It’s been a few months. Some of the best days. Some of the hardest days.
We are getting to know each other. We are learning what we want out of life.
Some days it feels like a fairy tale. Some days I sit back and watch this man in the greatest pain of his life with no way to help him heal besides saying, “I’m here”.
There have been bumps in our road, but I’m determined.
On a whim, our relationship has gone public in the community. There’s mixed feelings. Most people support us and feel we are a great match. We care about our community and serve daily. We love God and we want to enjoy our lives together A few have very negative thoughts on us that are simply not true.
It’s only been a few months since the passing of his wife. We honor her. She’s a part of our journey. She isn’t here anymore and we are not in the wrong. Would either of us think this would have happen. No. But it did. And it’s the most beautiful journey of our lives.
The community will get bored and forget we exist. They will go about their business and leave us to live in peace.
Until then, we will continue with our lives. Every day will present new challenges and new adventures and I want nothing more than to spend my life with this man, discovering all we have to offer.
I’ve never felt more like I matter. This man has chosen me to be his person. Me. Me?
I’m honored. I feel like my world is opening up.
Until next time.
