Second Chances Don't Come Every Day

This is my story. I met my USMC boyfriend when he was fresh out of boot camp. He was home on boot leave. We actually meet in the same bar that his parents met, in the same town my parents met. We fell for eachother. Hard. I had just recently had a baby (that wasn't his) but it didn't matter. He left to go back to Camp Pendleton, and we didn't know when he would be home again. Needless to say, his being gone broke up our relationship. Or maybe it was God's way of telling us it wasn't time for us. He came home in December, and I saw a glimpse of him. By this time I was seeing someone else. 6 months later, I was married. But even through all of that, I still thought about Jared. All the time. I got married for all the wrong reasons. Whenever I thought my husband and I were over, I thought about Jared, even looked him up a few times and talked to him. Well, 3 1/2 years later, I got a divorce. And Jared and I are dating, again. He is still stationed at 29 Palms, CA, but he is due to get out of active duty in 34 days. Then he will be moving back to Michigan. It's Been a rough road, but so worth out. He is the person who makes me feel safe, even from across the country. He knows me better than I know myself. We are a whole bunch of crazy wrapped up together. I want to spend the rest of my life with this man.

Wow, this is inspirational!
I believe that God does everything for a reason.
