My List of Must Haves In a Man
First of all I don't want to sound concieted at all. It was through my bad experiences with men that led me to make a list of must haves in a man. I finally learned to love myself enough to learn that I deserve more than just an average ordinary bum that doesnt work and abuses me. Soooooooo, after years of being a single mom, here's what I came up with as a list of what I wanted in a man:
(and it had to come from God, because I didn't want to screw things up again, lol)
1. RESPECT ME!
2. Put ME first above anyone else
3. Treat me like a queen.
4. No alcoholics.
5. No drug addicts.
6. Willing to accept my children.
7. Love me unconditionally
8. Work and support a family without being lazy.
9. Be there for his family!
10. Always communicate, and be kind!
Well I got it all, plus more. Not bragging but the sole reason why I got all in a man plus more is because of my faith in God and willingness to let Him choose who was right for me, not my own desires that are selfish human ones. I had a talk with God, and I told him to choose my man for me IF he wants me to have one. If not, that was ok too as I was fine with being alone. I told God I wasnt looking for anyone as I relied on Him, and if He wanted me to have a man he would bring him to my front door.
About a year later my door bell rings, its my future husband, whom I've known most of my life. He showed up, and basically never left. I tried to deny him and didnt want to date him but he kept telling me that God sent him there to take care of me, and thats what he's going to do. Boy did I feel like he was full of bull. After about a month of him nagging I went out with him and sparks flew, on July 4th I'll never forget! He told me he loved me and he'll never let me go.
We have 6 children and ten yrs later we are still as we were in the beginning. We completely put our trust in the Lord.
God doesn't fail you if you let him into your heart, he will give you the desires you want. I got more than I ever expected!
My man waits on me hand and foot. He is an excellent father that loves all his children, he raised my other two as his own, AS a teen! Yes he is ten yrs younger and we started out when he was 19. He makes an excellent living ~ and I don't have to work, I quit my job a few years ago. What a blessing it is to have such a good man that is here for me always. I love him as I love the Lord, and nothing could ever change that! Sparks still fly when we are together :)
Oh yeah! He does all the cooking!!! He is THE master CHEF!
