We all have different jobs of all trades. Everything from the bit fat cat CEO's on Wall Street to the guys who twirl signs for a local mattress store. They are all equally important, and why do you ask? Because they provide us with a paycheck. We break our backs, don't spend time with our families, dedicate a third of our lives just for our jobs. So shouldn't we get the respect we deserve? Sadly it usually doesn't turn out that way. We want that paycheck so bad that we would follow their rules, put our values aside, and loose our rights.
When my mother and father first divorced I adjusted to it in a strange way. My dolls in my dollhouse never had the dad, he always lived in a shoe box or on a shelf in my closet. Other than that I was fine with adjusting to having to go to my fathers every other weekend and only having a stuffed dog and a box of crayons at his house. But my mother told me something when I got older that I thought was strange and a little sweet. I never wanted my mom to marry again because I thought that meant they would leave us. Now I know that is common for young children to assume. My mother ended up with this man who later became my step dad and like most step parents, you don't truly see them for how amazing they can be until you're grown up.

So when you find that special someone, the one that no one compares to and you will forever hold a torch for, that is your great white buffalo. But some also say that it's the person that got away. That's where my story begins. When I met him.
Everyone knows you can't put a price on life's moments, but we have a habit of letting them slip by anyway. With today's busy schedule and need to pay bills, we find ourselves on auto pilot and miss out on the simple things. More importantly life's most precious and priceless moments.
