"The Real Men Come After College"

OMG! I’m so thankful for my Mother pounding that in my brain for many years!
I had a marriage when I thought I was grown up at age 18 and finished college on my own.
After all, I was full grown! LOL!
No one from my family attended that wedding it should have been a sign of the tears.
My Mom died of Cancer at the end of those 5 years.
After her funeral on the long journey home.
My mind raced with thoughts of all the things she had tried to instill in me as I was growing.
I decided divorce was a good choice immediately, without even so much as proper legal advice.
Looking back now, I’m glad I didn’t think twice.
God blessed me back at the time.
I didn’t have any children with my first husband and I left him with the house and not more than a dime.
Starting over was hard, but the choices you make in life are far worthwhile.
I started over and found a new man later on.
God Blessed me with a wonderful man, and three children I wish my parents could have been around to pass some of those sayings along.
The most important one I try to instill is the “Real Men and Women in your life come after college”
The reason I finally figured out, is by the age you finish properly, not the way I worked and finished school. You have and they’ve grown to have more relationship knowledge.
So, I’ll pass that little one on from my family book to those out there.
My husband and I have celebrated 22 years of marriage this year and I’m so proud that he is the one that I’m here with and have my life and children to share.
