Accomplishments in this life, that don’t produce life, are extremely temporal in the big picture.
God blessed me with a sweet gorgeous woman when I was determined to stay single. She was just too awesome to pass up. 41 yrs of marriage and she’s still a doll! Still a superlative cook! Still slim and trim! And loves being a mother and grandmother! (And I think she still loves being a wife, lol)
When I had just gotten my drivers license, my mother (RIP) talked to me in private. With her lazer locked look at me, I could tell this was serious. She said, “a girl will try to get you to do things you shouldn’t do. Or you could could do things that are not respectful to a girl. Do you you understand?”
I knew exactly what she meant, and said “yes, Mom”. I knew my parents marriage was not good by that time. And that little talk stayed seared in my head as if I had been branded.
A late bloomer, by the time I turned 19, I had no trouble attracting very attractive young women. The trouble was I would draw the line (which was sometimes almost at the point of no return), and cause them to stop seeing me and move to more willing men. At 24, I met my lovely 20 yr old virgin. We got married and learned the real deal together. The best is worth the wait.
I would post pics on my home page, but I haven’t bothered to learn how. I’m very pleased with the family that God has blessed me with!
