I have known him all my life I thought my mother was joking about hooking us up clearly she wasn't.

Now my mom always hated my son's dad. He wasn't a very nice person and all about himself. It was to me as if it would be my son and I for the rest of my life. Love was something I wasn't looking for. I am young and I just wanted to be me. This was the first time I have been single in three years, and my priorities have changed to my son.

My mom would joke about me dating a older guy from the church, I thought she was rediculous. I never in a million years thought at that moment in just a few short months we would be getting married. It was Mother's day. My first mothers day to be exact. It was also the first time I've been to church  in a while. I looked over and there he was, I stared for a few moments hoping that no one would see me. I was thinking to myself how beautiful he truly was. Then I thought maybe I could ask for his number and see where things would go. A few short minutes later my sister and mom are bumping me telling me to look over at who came to church that day. I just smiled, not letting them know that I was already in the know.

I told my mom if she wanted to get his number then I am okay with it not thinking that she really would. As I was packing up my son to leave, I happened to look out the window and she my mom talking to him. All the sudden I was paralyzed. In shock even. I couldn't believe my mom would want to hook me up with an older man. When she got home, she told me his number and he texted me. Right from the start it felt right. Waiting for his messages gave me butterflies and even though I didn't think that he would like me, things started to go right along.

We texted the majority of the night and ended up getting together the next evening. I was so nervous. I kept thinking He is older than you don't show that your nineteen then he will never like you. When he walked in I didn't know what to know what to do so I hugged him. Hard. It made things a little less awkward when he hugged me back just as hard. It felt good to be in someones arms again.

That day would start the  rest of my life. We talked more and more. We even hungout more. I wasn't expecting this to happen or for me to feel this way. A week past and we were lying in bed thinking about what we want in life and what we wanted was the same. Just like that we were talking about a future together after a week. I felt crazy even overwhlemed with all the feelings I had after just one week. 

We decide to tell others about our engagement after just one month. People thought we were crazy but we wanted to get married as soon as possible. 
We set the date for just a month after. We pulled through too. We put together a beautiful wedding in one month thanks to all our family and friends help.

It has been three short months of marriage but its the best choice I ever made. He loves me for me and he took responsilbility for my son. Seeing them together, laughing and playing makes me feel so good. Then there is the times where he will just look at me and I get those nervous butterflies just because I never know what he is thinking. But at the same time it makes me feel beautiful. He makes me feel like I am on top of the world, and there has never been a time where I questioned his love for me. He is one of the best men I know and I have him.

I think to myself sometimes why me? what did I do to get blessed with such a wonderful husband. In those times, I thank God and cuddle up to my soulmate the one I wasn't exactly looking for and the one I never thought could happen.

I am thankful that you did what you felt was best. Long courtships and making such a big deal about age differences is a relatively new concept. To truly be happy is a wonderful blessing and the only way we can do that is to find our true selves.

Thank you! My husband is twelve years older than I. I mean to think not even fifty years ago people would meet and get married three days later and be married fifty years and twenty years apart in age.
I am a true love story in the crazy world of today. If someone told me at nineteen I would have a son and be married I never would of believed it. But I'm thankful that others see my life as I do. Your comment really mad night!
