Last year at this time, another blogger wrote a beautiful post dedicated to me. It meant so much to me that I saved it on my hard drive, and I'm so glad I did now. Sarah is not blogging anymore, and neither is her husband Jacob. They are a beautiful young couple with a gorgeous little daughter, and I'm guessing that they chose to spend less time online and more time with her. I found this the other day while searching for some lesson plans, and I decided to repost it. This is not a big pat on my own back, but a reminder for me not to be so hard on myself.

For blissful Babbling Brooke

This post is for Babbling Brooke. This is not a poem, I don't do those, and it isn't something that should not be taken seriously. She's a wonderful person and deserves all the compliments a person could give to her, especially after all the smiles she brings us.

I don't know Brooke personally I just go to her blog almost everyday, among others, and she either makes me laugh or she makes me want to drive out to Florida and give her a big hug. Her spirit is young, her words are lively, and she always flares you up with humor. She's a woman of great character and is brave enough to be with out someone.

It's hard to believe that a woman who is so talented and so full of life...is single. She has many brothers and I believe that she learned from them never to settle. I believe she knows deep down that the man she will marry some day is going to make ever day special for her, not just holidays. He will cook for her, he will tidy up with out her asking for it, he will tell her she's beautiful every day, and be the joy she deserves. I don't think it's in her blood to settle for someone less than that. I'm sure she's had many suiters and many boyfriends and probably sees right through every single man that has stepped up to her face. As graceful as they try, she is too smart. She is too overwhelming. She is so full of light that even the most amazing man is babbling in front of her. If any gentelman would be as bold as to walk in her direction you better know that only the most loving man, only the most compassionate man, only the man who will cherish her the best will have a chance.

Brooke, I wouldn't doubt for a second if every other man you speak with online has thought more than once about how he could stop his life and head out to meet the challenge of your hand. I don't know you personally, but I know what joy you bring, I know its been awsome getting to know some of your thoughts, jokes, and memories.
And I would bet I'm not the only person who feels this way.

Jacob and I send our love and appreciation for bringing us smiles and fun conversation just about everyday.

Thank you Sarah, wherever you are!!!

Whatever happened to those two?

Anyway, that is a nice appreciation of an awesome Jersey girl!

I'll be missing you this weekend when I will be visiting the family, which will no doubt require a few buckets of rocks.

Anita said...

Brooke you are obviously a sweetheart with a sassy side to match. I can completely understand why someone would write this about you. You're great.

I just assumed you had 3 eyes or something, and that's why you're single. But some guys are into that, you know.

Teasins is lovins, baby. =)

How true!

Sizzle said...

Lushy said...

Yeah! What Sarah said!

Blonde Vigilante said...

That is ohhhhh soooo true!

JJ said...

I wondered what happened to those two. My money is on the Witness Protection Program. They were probalby busted for teaching evolution.

thephoenixnyc said...

HEY!! I'm back from China. That is a lovely post and I agree with everything they said.


sleepydog said...

I concur wholeheartedly.

Cactus Prick said...

My guess is that she's out writing a screen play for the next big chick-flick.

bah humbug.

Brookelina said...

Flounder - I wish I knew where they were. What a great couple. If not this year, then next summer for sure we will meet at the Greenie!

Anita - thank you so much. I'm Most likely single because I'm a fuckwit when it comes to men. But, I do love puppies!!

Neil - ha! So you say!

Ms. Sizz - it really made my day when she wrote it, and it makes my day every time I read it.

Lushy - right back atcha babe!

Blonde - you are the best, don't forget it.

JJ - no kidding. They truly were a unique couple. I miss them - who knows, maybe this will bring them out hiding!

Phoenix - thank you Mr. "I'm engaged and didn't bother telling anyone." I'm not bitter.

Sleepy - that's cause you're a sweetheart.

Prick - I was just thinking that this was becoming a lovefest, til I read your comment. You suck - and I like it.

Well, I moved from Nevada to Kentucky. I'm halfway there!

Übermilf said...

Todd, need I remind you yet again -- you're MY property now. And I'm not good at sharing.

Also, I miss Jacob and Sarah.

Melliferous Pants said...

I remember when Sarah wrote this...I think it was around the time I found you.

Brookelina said...

Todd - next step, NJ!!

Ubie - I saw him first. You can have his friend.

Pants - and thank goodness you did!

yournamehere said...

I'm being fought over by a happily married woman and a single woman who wouldn't sleep with me anyway. Business as usual.

Brookelina said...

Todd - why must everything be about sex? Oh, that's right. Never mind.

Übermilf said...

Nobody ever writes nice things about me.

Maybe I should rethink this "Being a Bitch All the Time" thing I've got going on.

MoDigli said...

I miss those two as well! I remember when Sarah posted this originally on her blog.

I love the picture you chose for this one! Just gorgeous!

Tits McGee said...

Yup. I second everything Sarah said.

Dearly departed Deems doting endearing dramas for darling Brooke.

Why can't your name begin with a D?

you screwed up my alliteration.

mgc said...

I'm a fuckwit when it comes to men. But, I do love puppies!!

so are most men when it come to women. puppies are cool though.

Bill said...

This is a lovely missive and I wish I could get posts like that. (Seriously.)

Having said that, I also must be honest and say that what I'm really concerned about is meeting the challenge of your feet.

I think if our feet could be as one, our souls could be.

And now I'm thinking "pedicure" needs to be added to my to-do list.

jiggs said...

brookie! you're rad!

Übermilf said...

And then my uterus fell out!

Nick said...

I used alliteration for you and I get nothing.
