The problem with social media is the temptation to look is always there and in most cases it is not edifying, helpful, or good for you current relationship. Luckily Harry and I are solid as a rock and Harry finds Slimeball’s posts almost as entertaining as me.
🙂 I love my kids. A few more years, maybe only a few more months and everything is going to change. I’m ready for it. But I sure do relish nights like tonight.
You know that moment when you’re in a relationship and something happens that feels eerily familiar? Like something that happened to you in a previous relationship? I have very little experience in this phenomenon because I married the first man I ever loved.
Much of the changes that have taken place in my life since has felt like they were taking place in a vacuum. I’ve somehow managed to get away from the chatter long enough to ask myself some hard questions and listen to my answer and not anyone else. And the results have been interesting.
On the outside it may seem suspect. I don’t think I have the ability to explain the peace I feel this time and how different it is. This time there is not one ounce of doubt. Is it a spell? Is it some blindness I have? Have I been fooled again? I said next time I would resist, next time I would be smarter, next time…
Lots of people I know are going through lots of hard things. My colleague who is ill with cancer is not improving. He smiled one day after 5 weeks in […]
I can’t put into words how I feel about Harry but there is something very different about it. I was preparing dinner when he got to the house and he opened the door and said, “Honey I’m home.” He was a complete vision of everything I wanted in that moment. Strong, manly, handsome, sexy, loving, caring, did I say sexy? Yeah. He feels like family to me. Like home. He lifted me into his arms and we kissed and I thought again, “Am I dreaming? Can this really be happening? This is really going to be real?”
My Harry has two ex’s. Well, three… Well, more if you count girls he just dated and didn’t have long-term relationships with. Sometimes the thought of it makes me feel uncomfortable. I hate the idea of being compared. Yet, it is human nature. Yet I hate it. Yet, I’m curious. Super curious. Not crazy about the idea of bumping into any of them, but I’m not afraid of it either.
So sometimes in the midst of our long conversations, I sometimes cringe as I listen to him explain how “things were.” Thank God we are both sensitive about the issue and mature in how we discuss such things. And I have to say I’ve learned a lot about him.
There is a certain smell in a used car sales office. Men sit behind desks and look at screens and smile and shake their heads. You sit on a chair […]
I’ve been there done that…I’ve experienced me trying to make something work come hell or high water with Martin. I too, strived so hard in my marriage to make that work. I believe in commitment – don’t get me wrong. Being committed takes two though. When one person betrays another…it just can’t happen the way it’s supposed to.
I pray every single night that doesn’t happen to me and Harry. No betrayals. Mistakes? Sure. Forgiveness? In abundance. But God please…no betrayals.
