Another Monday is here - the week will be a busy one with lots of extracurricular activities and increased academic focus as we march toward spring break. Mom-life keeps me on my toes in a big way. My baby had a birthday this weekend which involved extra celebration and a party planned for later this week. We're wrapping up our basketball/cheerleading schedule and I'm looking forward to less on the calendar in the spring.
Now for the real scoop. You may remember that I went on my first ever blind date way back in the fall. As I realized how wonderful this man was, I gently and quiety fell in love with him and he genuinely feels the same. Making time to be together became a priority, but the reality is that our lives are not integrated and our children are in different seasons. I was crushed when he vocalized the concerns which had been there all along and I interpretted his concerns as his desire to abandon our relationship. I was wrong, and I'll have more to say about that this week. The bottom line is that Mr. Wonderful was not trying to end our relationship. The result has been a bit of whiplash for me as he as actually moved closer in the direction of our relationship and is pursuing me and my children.
I hesitate to share much, because I still do not know the outcome of our story. What I'm sure of is that our love in authentic. We have a hope for a future together and pray that God will reveal how, when and if that is to be His plan. I still worry that my heart will be broken, but I'm trying to remember my heart belongs to God and no matter what happens, He will care for me.
I just wanted to share the latest in my mid-life romantic escapades. What does the week hold for everyone else?
