I had just split up with my lying, cheating husband of 10 years. I was to find out later exactly how abusive he had been to my children much later. It made me so angry, not just because of what had been done to them, but what had been done to me. The mind and soul numbing abuse that I had suffered as a child blinded me to the faults within the man that I married. What was so funny, tragically so, was that he was the first person that I truly worked on loving, really loving. Deep down in my soul type of loving. And while it seemed at the time that it was all for nothing, it taught me that I could actually let someone in and I could really love someone, have them hurt me so badly and come out alive and better for it.
I put my profile up in Yahoo personals and corresponded with several people, but none connected like my future husband’s. We spoke of Christmas and Halloween and the things we wanted and what we liked most in life. Family, holidays and the importance of decorating properly for Christmas. 😀 As I moved from my old life to my new one he talked me through it each step of the way.
When I saw him that night for the first time that we met I knew he was the one I was supposed to be with. I never had a doubt from that moment on. (I learned later he did..but he had just been badly hurt as well.) I connected with him like I had never done with anyone before. It truly felt like I had been struck by lightening. He is attractive, but he is not drop dead gorgeous. He has intense eyes. And soft lips that I don’t tire of kissing.
We have been together for 13 years, almost 14 and it seems like yesterday that we met and in other ways it seems as if we have known each other forever.

That is a good news story, if I ever heard one. I am so happy for you and your family.
Thank you so much. 😀
This is such an uplifting story. I am so sorry to hear about what happened with your first husband! He sounds not nice in the least. You husband now sounds like a wonderful man and he is lucky to have such a thoughtful wife! 🙂
He has been a wonderful Step-father to my children and a great grandfather too! I have been very fortunate.
What a beautiful post! Quite the reminder for everyone who doesn’t believe in love at first sight 😉 I’m happy you found true love, that really is all that matters, isn’t it? X
This is a wonderful love story. I rejoice in your happy marriage.
