A little over a year ago, I got together with my girlfriend who is in my life now. She is actually my fiancee. I proposed to her less then 24 hours after meeting her, and she thankfully said yes.
At the time I met my girlfriend, my life had been destroyed. I had been harmed and betrayed by anyone I ever cared about and loved in my life. At that time we began our relationship over a year ago, I was suffering from significant depression, apathy, and flat affect.
So, after I proposed to Carol, we continued to speak for hours every day. In February of this year, I moved near where she now lives. Since then, our relationship has progressed and deepened- well beyond anything I could of imagined. Somehow, she has mended the dark intrinsic state I had for years quite well, and thoroughly.
I make Carol laugh daily, and I clearly have the ability to love her with all of my heart and soul. Even though we speak every day often, I still hand write Carol a letter, and mail that to her house, once a week. Occasionally, Carol writes me back a handwritten letter. This is the latest letter I got from Carol. I'm very glad she allowed me in her life, and apparently, I'm doing as much good for her as she is doing for me:
Hey my love,
Can you believe I got a pen and paper and I'm actually writing you a letter? Surprise/surprise.
Today, I took my mom to run some errends. We stopped at a few grocery stores to buy stuff for the holidays. I helped her pick out a turkey. She said she hopes you like turkey, because it's a 14 pound bird. I am glad she invited you for Christmas day as well. She is not sure will join us for dinner then.
I can't believe we did not argue, my mother and I. Wonders never cease to amaze me, LOL. We got along very well. I helped her get what she needed. She even bought cat food for my p******.
I talked to my daughter Julia's couselor, Mr. Bushman, today. Glad to know Julia isn't the only one having issues in school. I am happy to know that her teacher sees it and together her counselor and teacher are working together to remedy this situation. And this is public school? We talked a lot about Julia and he sees too that it isn't just her who is dealing with the mean girls at her school. He said great things about Julia, and how well of a student she is. That made me very happy. I am glad she goes to a school where teachers want to work with kids who have issues with other students.
I'm happy they added another day to your work schedule. I am hoping you can get 40 hours in this week. I need to go to Milwaukee to drop off paperwork for my background check with my new job. Maybe I can see you afterwards. That would be splendid.
I cannot wait for you to join us at David and Yvonne's house on black Friday. You will have a great time. I just know it. They like to eat, drink, and play various money games. One of the games cost only 75 cents to play, and it is called left, right, and center. What's nice is that anyone can play, so usually there is like 15 people playing at one time. So you have a chance of winning over 10 dollars in the pot. Cool, huh?
I don't say this much, but I sure hope you moving to Milwaukee turned out to be good for you. I know it too some time, but I think things are slowly but surely going in your direction. I just wish you could get more hours at work, but at least soon you may get your own housing. When you do, you must have a house warming party, and you must consummate your place. Hee hee!
Thank you again for being in my life, Dan. You would not believe how happy you have made me. I know I don't always show it, but you mean the world to me. I hope you stay with me FOREVER. But for now, I must pause until I can resume writing you once again. My turn today to pick up the kids from school. I love you very much Dan, and again, THANK YOU,
