My Mama loves to tell people this story: When Mannie was about 6 years old she was laying on the kitchen floor reading the comics while I was doing the dishes. She looked up at me and over at her dad and said ” Mom, Dad I pity my future husband.” Um why is that doll. “Well because I am going to be a Bitch when i grow up, not a mean one, a good one.” We didn’t know whether to punish her for swearing or laugh. We laughed and well she is right, she is the good kind, she never backs down from anything and stands up for her self. Or as she says, I let my inner Ninja fly Mom.
To my future Husband:
Please understand that I am not your cookie cutter woman. Please know that I have done more living in 28 years than most people do in 100 years. I am fiercely independent and do not take no for an answer. I am stubborn and set in my ways, I know what I want and how to get it.
Some say I am damaged, that I am a little jaded and jagged around the edges. If we truly live our lives on the fly all of us become a little rough around the edges. Only those who don’t dare, try, or dream sail through with our scuffs. I like my scuffs they make me who I am and I am proud of them. Each one tells a story and those stories make me the woman I am today. They are a part of me and remind me of how far I have come.
Know that God saw something in me, that allowed him to save me. I am often reminded that only 1 out of 6 walks away from a PE. That I am living on my second chance and making each day worth it. I have faith that God has something amazing in store for me. Realize this and you will become a part of my mission. The mission: Is to spread Major Kung Fu around the world and to make it a little better for everyone.
I am caring, loyal, and deeply passionate. I will do anything for anyone. I would lay my life down with out a second thought, give the shirt of my back, and the meal on my plate to someone in need without question. We get back what we put into this world. So I choose to inject the world with kindness, love and passion. That way it will come back to me ten fold, or at least I hope it will.
Know that I have been a mom, to a little boy Named Nylan, I will always be tied to this child. Even thou I am divorced and no longer have legal ties to him, he is and will always be my son. I puffy heart step parents, because they step up to the plate and become the parents no one asked them to be. They just do, I just did. Also Know that I have a child in heaven, that experience alone has made me stronger than I have ever thought possible. He is with me in spirit every day and brings me peace knowing that he is resting with God.
I am a young divorcee and no I did not fail my x husband. He recently told me that I was one heck of a wife. He thanked me for being the mom I didn’t have to be to his son and for taking care of his dogs. He realizes that he failed me and that he crushed my dream of a happy marriage. I still hold on to that dream, the dream of a successful marriage. Divorce has taught me that I don’t have to take mr right now and to wait for Mr. Right. So that is what I am doing waiting for Mr. Right. (you can drop him down anytime god)
The above are the major things you need to know. The minor things are as follows:
Budget: I have no idea what this word means, I have a nasty spending habit, I can afford it so why not. We only live once and hey money doesn’t buy happiness.
Travel: I keep my passport in my purse (I know that’s a stupid place for it) however just having it with me gives me the knowledge that I can ditch this country at my whim. I’ve traveled the globe and conquered its sites, leaving me with wonder and joy.
Hybrid Cars: I love love my Prius, I will never drive a normal car again. Going green is a conscious decision not a life style for me. Just know that I have no idea how to check my oil, antifreeze, and all of that jazz under the hood. Yes, we are so having AAA!
Sleeping: I don’t sleep with my head on my pillow. 9 out of 10 times it’s on the floor or your side of the bed. An I don’t like to be covered, so no pulling the covers up to my ears. I will hit you if you do this and then apologize for hitting you.
Chocolate: Don’t waste your money on it. I am severely allergic to it and can not eat it. I know, I know all women love chocolate. If you bring it to me, I’ll shove it right back at you or either that puke on your shoes. Its your choice keep me chocolate free or wear puke on your shoes. (For me its a no brainer)
Dogs: The muppet and I are a package deal. No ifs ands or buts. We go together no matter what, so you must like dogs.
Follow this outline and you will do all right with me. An be ready for the craziest ride of your life. No day goes without adventure in my world and I like it that way. So where ever you are future husband know that one caring, passionate witty Ninja is waiting for you.
