Unrealistic Expectations

I understand that life is a fairytale romance.

I understand that life is not a romance novel.

There are no perfect endings.

There are no perfect men or perfect relationships.

Yet....every girl wants that fairytale romance.  They want prince charming to come sweeping in and romancing them. 

Yes, even this girl, at the ripe old age of 41 wants to see my prince.  I want to be swept off of my feet.  I want to feel loved and protected.  I want to cuddle at night.  I want to fight uncontrollably yet make up passionately.  I want a ministry partner. 

However, I pray that God takes the unrealistic expectations away from my heart.  It's too painful to continue thinking I'll ever have the perfect ending.
