I Guess I Belong Here Now

With an amazing woman. Exclusive relationship. In many ways I think that I'm a hard match. Grateful that we seem to fit together so well.
Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.

I hope things continue to go great and that we maybe get a pic at some point. Wonderful! :)

Thank you, my dearest Kenneth, for loving me and for giving me the best 13 years of my life.

Thank you for your comments.
Life is good, grateful for that. DD got engaged this weekend. He's a great guy. I really like/get along well with his mom and dad.
I am glad that I have had some experience dating. That experience has been an education and has helped identify what is most important/works the best for me.
This is such a whole new world, especially after being with DW for 28 years. I do believe that going through such a traumatic event as we all have, has the potential to raise us to having a higher appreciation of life and to accentuate our good traits.
Much to be happy about these days...
Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.

Happy to hear it, Mac.  I was surprised by the degree to which I came out of all of this knowing with such clarity and certainty what I wanted and needed.  Almost as surprised as I was to find it. 

Above all else, ENJOY!

I've figured out a bunch what I want and need, but some of that is still a discovery process. I do feel so good about so much. Confidence is on overdrive, trusting in the future and having fun. I wasn't one to worry much before about the future, but now I worry even less.

Still after being married and faithful for 27-1/2 years, this does seem slightly surreal at times. What an unexpected and fun place I find myself in. Along with that, I still sometimes find it strange to realize that I am the only parent that my children have to talk to.

Feeling grateful for much. The life I had with DW. Surviving and thriving after getting though my grief. My enhanced appreciation of life. Having a kind and fun woman in my life. And I am quite curious to see what the future holds.
Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.
