“When A Man Loves A Woman” by Percy Sledge

I have this song simply because a boyfriend I was with at the time kept singing it to me. At the time I thought I was going to be with him for the rest of my life. It was a whirl wind romance, a summer I will never forget. But that image got shattered when we both went home. He went to his duty station and I went back home. We kept the relationship going as long as we could. But we couldn’t stand being away from each other. Obviously the relationship didn’t last because I am married now. I keep the song on my Ipod to remind myself of that summer, to remind myself of my adventures before a started a new book in my series of Life. I hope you like this song as much as I do.

There was a time in my life where I could not wait until I was twenty two. I couldn't imagine life after that because I was so focused on reaching my favorite number in age. Then something amazing happened to me. Shortly after I turned twenty two I got together with the love of my life. I had been dreaming of being with this man since the day I met him, and at sixteen I decided I wanted to marry him one day. Well, six months after we got together we married. A year after that, our son was born. So here I am, married, and with three children (he had two daughters prior to getting with me). And it occured to me one day, the reason why I couldn't see life after twenty two was because my life was meant to start over, and I wouldn't trade this life for anything. I write in this blog to let others know that step moms do have a voice, and to let everyone know that moms are not just robots, we have likes and dislikes, things we love and things we wish we could change. And of course, there are the hardships to being a parents. I will share all that and more on my journey of finding out what this new life has in store for me. Please enjoy!
