I am on cloud 9 right now! If you happened to have been following my posts over the last couple weeks you will remember I just went through a crappy break up with a man who was not very good to me. It has been a huge change in my life and my attitude and happiness has done such a 180 for the better very fast.
So there is this guy I went to highschool with. We were never really friends, but ran in the same circles of people. He read about my breakup on Facebook and gave me a call. He said he had always thought I was very beautiful and that I didn’t need to be with a guy who treated me so poorly. He went on to tell me about the three years he had spent in the army, and his world travels. He told me how now that he is out of the army, he has been going to school to become a professional airline pilot. He lives about 2 and 1/2 hours away from me on the army base, so I didn’t think much of it when he asked to take me out sometime. We talked for awhile, about my school, and my plans for the weekend. Late last night I get a phone call from him saying he has a surprise for me. He was coming into town just to see me! My doorbell rang at about 11:00 AM this morning, and there he was, with groceries in hand prepared to make me brunch before I went to work at 2:00pm. Hello, charmer alert! He made chocolate chip pancakes (my fave) and we watched some tv before it was time for me to go to work. Moments after he left he sent me a text saying how he had such a wonderful time, and how I had more than exceeded his expectations of how wonderful I was (awww, swoon). He asked to spend more time with me over the next couple of days and of course I agreed!
I take a very important nursing entrance exam tomorrow morning, and to celebrate me (hopefully) doing well, we are headed to Orlando for a trip to Ikea, and dinner and a movie at Downtown Disney. We even have plans to find a place to watch the fireworks tomorrow night. I am so excited!!
And it is such a small world!! After talking for awhile we realized that my dad and his step-dad work together, and that our mom’s are actually friends and that they all used to ride motorcycles together!! We also talked about how much I loved Disney, and he told me his dad worked for Disney for 20 years, and he can get free tickets anytime!
I feel so good about this 🙂 I can guarantee you this is the man I am going to marry. It seems like he was made for me. Unbelievably respectful to women and such a gentleman, but has a great silly side that works perfectly with mine. He kept telling me that he couldn’t believe I had been under his nose all this time, and that he thinks I am beautiful as well as being a really good person. Can it get any better than this?????
I am feeling so blessed and fortunate right now. Leaving my ex was the best decision I have ever made…because my broken road has led me to wonderful new things.
