A few funny things to ponder.

Lego people live in houses made out of their own flesh.
The word “Verb” is a noun.

THE GENTLEMEN IN MY LIFE
Lorie Ann McReynolds
The first man to capture my heart was my daddy. You could say I was a daddy’s girl. Whenever he had places to go on Saturdays, I would always tag along. Just me and my daddy. I loved playing Checkers with him even though I seldom, if ever, won. Those were the best times. My big brother was the next guy that I loved. He is 10 years older than me. He was the best. I thought he was so cool driving his ’69 Chevy Camaro. He even took me cruisin’ one night along hamburger lane. (Now I am showing my age.)
I had several romances in my life. Some good, some not so good. But then I was blessed with a son, Dakota. That is when I knew what unconditional love was. I would have done anything for that little boy. I remember my mom saying, “Wait till you have kids and then you will understand.” Boy was she right. The worry and tears and joy and laughter — all of it was so worth it. I am very proud of him and the man he has become.
The next man in my life is truly a gentleman, my boyfriend, Tim. Again, I am blessed. He has captured my heart. As of this writing we have only been dating for four months but it seems like we have known each other for so much longer. He is so kind and patient. He reminds me a lot of my dad. He is a hard worker, honest and loves with all he has. He also has a son, Eli. I am enjoying getting to know him. He is very smart and makes me laugh. Tim is making sure Eli knows what a gentleman is supposed to be like.
I am fortunate to have been surrounded by such wonderful gentlemen. All of them have made such an impact on my life. I am grateful for the memories and excited to make new ones.
