"Wait at least five years before you remarry" they advised, well aware of the three disastrous choices I'd made in the past. But I'd been waiting all my life for someone like this to come along.
I'd only known him for five months, but that was long enough to know that I had to go for it.... give up my job of nineteen years, move from the city I'd lived in for over twenty. Move to another state, find another job, and marry the man who just might prove to be the man of my dreams.
I had everything to loose in such an impulsive decision, and I would have discouraged anyone I knew from doing something like that. Yet there I was, packing up the past twenty years of my life in boxes, abandoning the year and a half of freedom that was so hard won, and heading to a new life in Texas. It was a crazy thing to do, and WAY out of my comfort zone.
Seven years have passed since then, and I have never regretted my decision for one single moment. Papa Bear truly is everything I ever wanted and so much more than I ever believed anyone could be. My advice to people now... use your brain, but follow your heart!
