I didn't know ...he would take all this time to set up his chance.
I didn't know ...a married man would do these things.
I didn't know ...why he wanted to show me that movie.
I didn't know ...that my body would betray me, the way it did.
I didn't know ...my mom was tired, the day I told her I wanted to quit scouting.
I didn't know ...I should have told her over and over until she asked WHY.
I didn't know ...when mom said "Well it's your decision, whatever you want to do." she meant that one choice.
I didn't know ...she wasn't telling me to deal with my own problems myself.
I didn't know ...at 13, I was not prepared to deal with all my problems myself.
I didn't know ...how persistence would have changed things.
Shawn and Ben will always be in my heart....
Happiness is like peeing your pants; Everyone can see it, but only YOU feel the warmth.
