Car in the shop

My car is in the shop so I am gazing at rain drops-----No.....I am getting a breather. I haven't been posting a whole lot, but thought about expressing the blessings of having a soul mate for the last 31 years. I happened to read a little this morning in Jan Karon's book called, "A Common Life; the Wedding Story". This made me reflect on how wonderful it is to share a life with someone you enjoy being with and doing things with (I know, I know, you aren't supposed to end a sentence with a preposition!).

It is so nice to have a soul mate. I love having someone to share life with that enables myself to just be myself. I love having a person that shares so many of the same interests and who spiritually can share all kinds of things. It really is like a comfortable shoe ---that always sounds so used, so trite, but how else do you explain just the plain comfort of having a person you can be real with???

Life can be so hard and I am so thankful to have someone who is here with me to travel this life with me----I know we may not have each other for much longer (one just never knows).....but I am so thankful to have another human being to share all of life with (I keep ending my sentences with with!!!---). There is so much right here to be thankful for---what a gift to have a beloved spouse!


  1. What could be better than this? Everyone should have a soul mate. Enjoy your time without wheels.

  2. You are truly blessed to be married to your soul mate for 31 years! That is fabulous. I feel blessed too to be with mine for 26 years! (married 26 years, together for 30).

    Hugs, Sharon

  4. What a beautiful tribute to your marriage, Kim. I am blessed as well, and so thankful.

    It's funny my mother always taught me about prepositions. My teachers did not teach that to me in school. Today more and more people are ending sentences with a preposition. It must drive true scholars crazy.

    Have a pleasant day. Kathi

  5. I agree totally - it is good to have a good friend to live with and shared everything with (yes, I'm ending sentences with with too!).
