Dear Mr. Someday


Whenever I’m with my family I think about Mr. Someday a lot. How he will fit in with our bunch, whether he will get along with my brothers-in-law, whether my parents and sisters will love him as much as I do, whether my nieces and nephews will adjust to calling him “uncle” even though they’re getting older. I wonder a lot of things. So I thought I’d post about it. I actually have a list that I made on my personal blog about a year ago as a result of a writing workshop that I thought I’d share with you guys. The assignment of the workshop was to share 50 things that you look for in a potential partner/spouse. I remember enjoying myself as I brainstormed. Here is what I came up with:

1. He loves Jesus
2. He cares about people
3. He makes me laugh
4. He thinks I’m funny
5. He’s smarter than I am
6. He makes me feel smart

8. He loves music
9. He’s creative
10. He’s outgoing (to balance me out)
11. He’s honest
12. He’s tolerant of all people
13. He accepts people (especially me) as they are
14. He’s trustworthy
15. He cares about family
16. He’s adventurous
17. He puts faith first
18. He knows how to be a leader
19. He’s attractive! (To me)
20. He’s attracted to me
21. He knows how to apologize
22. He knows how to forgive
23. He can communicate his feelings
24. He wants to be a father
25. He has Godly wisdom
26. He has a silly side
27. He’s fun to be with
28. He’s romantic
29. He’s confident
30. He’s humble
31. He’s passionate
32. He’s strong
33. He knows what he wants
34. We have chemistry
35. He has strong values
36. He’s spiritual
37. He’s generous
38. He can hold me accountable
39. He’s compassionate
40. He’s educated
41. He works hard
42. He plays hard
43. He can be spontaneous
44. He’s good with his money (because one of us should be!)
45. He’s respectful
46. He’s sweet
47. He loves animals (or at least dogs!)
48. He seeks God’s will for His life
49. He’s flawed
50. He’s perfect! For me.:)

I did this a long time ago and the two things on my list were: just like my dad and just like my best friend. My husband is both.

I just love the list idea because the faith in it alone brings that right man to you. We women cannot settle for less and definitely need to trust that God will guide his daughters to their loves :-)

It is great to know what you want in a partner, and it looks like you do. I’m sure you’ll find him :)

How wonderful! Just imagine the day when you will be able to share this list with him!
