Definitely not polically correct smile . This will be my 4th Christmas without my family. My daughter will turn 18 tomorrow. 3.5 years ago I didnt see a reason for living anymore. I had lost everything. I had nothing. I was nothing. The fear kicked my ass.

Well my thinking was wrong. Yeah finacially things are tighter but life is freaking awesome. I have really gotten to know me. I enjoy and love just depending on me. I used to let ex take care of stuff not all but some. Now im 100% responsible. Love it. And no not a control freak just an adult.

And been dating the same girl for the past 2 years. I asked her to marry me. She said yes. Yeap I asked her to marry me. And I was scared chitless. Was wondering if i was psychotic. I do hear and see things.lol. I love being a husband and her 17 y/o thinks of me as her step dad. My daughter likes them a lot.

About ex? Havent seen or spoken to her since October 2012. I dont speak to my D about her period. I have no bitterness anger or hatred towards her. I thank God fi r not making me bitter.

Just a lil update and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas love u all.

Congrats on opening your heart and allowing the sun to shine once more! God is love and if we don't take that gift and express it in our lives then we have nothing. Merry Christmas!
