Paul's mother and my dad went to school together when they were growing up along with some of my dad's brothers. When my dad and mom were married Paul held me while they were getting married. When I was in high school, Paul and I had dated. He had asked me to marry him then, but our lives were going very different ways. Over twenty years later, we found each other again. We both had been through really bad breakups and divorces. We started talking. Two years later he asked me to marry him Christmas morning. My friends, parents, his parents, his daughter and my children all knew. On Christmas morning 2015 he waited until my parents came to my house. I was in the middle of cooking when he and my children pulled me to the couch and had me sit down. Next thing I know Paul was asking me to marry him. I said yes!!!!!!!
