Thanks Shuabby for the thoughtful input! We both need time to digest all the curveballs that life throws our way before jumping too soon. I never in all the time that I had known him expect this to happen. Maybe thats why that I am a bit cautious when it comes to my feelings. . He has directed this to go in a direction more than I had expected. So for now, I'm just enjoying the this time and seeing where it will go. I guess I'm just trying to avoid a situation dangerous to the heart. I truelly think that neither one of us has ever thought that the situation would be what it is. Blessings~
