Someone told me that the woman described in Brad Paisley's song "She's Everything" could be me. I consider this quite a compliment. Regardless of whether I DO share the same characteristics as the woman in the song, I want the kind of love that the song describes; I want a man who will genuinely feel that way about me, not just tell me he does to impress me or the church folks or his friends & their ladies. To be honest, I am beginning to doubt that that kind of love & that kind of man exist, but I won't settle for less--I've learned the hard way that there are things far worse than being single. I am happy with my life as it is, but I do yearn for someone to walk with me through the rest of my life & cherish along with me the memories we make. Is that you?
