Being gay is a gift from God, and I truly believe He wouldn't have allowed my mother to carry me to full term if He was the hateful being some Christians portray him to be. Thank you God, I love you!
Thank you for allowing me be with the man I most admire in this world, my partner Ryan. He has been my sole companion for the past 6-1/2 years and I could never have asked for a better person in my life. The year 2012 is going to be a huge blessing for us. We will reach two milestones we have never faced in our lifetime.
First and foremost, celebrating our 7 year anniversary - something we both have never done. My two longest relationships were each 4 years long, and I never would have imagined that the third time around would have been a charm. And a charm he was. I love you Ryan! Just goes to show that meeting someone online and falling in love is possible.
The second milestone in our lives will be in late June or early July when Ryan and I will officially be out of credit card debt. Now, this may not seem like a big deal for most of you, but for us it is. Since we've been together we have amassed over $60,000 in credit card debt. Don't get us wrong, we don't regret spending any of it, there was good in all of this. We wouldn't have what we have today, if we didn't have the use of a credit card at our disposal. The majority of that money was invested in the remodeling of our home and the purchases we made throughout the years to make our home beautiful inside and out. In either case, to say we will not shed tears come June or July is an understatement. This is a big deal for us. We will shed tears, because for the first time in our lives every bit of cash we garner from work will go towards building our future home, our eventual marriage and fulfilling our dream of spending the rest of our lives together.
I would also like to take this time to wish a Happy New Year to our loving families, both of who support mine and Ryan's relationship, our dear friends (you know who you are), the readers of my blog, my co-workers, and to all the people on Facebook who have taken the time to say hi, wished me happy birthday, and became friends with me even if they had no clue who I was. :-)
May God Bless all of you in 2012! Happy New Year!
