I simply cannot express....


how blessed I feel....

My sweetie
(and I mean sweet)
brought me roses
today
for no apparent reason.

Now,
 before you roll those eyes
and think....
Yeah, right.....
no apparent reason...
wonder what he is up to....
smirk..

I would think the same thing,
if
I was younger.....
less aware.....
naive...
or
stupid....

You see
me and my sweetie...
well,
we weren't born
yesterday...
in fact
we have driven
 around this block
many times before....

He has been
single....
married....
widowed...
married a bit more
and
divorced...
and 
then
he
was
found....



by
me.

That's it.

And
me...
well
let's just say
my story is not that different
from his.


We
have experienced
a lot of heartache...
caused a bit...
and
are healing.
together.


So you see
these roses
are not
to make up...
ward off anger...
soothe feelings....
or even
divert attention...


Nope,
they are from one old soul
to another.

  5. Gorgeous flowers, and I loved this post! Some days I wish for a bit of my youth back, but what you described in this love letter (I hope you husband reads it as it really is a love letter) is why in reality I wouldn't switch places with the old me!
    Enjoy your beautiful flowers and your sweet husband!
