If Only…………

We have a House Motto…. a novelty mass produced postcard we bought on holiday many years ago which has pride of place in the kitchen. It goes

A little love, a little kindness,

A little hug, a little smile,

A little thank you, a little forgiveness,

A little understanding, a little kiss.

Hubby and I celebrate a quarter of a century together next year, which I suppose seems to be quite a feat these days. As with most couples over time though, we’ve become more like an old pair of comfy slippers and I tend to forget to say the important things sometimes.

So Honey, this is for you (and all those partners of ‘absent minded’ partners like me)

WARNING: SENTIMENTAL

If Only……………

 heart

 Love could pay the bills, we’d live in a mansion

kises

Kisses were water, we’d never be thirsty

smile

 Smiles were sunshine, we’d be permanently tanned and warm

hug

 Hugs were food, we’d dine like kings every day

dinner dress

Trust was material, we’d be wearing the finest clothes.

slippers

 Tolerance was shoes, our feet would never hurt.

friends

 Loyalty was building friendships, our house would never be empty.

dreams

 Dreams were currency, we would always have more than enough.

bride and groom

I have all of these things………………..with You.

 XX

 

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
