Me and the kiddos

There has been something I have come to grips with over the last couple of years. I am not getting any younger, and while I am not old by any means, I have come to an age where finding a man who has never been married with no kids is harder and harder to do. I didn't really know how I would really feel about that until Jason started talking about his kids. When we started dating, I knew he was a dad, but it never really seemed real until the night I met them. It took us a little while before I was ready to go meet Jordan and Sophia. I think he wanted to make sure I was going to be ok with it before he introduced us. It is a tricky situation, and I am sure as a single parent, it is an interesting tight rope to walk. What if I introduce everyone and this person decides it is not what they want? Well, one Thursday, Jason decided it was time and asked me if I wanted to come over and hang out. I had begun to feel like I was missing out, every time he had the kids I didn't get to be…

And then two people fell in love.....

As many of you might know, something really neat happened in my life about 4 months ago. I was reunited with an old friend, Jason Whitehead. Jason and I knew each other back in our younger days in the IBC youth group and had a "thing" for each other (then didn't, then did, then didn't, then did) for years. He was my very first boyfriend and was the first guy I ever held hands with! When we were younger, I had an issue with being in a relationship and even though Jason cared for me and wanted to be with me, he tells me now he knew I had "committment issues" (as many as I could have at the ripe old age of 13) and knew I wouldn't be someone that would be a good relationship person. So, as time went on, he and I stopped being really close friends. He went to Evangel Temple, me to South, and then onto graduation and beyond. After high school, we lost touch and only saw each other once every few years and random church reunions and an occasional visit to Texa…
