How does it happen so fast??

Can it really, truly be said that love, when its right and true, happens seemingly overnight?? I swear. The man I am seeing, who I do love very much, seems to have just dropped out of the sky and into my life. Along with his two children, ages 14 and 12. And though its only been five months, I have the feeling that he's going to propose at Christmas. This year. It frightens and gladdens me all at the same time to believe that I will be a married woman, when just last year I had given up. Of course, he may not propose this Christmas. I just have... the vibe. You know??
Anyway I am really doing what I can to just roll with this and not fight it and scare him away. His son, who is twelve, has taken a particular shine to me, which is wonderful and amazing. His daughter is being a typical, normal teenager and is saying little about how she feels about me and the potentiality of my moving in with them, bringing my two cats to add to their two (ohhhh boy) and generally making their lovely home just a wee bit more crowded. Can it really happen like this though?? Is this really the work of God?? It seems to be. Still, the very idea of getting married scares me, and the image of me in a long white gown standing at the altar makes my stomach churn. Is this normal?? I feel like I've been dropped on to the Audubon in a car with no brakes and no idea of my final destination. Any advice?? This is the first time I have ever been in love. The real thing. Thanks!!
