am sure he will never forget the many gifts of "love" I gave him as a dishwasher. Yes, I brought him so many dishes which I pointedly told him was "from the bottom of my heart...... where all the dirt lies." What could get more romantic than that? Right?!?!?!
So we became friends. We played pranks. We did parties. We ate food. And we started sharing each others coffee drinks. (gross!) And I became madly in love with him…
I wouldn't change anything
From the laughter to the tears.
Every little memory counts,
Every little memory makes
A year to remember.
Sledding with my sisters,
Baking sweet aroma and enjoying every bite.
Drawing with children
Or snuggling a sleeping little one
On my shoulder.
Fellowship with friends around
A crowded table.
Learning, and reading,
And drinking coffee to stay awake.
Flowers of sunshine on sick days.
A brothers wedding.
More sunshine for a weary heart.
The skies that radiate the glory of God
And proclaim his promises and love
From day to day.
Friends to hold me tight when tears fall fast.
Waiting on God's will.
Learning to trust him more.
Friends getting married.
A sister's wedding too.
Working hard out doors
And getting dirty.
Working along side my best friend.
Courting the man of my dreams.
Learning to be loved
And to love and to live in grace.
A sweet friend and a waffle date.
Daisies and dandelions
And Black-eyed Susan's.
Fragrance of love and…
