“If we get out of here, I don’t want to see how things go, I don’t want to take things slow… Because the way it goes, is that you’re always the one.”
I always wonder If the love of my life is in the same place as me sometimes.
my boyfriend and i lived in the same town as children, except he went to public school and i went to private. my family moved around to different towns from the summer before eighth to eleventh grade,when my parents finally returned to renting in my hometown and sent me to public school. my boyfriend and i worked after school jobs at businesses right next to each other for a year before we met the first day of English class senior year of high school. a year later,we started dating. What’s strange is when we were children each of our parents used the same pharmacy,shopped at the same grocery store, and even frequented some of the same restaurants. I always daydreamed about meeting my true love, even as a young girl ,so enthralled by love stories. As a school girl, I’d stare out my car window wondering if I had just passed “the One” and didn’t know it. Growing up in a somewhat religious house and attending Christian school, I’d pray adamantly for my future and the person who God had created for me.As I got older, I became desensitized. By the time Brian and I started dating at 19, I had set my hopes low. Little did I know, I had found my soulmate, my best friend, the answer to all those girlish prayers. When I look at him, everything I ever wanted and need, it astounds me that he was always just miles away from me, living his life parallel to mine until our roads were destined to cross. <3
“My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was. I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.
