there she goes, there she goes again,
racin' thru' my brain...
yup, here i go again. let's get it straight, this is my blog so let's talk about me for a change. i was told that when we pray, we have to be very specific with our requests. that's what i did, i prayed to God for the guy of my dreams... one who's funny, charming, smart, with straight crew-cut hair, dimples (maybe a cleft chin if it isnt asking too much), boyish looks... in other words, a cutie. God has granted my wish, only it was in the form of an 8 yr old boy. i'd get calls from him day in, day out asking if i could visit him (and bring presents too, like maybe a turtle?), flattering but hmm... a bit young for me, dont you think? he has an older brother whose goodlooks surpass that of adonis', and once when his brother and i were watching cartoons together laughing our brains out, my admirer was sulking in a corner concocting plans to make me jealous. there was also a time when i went shopping with a friend, tired of all the fuss, i sat on a bench when lo and behold!, a boy (another little boy) stood in front of me flashing his most winning smile holding out a fake flower (which he got from the home & garden section). "ok this is getting weird", i mused... i wanted to find out what was happening, i opened my bible and my eyes rested upon this verse:
"Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires."
-- Song of Songs 2:7
back when i was a little girl -- you know, like my 8 yr old beau -- i'd daydream about being heidi, or cindy, or lili (often humming the classic song hi-lili, hi-lo!), i would make believe that my bedroom was a tower and the dining area was a banquet hall. always, our study was a haven for me. the study would transform into a secret garden, a ballroom where all my favourite waltzes were played and every character in my books came to life, or just about anything that my precious little heart pleased. i wanted to be a disney girl where happy endings arent far off. i still want to be a disney girl -- readers, stop rolling your eyes for a second -- society i think, has long enough misjudged those poor girls, brainwashing today's little girls into thinking that waiting for the right person is wrong. sometimes, it's good to wait. let's consider the lives of these fairy tale women, 1) they got their prince (a real prince for that matter), and 2) they lived happily ever after. exactly, it's just a fairy tale... no one gets the prince, and there arent too many happy endings, but that's the cynical adult thinking. it never hurts to dream especially for young girls and boys. besides, a growing number of princes marry commoners nowadays. i'm not saying that could come true for every little girl, but hey, let them dream while they're still at that age where mermaids are real and fairy tales come true.
did you know...
