He's my Jack Bauer, "24" and "7"
Several years ago I watched my first episode of "24" and I have been a fan ever since. For those not familiar with the show, I'll brief you...it is called "24" because there are 24 episodes in a season. Each episode is supposed to represent an hour in real time where the hero, Jack Bauer, is sacrificing his own life hourly to save the world. I must say it is a little too violent some times. Being someone that has craved peace my entire life, you probably would not expect me to partake of such a show...BUT...it's the hero, the knight in shining armor, Jack Bauer...that I'm drawn to. God has blessed me with my own "Jack Bauer" and his name is Mike. Recently I told him, "Thank you for making me feel safe and protected all these years". You see, that was very important to me. I grew up in a home without a father figure until I was 13 years old and until that time I very seldom felt "safe". That changed when I met Mike, I have felt secure and protected at all times, but even beyond that...I have shared laughter that I had not known before and felt loved immensely. Thank you my sweet man for being my hero!
