For you Mary =-)

My cousin wants me to blog more often…hehe! So here I am =-)

Life has been an amazing whirlwind lately…I have been on a wonderful ride that I believe God is driving. I had all but given up on love and the sorts. I wasn’t looking nor did I really care if it happened. I had been through enough with men and didn’t really want to go there again.

Well, by way of the internet, I had gotten back in touch with this man I knew since we were 12 years old. We “dating” in middle school….hehe. We lost touch after high school as we both got married and had our own children. We starting talking online in November and he came to visit me and my children for Christmas. We just talked all night, caught up on each others past. During this time, we both realized that we have been through very similar pasts and we felt a deep connection beginning. He had been married and divorced and has 5 children…Whew!!!! And I have been married and divorced with 2 children.

After my last relationship I teased and said that I only would date people that already had the kids that they wanted…I was!!! Well together we are like the Brady Bunch!!!!! We haven’t gotten them all together yet….But oh boy when we finally do!!!! LOL Funny thing to find out is that his oldest son and mine are the same age, by a couple of months, and they went to the same school for a while and knew of each other!! Strange!!!

One VERY important thing to me was to find someone who had a personal relationship with Jesus. And it seems that God put someone in my life that he knew would give me what I needed. Rafael is very involved in his church and is an usher at the church where he belongs.

Unfortunately, he does not live in Orlando…He lives in West Palm Beach. It has not been bad though. We appreciate all the time that we do get to spend together. He drives up here and I have driven down there also. He bought me a web cam and we get to see each other every day! He “tucks” me into bed every night!

I don’t know if part of our closeness is that we have known each other since we were young or if this is what it feels like when God puts two people in each others lives?!?!? I thank God everyday for giving me the opportunity to get to know Rafael again, the good and the bad…cause NO ONE, but Jesus, is perfect!!!! It’s been 21 years in the making and who knows what will happen now….Only God knows!!!!
