22


I always find myself at work, falling into a daze. I look over to my ipod touch to see that another beautiful song from Jill Scott is playing on Pandora Radio. She always reminds me how Beautifully Human he really is.

He wows me. He is attentive. He compliments me. He caters to me. He understands me. He makes me laugh. He makes me responsible. I can go on and on... 

The 22nd marked a significant amount of months since we met. It is also the same day that Heroes Season Three premiered. Since then, I got him hooked by watching all the episodes from Season 1 and 2 on DVD. It was like our own little "thing." He is now a bigger fan then I am!

Before him, I almost lost my sense of knowing who people are. I had on these "Church Stained Glasses" and when they were shattered, seeing them for who they are can be heart breaking. Even still. It takes a great deal of trust in GOD not to allow the past experiences of others take control of you. I am bigger then that. I am bigger then other people's issues and lack of consideration towards my heart. I once felt damaged...

But he made First-Aid Kit handy. I didn't allow him to put the band-aid on me. He was just there to kiss it when I put it on my heart. He was there when I took it off, as I allowed it to heal. We took turns rubbing cocoa butter on the scar. He was there. Yes, even superman needs a Hero.


Everyone always asked us, when are you guys going to make it official? 


I wanted to take my time. Making sure I wasn't rushing into anything that was important to me! When he gave me that ring on Christmas, it was the first time I told him, "I Love You." Little do you guys know, the ring didn't fit! LOL. We had to send it back to the company. He was determined to get me another one. It was such an amazement to me, that on the 22nd, as we dined in New York City, I found a Golden Box with a Bow on it next to my water. Could it really be? Another ring, just for me! Only this time, it wasn't just "To Happiness" it was a "To Commitment"... when ever I was ready.

Wow was I ready? Could I let love in again?

He wows me. He is attentive. He compliments me. He caters to me. He understands me. He makes me laugh. He makes me responsible. So why not? He smiled at me, we kissed, and we made each other happy, on the 22nd, the day our love was built, we continue the love we have showed each other since we met.

This is our foundation.

Alright, Shawn. You get a limited number of these "I'm in love...blah blah blah" posts, use them wisely. Don't be one of those people (*cough* Cocoa Rican *cough*) who gets into these wonderful relationships and only talk about the wonderful relationship, which, of course, leaves those of us not in wonderful relationships drafting bitter comments like this one.

I'm just foolin. Love is a beautiful thang. I'm happy for ya playa.

You do it Shawn! I loved every thing about about this post... the Danity Kane "Damaged" references, the band-aid, cocoa butter and kisses.

Hold on to whatever happiness you find.
