Can’t Hurry Love

July 26, 2008

So I have been on vacation as mentioned previously and it gave me time to think. I ended up with 18 days off in a row. I love being a nurse and only took 6 work days off. I was burned out and was ready to go back. While on vacation I got time to relax and think. I spent alot of time reading, resting, listening to music, laying out on the beach, and playing in the ocean. When I get in one of my reflective moods I tend to listen to music and apply it to my life. I was sitting on the beach with my IPOD on shuffle and “Can’t Hurry Love” came on sung by the Dixie Chicks. I usually would have changed it but left it on since it had a nice beat. The lyrics made me think…….

I need love, love
To ease my mind
I need to find, find someone to call mine
But mama said

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

But how many heartaches
Must I stand before I find a love
To let me live again
Right now the only thing
That keeps me hangin’ on
When I feel my strength, yeah
It’s almost gone
I remember mama said:

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take

How long must I wait
How much more can I take
Before loneliness will cause my heart
Heart to break?

No I can’t bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that i, I can’t go on
These precious words keeps me hangin’ on
I remember mama said:

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

No, love, love, don’t come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
To hold me tight
I keep waiting
I keep on waiting
But it ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
But mama said:

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take

Just recently I broke up with my boyfriend. Don’t get me wrong he was a great guy just not the guy for me. We dated for 4 months and that is a record for me. I am from a divorced family and have committment issues but am working through them. While driving down to the beach we passed Irmo, he was from Irmo. Memories of driving down to meet his parents. While on vacation I saw a tennis charm. He was a tennis pro and introduced me to tennis. Oh how we store memories and good times in such a short time.

My homegroup is doing the Marriage by Design Series by Voddie Baucham. I have done this study before but God must have known that I needed to hear it again. Needed to hear that God loves me and wants to give me just what I need. Wants to give me just what I need. I also love how he teaches me through people. I learned in this relationship and grew and that is what is most important. Until prince charming comes along I am enjoying being 26 and single!!!

Sore Muscles and Hunger

July 23, 2008

So I am working on a post and I know I said it is coming. To give you a hint it is about relationships. I am just taking my time. Until then I am sitting here after going to the gym and thinking about how I want ice cream and popcorn. My choices are moose tracks and kettle corn. Oh and I went to the DMV today because my car taxes got messed up and I did not get my sticker. I got the new pretty SC tag. Doesn’t take much to make me happy!! Oh but I have to find a screw driver to get the old one off.  I will call my great neighbor. Did I mention how I love my neighborhood. Keep checking back I will be done soon.

Reasons I Love Vacation

July 21, 2008

First off. Sorry it has been so long since I have blogged. There may not even be any one out there. It has been so long that I had trouble with my password and had to reset it. So sad. While on vacation I tried to journal but it did not work. Thoughts were running through my head so I promise a good post soon. Until then….

When I go back to work on Thurday I will be off 18 days!! I needed it or I was going to go crazy. I have enjoyed the time off with the exception of my dad being sick. For those who know the situation, he is on the up swing and at a rehab hospital for therapy. So I wanted to list why I love vacation especially the beach with my family.

* Not wearing a watch and even forgetting what day it is.

* No computer I need to disconnect.

* Reading books. I read 3 while on vacation

* Time to think. My thoughts get deep and plentiful when alone but good to have them

* The beach = sun, sand, and my sister and nephew who are awesome!!!

* Road trip with my sister which is awesome!! This years car fiasco was switching drivers at a redlight.

* Fun times with my nephew. Flying a kite, frisbee and playing catch.

More to come its in the works.
