Well after living my life in a really hurtful marriage, to divorcing and then entering the obscene dating world as a single mother, I had kind of given up on love. I wasn’t sure there was anyone in this world that I could find who would love me and love my kids in the capacity we deserved. To stop believing in love is crazy for me because I’m your hopeless romantic all day long.
My best friend said, “you can’t give up on love because if YOU do, love won’t ever exist!”. In an effort to fill my time and loneliness, I did end up going on a date with the guy that would become my truest love. I had no expectations on that day, but the world wanted to show me that love still existed. It will be 2 years on May 18 and I can honestly say it has been the happiest and fullest 2 years of my life. He truly is my soul mate. He loves my kids as much as he loves me and I can’t even measure that’s in words. I made the star chart for the day because it was the beginning of my everything.
