My boobs are: Ha! Ha! Talk about spitting peach tea on the computer screen...I didn't, but almost. Let me see. What can I say here to finish this? I am nearly 63 years old. I nursed a baby. I have gained a bit of weight over the years. Okay, maybe more than a bit. My boobs hang down to my waist. Well, maybe not quite, but you get the idea? They are not worth talking this much about. So moving on..
My heart is: Ah, now this is more like something I can discuss. My heart if full. It is big. It is aching. This has been a rough week here at my house. Sunday night I was sure that my husband was dying. And today he is better. We are on the roller coaster ride of our lives. And I am not exaggerating to say that it is killing me. The highs and the lows. The speed and the curves. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Yet I know that everyday there is someone else on this same roller coaster ride that I am on. And it makes my heart ache.
One thing every woman should know: I just wrote a post on 7 things everyone should know. You can read it here. But the one thing that I think every woman should know (if she is married) is what shape is she in financially should she suddenly find herself without her spouse. Whether it is divorce, death, or long-term illness...will you be able to survive it? Every woman should know what she will do if (and when) that time comes.
My breakfast typically consists of: Now this one is easy. I am NOT (and never have been) a breakfast person. So my breakfast typically consists of several cups of coffee laced with French-vanilla cream. I will eat something around noon. And I am not going to change this late in the game. I am a nurse so I know all about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. See the problem is that I worked 11 pm to 7 am for more than 25 years. I could never figure out when I was supposed to eat breakfast. So I didn't!
I am so glad that I learned the secret to: marriage. The secret is that there isn't a secret. You pronounce it to the world when you take your marriage vows. You promise to love and cherish, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, until death do you part. It is as simple as that. I am on my second marriage and I didn't take those vows seriously during that time. I bailed when times got bad. Sometimes you have to do that to save yourself. There are certainly times where bailing is necessary. I do not believe you have to stay in a marriage that is bad. But I do believe that you should make sure that for whatever reason you are leaving you have tried your hardest to honor your vows. I did that the first time. And I am doing that now. In doing that, I have discovered the secret to marriage. It isn't a secret at all.
