A few weeks ago I picked these up at Forever 21...under six dollars. Not. Even. Kidding.
Although I'm a Christian, it's always irked me a little that the Bible frequently talks to men about good women, how much they are worth...but I've never seen a passage that states the worth of a good man. Correct me if I'm wrong, but what's up with that? If I could make an addition to the advice offered in the Good Book, it would be this:
"Blessed is the woman who finds a warm-hearted man, for he is worth far more than gold."
I've dated nice guys, and I've dated absolute frogs. (1st half of 2010: The year of the frogs.) But the warm-hearted men have been few. Someone who is mature enough to have kindness, generosity and sympathy in spades. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I'm with a warm-hearted, mature man who is open to a future together, whatever that brings. Someone who...
...listens to my silly dreams...and dreams with me.
...never forgets to tell me good morning and sweet dreams, although he's 9 hours ahead of me.
...tells me daily that i can do anything i set my mind to.
...pushes me when i believe i cannot.
...can write one heck of a love letter.
...remembers the little things.
...encourages me to eat cake, because he doesn't care about my pants size.
...reminds me that my insecurities are crazy.
...makes my heart feel full, even from 6,000 miles away.
That type of man? Definitely worth more than gold. I love my gold jewelry, but I'd choose that man over a glitzy bangle any day. :)
