“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”- Judy Garland.
Today is August 2, 2014 and marks new beginnings. This is Brendan Warkentin and to you, he may not much or anything to you but to me, thats a whole different story. Today Brendan asked me to marry him, can you believe that? The nerve this guy has to, talk me into a nap, walk into my house, give me my favorite flowers, get down on one knee and ask me to spend the rest of my life with him? Really?
Yep! Really—and I said YES! Brendan is seriously one of a kind, you will not meet another man like him, That was my ultimate goal anyways, all my ex’s or people I have dated while it was a great learning experience in the end it didn’t work out and my ultimate goal was to find someone that EXACT opposite of that!
Finding someone, wait a second, I didn’t find him he found me, never gave up on me and had so much patience. Those are just some of the reasons I said yes—but he has encouraged me to be the woman I dream to be, he pushes me to reach my dreams with writing, directing and becoming a film-maker. When I’m feeling down, he makes me feel better—fact is he makes my life better, period.
Life isn’t perfect and there are always going to be the road blocks you run into and the trails will be hard and bumpy but at least with this tender, warm, affectionate, adorable, kind, meaningful, caring, happy, gratifying, enchanting, my everything, fine, handsome, bewitching, heavenly, forgiving, patient man, everything is so much easier to handle!
I never thought god would send me a man that could make me feel comfortable with all I choose to do with my life, that would become my best friend before my boyfriend but he sure did and I thank him for that every single time I get the chance. Words are such an understatement for what I feel, think and want our future family to achieve.
See, my dreams have officially began, with him by my side, my dreams of having a family are slowly being fulfilled, my dreams of reaching my dream job will never wither because he is A MAN, not a boy pulling me away from anything that may better myself. Brendan, he isn’t jealous or deceiving, lies don’t live within his heart—he reminds me much of myself. I have a HUGE heart and it used to give me my kicks, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
He is spiritual, loving, and protective. I don’t have the perfect past, baggage or story—but the great thing about this man, he accepted me, past, present and future. I don’t believe I could have any one man a better fit for me than Brendan. I mean, everyone has a ‘someone.’ so putting every man down is not my goal here because you are all amazing in your own ways!
My point here is to say, I’M ENGAGED! Oh my gosh, I never thought I would take this route again but he has made me feel safe, loved and worthy of reaching my goals. Bren, my love, thank you for taking care of me, loving me and holding me tight when life got a little shaky. I don’t know who or where I would be without you by my side.
I also want to thank his amazing mother and father. You raised one wonderful young man, the perfect man for me! You have also raised amazing other men and women in your family! They are truly blessed to have you to call ‘mom and dad.’ I must say, mom, dad, thank you. I say this because you love me, accept me and never once judged me. You are the most loving family ever! I love that I can come home and jump on the floor and have dad drag me around the floor, I love that I can be crazy with all my amazing siblings! I love that I can BE ME! I remember once my mom told me, “Laura I don’t know if you will ever find a man as crazy as you.” BUT I did, he’s fun, spontaneous and a blast. Thank you for being the same! I feel so blessed!
To end, I would just like to say…… IM ENGAGED!
