Winter 2004 Newsletter

During Thanksgiving week, Ms. Wheelchair Maryland and I went to the Baltimore Civic Center to help out at an event to feed people who are less fortunate. The event was sponsored by Goodwill Industries. What a wonderful feeling it was to give back to others. One may ask what this has to do with dating? Well I feel that it has everything to do with dating.

When you meet someone special, you need to learn to give of yourself before you can accept another person’s love. No, this is not just some rattling-on from the Director, I really mean it. In order to receive healthy love you need to be able to give it unconditionally. The word unconditionally is a difficult word in American culture today but it can be reached if we dig deep enough.

Sixteen years ago at a Dateable holiday party I met a person named Todd Mullins. Todd and I found some common areas in our lives to share. Todd and I created a wonderful bond over time and became the best of friends. We have traveled all over this country together and even went to Cuba. Todd and I had differences and struggles but most of all we had laughter; Laughter together, laughter at each other, and some times laughter at others. We could laugh together mainly because of the unconditional love we had for each other. Sometimes that opportunity only comes around once in your life may it be a friend or a mate. Todd past away this year and left a big gap in my life.

In the dating world people may come and go maybe not through death but through breakup. I ask you through this holiday season and on in to the new year to view people on a different level. Appreciate everyone for who they are and you never know, you may find the allusive unconditional love. Todd, thank you for 16 wonderful years; here is to you bud, Cheers….
