    Looks like there are 3 very smart women here: YOU, Bethany & Katy! When things don't work out as we had hoped.....it's not a reflection on us, but a sign of much better to come.

    Oh Michael...your description of how "indescribably precious" the girl in your life was to you...takes my breath away. I have known that degree of love...so utterly treasured and sacred, you can barely speak of it..Thank YOU for opening ur heart.

    Ashley....Sadly, we women can take "nurturing" to a point of regret, foolishly believing Love Conquers All. It doesn't. Those Fairy Tales are LIES. You are now a better, stronger woman. That's what matters.

    Hi Til...Yes, you & Larry are one of the few very blessed, fortunate long-lasting true loves......that I admire and respect. If you ask a lot of ex-wives, they can name that dead horse for you!! LOL

    Vincent...How I hurt for you. I may have said this to U b-4, but I wish I could meet your children and tell them what a wonderful, loving and prolific man they are missing the opportunity to have and to love.

    dashing..a powerful common sense answer. Your last paragraph can strike a Universal nerve....so true & realistic. Those words can serve as a real "Wake-Up Call" to anyone still living in the past!

    Sandy...Karma will catch up with that man for what he has done to keep a son from his Mom. That is the worse child abuse ever. You have the love & happiness you deserve now. Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Thanks for your input. Did someone say, "COFFEE?" Mmmmm. IMO, coffee is the nectar of the gods....the world's most wonderful beverage!
