Shaun is everything I wanted with Joey. He is what I thought I found in Ray. We both didn't expect to be where we are today after reconnecting for the first time in years. This weekend we'll be finishing up moving him in. He has basically lived with me for awhile but we wanted to ask Ally's permission before making it official. It warms my heart how he puts her first and didn't find it silly that I asked her for permission. She said yes and that she loves him. They are like best friends and I'm so glad she has found a companion. I love everything about Shaun. From cooking together, binging our shows, family time. Everything feels secure and we are both committed to our future. We are both willing to do what it takes to make it work and to see us reach our happily ever after.
I don't have to lie about my life. I don't have to pretend to be happy because I truly am happy. I fed into a post yesterday just simply because I am tired of people thinking it's okay to lie to Allisun. She's five. I can't stress that enough. She doesn't deserve to be thrown in the middle of this mess. I don't need a sugar daddy. I have the real deal. My ride or die. We scrape by financially but as I taught Ally today; what matters is that we have a roof over our heads, food in our stomaches, and clothes on our back. We don't need our nails done or expensive toys. What I'm teaching her is more important than anything. You have to appreciate what you have before you can ask for anything else.
