I grew up in a single parent home. My mom never brought anyone around us. She stayed single until the man I call my dad came into our lives when I was 13.
When they first started talking, my mom took me aside and asked me to write down everything that I would want in a father.
I wrote a whole page.
Extremely detailed, down to eye color and traits.
When it got serious between them, she showed him the note and he fit everything except 2 things.
He wasn’t rich and he didn’t have green eyes.
God sent her exactly what she and I needed.
So in that same respect, I decided to write down my own list of “requirements” for a future love.
If he is out there, then he will find me. Until then I’ll work on myself so I will be ready and be the woman he needs when he shows up.
When I wrote this, it was so hard not to think of Frank since he fit so many things. I made sure to include the traits he didn’t have as well.
Dark, tousled hair. Blue or green eyes. Chiseled cheekbones. Jaw like an anvil. 5 o’clock shadow or beard. Straight white teeth, full lips. Beautiful smile with eye creases. Dimples. Thick neck.
