:the one where we play the right kind of games :



when you are young there is this whole battle for control. a desire to control people. especially those of the opposite sex. you like him but he doesn't like you. then he likes you but you don't like him anymore. there are secrets and hurts and words that should have never been spoken. yet you love and he loves this shallow love that you one day realize wasn't love at all.

one day you meet love and it looks nothing like the deceiver that possessed so many years of your young life.

one day you meet love and it is real and deep and forever.

one day you meet love and it doesn't control. it doesn't hurt and words are never weapons.

one day you meet love and it doesn't hold back or pretend. it gives and accepts.

one day you meet love and it gives you late night talks about everything and nothing at all.

one day you meet love and it is a game of horse, with the little ones new basketball goal, while the tinies sleep.

one day you meet love and it is late night runs to the grocery store for your favorite ice cream and magic shell.

one day you meet love and it is laundry and sweeping floors. no longer chores but teamwork.

one day you meet love and it is compromise and bending over backwards, never competition.

one day you meet love and it is more than you could have ever dreamed.

one day you meet love and it is laughter, so. much. laughter.

one day you meet love and it is blue eyes and smiles passed down to little ones you made together.

one day you meet love and it is fun.

one day you meet love and it is forever and true.

you find that it is without a doubt, worth the wait.
