We have been together for almost 3 years and he has become the father that my children never had. He has also shown me what a relationship built on love, trust, honesty and most of all respect, is suppose to be like. He gave my oldest daughter away at her wedding and tells me that maybe God didn't give him any children earlier in life because he was meant to be the father of my children. They are "our" children now. We have been through a lot within the time we have been together, many birthdays and celebrations as well as too many funerals and illnesses and family tragedies. Many couples would have separated by now due to all of these circumstances, but we have endured and become closer and more in love with every curve ball thrown at us. He is a wonderful man and I make sure to let him know that every day. I make sure he feels like a king everyday. He makes me want to be the best mother, girlfriend and daughter I can be. He calls me his queen and makes sure to let me know everyday how much he loves me and makes me feel like a queen everyday. I know this may not be the most romantic story you read but, I wouldn't change anything to make this story any better. I have already won the man of my dreams and the father of my children's dreams, so if we are not chosen it is perfectly fine with me. I get to spend the rest of my life with my king at my side and be his queen and lift him up everyday for the rest of our lives. I don't think there's anything better than that! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
My relationship is unique, because I meant the man of my life when I was 17, 12yrs ago, til this day we text each other like we are still in high school, may sound silly but it's true, he's a great person inside and out , and awesome dad, and stepdad to our kids , every couple has their ups and downs , but no matter what situation we were in we have always been there to help each other up, he's a hard worker everyday, there are times we don't get too see him much because of work, but he's working hard for his family, so much has happened in the last year, we had lost our house, everything we owned , but that wasn't enough to bring us down , we stay strong for each other and our kids, I couldn't have asked for a better person, he works 12 days on 2 days off, long hours, and I take care of our kids 24-7, and when we do see him, he's tired but still manages cook dinner,(barbecue is his favorite), we do what we can for our family, I love this man do much that I am happy to say I am very happy the man he has become, I can honestly say that our relationship has grown so much he's loving, caring ,honest, we bring the joy out if each other , we make each other laugh in the weird ways, but knowing that we are by each other side til the day we grow old together, makes everything better, and knowing it will always be ok, I know we are not the perfect people but who is, but too me out life couldn't get any better than it already is, this man is like no other and I'm proud to say it over and over again, his love, and compassion , still get goose bumps when he hugs me, tell me how much he loves me,and that I've been there for him threw thick and thick, he's my world my everything, we make the best of our relationship, because at the end we turn to each other for the love and support, Thomas Flores , is my heart and soul, live of my life, best father ever, and wouldn't change that for anything or anybody in this world ever.!!!
Clint and Julie Dooley
Julie and I are 41 years old. She is my first marriage. I waited a long time to meet the girl who would be right for me. I was at the point of giving up when we found each other on FaceBook of all things, she sent me a friend request thinking I was someone else. After some time, we finally started to correspond and finally went out on our first date. We spent three hours one night at Apple bee's talking non-stop. We didn't have any awkward moments, we were both immediately comfortable with one another. Even she can attest to this, she has said before, that she has never felt the level of comfort or connection with anyone as she did with me. One year to the day, we went back to Apple bee's with a group of friends and that is when I proposed to her. We have been through many personal hardships. When we got married, we paid for wedding and reception ourselves when neither one of us was working, we have dealt with a lot of personal hardship as well. Julie has had a number of medical issues, we have to take our granddaughter in at less than one year old and have had her for almost a year now, my paternal grandmother passed last year and eighteen days after, my father passed. Her parents have both had medical difficulties as well. But through it all, we feel that our love has grown stronger and we have become closer. When other couples would have probably cut-and-run, we have endured and grown stronger. We both feel like kids again. There are many other things that make us amazing together, but mostly, my wife is the most AMAZING woman I have ever known. I want the world to know how much she means to me and how much love she has given me. I never thought I would find anyone as amazing, warm, loving, kind, beautiful, and wonderful as she is. I want this recognition for her. She deserves it, and so much more.
