i have a lot to learn in this life.
i'm far from perfect. just in case you were wondering.
and one imperfection i have is being more of a pessimist than and optimist.
i’m really trying not to be a pessimist, i promise.
do you know something great about lincoln?
he is definitely an optimist.
he never complains.
well, maybe he occasionally complains about a teacher, but who doesn't?
other than that... he is mister positivity all of the time.
i'm a complainer.
definitely a complainer.
"my arm hurts... my back hurts... i have a headache... i'm hungry... i'm cold... i'm hot... i'm tired... ughhh, i hate school... i live too far away... it's too hard! (i say this one a lot)...blah, blah, blah."
i even annoy myself!
and i hate that i'm a complainer.
this is one of things i hope to learn from lincoln through the years.
how to become a optimist.
i'm working on it.
so i apologize for my lame ornery post yesterday.
do you know why blogging is so great?
people remind me how blessed i am even when i'm being a complete girl.
girls are a strange species...
well, i probably shouldn't generalize that.
i, jalene, am a strange species.
at least he loves me despite my craziness.
do you know what other great quality he has?
he is level headed. which i think most guys are... but i definitely need a level headed guy.
i have a feeling he's going to teach me that too.
he also is very good at loving everyone. people flock to him, and they just adore him.
it's really quite remarkable to watch.
i'm so lucky because i get to love him the most. muahaha!
i hope he can teach me how to love everyone too.
he's also really patient.
especially with me.
i love him for that.
oh! and you know what else??
lincoln never procrastinates.
and i am the world's biggest.
he gets things done way ahead of time.
i wait until the last minute.
maybe that's why he's a lot less stressed than me.
he's going to teach that to me too.
how to not be a procrastinator.
anyway, thanks for your kind words despite my ornery-ness yesterday.
you help me see perspectives i tend to forget.
and i'm just glad i have someone like to lincoln to compliment me.
i'm definitely marrying someone better than me.
