      Finally through the hard part


I graduated high school with high hopes of a fulfilling future. That future was stomped to pieces by a man, no, a boy, who thought I would never be strong.

For the first few months, things seemed to be almost a fairy-tale. He seemed like the perfect person, sweet, loving, caring, and in the end manipulative and hurtful. I spent a total of 11 months with this person, the first two by choice, the second two by stupidity, and the remainder fearful for my life. We fought constantly, about anything and everything. Mostly he fought, but on the rare occasion that I would talk back, I got beat. Everyone knew what was going on, yet there was little they could do to stop it. My Mother being the brilliant woman that she is, had a solution. If we couldn't make the equation equal, why not add another something to it. She introduced me to one of her co-workers. This shy guy needed a companion to go to movies with, and have some fun. Nothing serious, because she knew I wasn't getting out of this relationship. He came to my house to pick me up, and off we went for the most wonderful night of my life. Dinner at a nice restaurant turned into chicken nuggets at Wendy's, and the movie turned into the most intriguing conversation I had ever had with a man. We ended up back at Wendy's after the movie for frosty's, which my date politely wore on the way home! I laughed as though I had never laughed before. He seemed to make my fear go away. He gave me strength and made me see that I needed to be with him. That I deserved better! And 2 and a half years later, we're only 18 weeks away from a huge catholic wedding; and 18 weeks away from Happily-Ever-After!

Thanks Mom! You've given me life all over again!
