Things that I have noticed…

Okay.  This post will most assuredly sound negative.  That is partly because I am writing this and then the other part is that of the subject matters…
Clothes:  Okay, here goes.  Be ready to be offended…
Why is it that some ladies (married even) wear next to nothing?  Comfort?  Sure, but think about this too…if you put clothes on that you CONSTANTLY HAVE TO TUG AT THE ENDS TO MAKE SURE YOUR PARTS AND PIECES ARE COVERED, then WHY would you spend more money on less clothing?  Furthermore, why would you wear something that shows off what you have?  My dad always taught me that I should look for a young lady who dresses modestly.  Why?  He said that if I went after someone who “didn't leave anything to my imagination” then, chances are, my imagination wasn't the only one that was spinning.  If a young lady dressed in a more modest way then, chances are, it would be more like love over time than lust at first sight.  So does this mean that all women should wear frocks, smocks, and “moo moos?”  No.  But dress in a manner that is not only appropriate for your age, but for your husband (whether you are married, dating, courting, or single).  I would even go so far as to say this…If your husband likes for you to wear more revealing clothing, maybe you should suggest that when you do that, you are also been looked at by other men in a “less than wholesome” way than your husband is looking at you.
Grown men:  This goes out to some of the guys that I work with daily…
I work with grown men.  Men between the ages of 22 and 56 or so.  Somehow, working with these guys shows me that it is hard to find an actual “mature” man.  Most guys prefer to spend more time with their buddys or their computer (i.e. blogger or facebook or “_________”) than with their families.  Some (I should probably put most there) guys run to addictions whether emotional addictions (relationships/self-destruct mode/personal degradation), addictions with a subtance (drugs/alcohol/food), or with mental addictions (the list goes on and on…  So when can we, as men, stand up and grow up.  We seem to run from responsibility these days.  There are more single mom's out there today than any other time period.  I know that personally I fight the urge to just not do work around the house because I rarely sleep.  But that isn't being responsible to my family nor my neighborhood.  That isn't setting a positive role model for my little girl to pattern herself after or for qualities to look for in a future husband. 
What else?  Well, I know there is more, but for right now, I must go to sleep.  I have already been working too long today. 
Until next time…
