A few days ago I experienced my fiancee being my man and the children’s stepfather to be. The man that I will marry on October 5th actually stood up and fought for me and for my children. Not a physical fight but a verbal correction to the children’s father. No man that I have ever dated and there have been a few, has ever, ever, ever, ever, ever walked their walk the way this man does. The children’s father was flabbergasted and I dare say embarrassed. I was in awe. The children were scared because they thought there was going to be a fight, there was not. It was two black men with raised voices explaining how this reality will play out. It was a father realizing that times have indeed changed and this will be the time when a husband and not a boyfriend or a wanna be would allow b.s. to prevail. I fell in love more and more and know that after all that I have gone through this is the person that the Lord has chosen and not one that I chose. After being placed in his path, my eyes were opened and I could clearly see that this is indeed the man for me and for my children.
Retiring at 55 is getting closer and with each day better and best.
