After yesterday's dreary post I have a more uplifting one today.
Today is MyLove and I's second wedding anniversary.
We laugh when I was in 7th grade he was joining the military.
He came into my life when I least expected it. He didn't turn it upside down. He blended into my BabyGirl and I's lives.
When we became serious, he had a heart to heart discussion with my daughter. He told her he was not going to try to replace her dad but he would be there for her always. He knew she was the most important person in my life and he took it upon himself to have that discussion. He made her promises that he has always kept. He never backed out of them no matter how much MyBabyGirl pushed him away or just didn't respond. Thankfully, things have progressed to where they are okay with each other now. But that gesture will always be in my heart.
We've had some obstacles along the way but we have handled it…together.
Our relationship has shown me what a a real relationship should be. It is odd. I was married for 20+ years to another man and have never felt so accepted and loved like with this man.
We are so alike in many ways and but yet different in some.
We were both married before. I had a child while he didn't have any.
I was raised in one place for the first 18 years of my life. His family traveled so he never stayed in one place for long.
Throughout my life I have never had a healthy life. He had a healthy life except for that year with kidney cancer that he has recovered from.
Both of us love to play games. I rather word and shooter games. He likes strategic and sports games. They are all either PC, Wii or PS3.
I was an old fashioned cook using a microwave for heating only. He was a microwave cooker. He bakes and I hate it. I have learned to use the microwave for cooking certain things.
We both can spend a whole afternoon in the same room but not speak any words to the other.
He likes military and history movies. I like romance and crime/drama.
We both like Classic rock but I'm more into the 70-80s while he likes the 60s-70s.
My temper is quick but it takes a lot to light his fuse. When he does, watch out.
He has more patience than me.
We both don't care for shopping.
That's just to name a few.
We would have never met if it was not for online dating. To think I almost didn't call him.
We are celebrating by going dine out and furniture shop.
So everyone have a great day!
