To be quite truthful I was brought up the same way That if we arent the same mind frame , that we wouldnt be able to enjoy each other!! And I believed it. Then I got beat up. Stricken almost dead. By the one who was supposed to have loved me for the rest of his life. Then ...something strange and quite lovely happened. The most gentle kind sweet man doted gentle kindness on me and my children. Gentle sweetness we had never known execpt from my parents. Love, Happiness once again shown in my life.... My children LAUGHED!! Laughter filled my home!!! The air sparked. We danced, laughed sang.
