Tuesday Photo Challenge – Build

Details of Frank’s Challenge is here:
It doesn’t matter what you build, it has to have good foundations.
Footings need to be dug sufficiently deep for walls or houses to remain standing whereas trust, truth and honesty relate to relationships.

How many times have people been duped by what appeared to be, rather than what actually was. Or was it because they were looking for something that wasn’t there in the first place and it was just a case of wishful thinking.
I can hold my hand up to that one, thinking it romantic that my ex-husband-to-be slipped a note until my cashier window inviting me out , then on our wedding night discovering it had been written by his sister and it had all been a dare.
That provided the first brick in my protective wall, and over the years, it grew pretty tall.

Hubby met me when I was at my lowest.
We became friends because that was all we had to offer as we both had emotional baggage.
We trusted each other, we talked and shared our worries, supported each other with no hidden agenda. What you saw was what you got, there was no need for lies, deceit or false promises.
We still don’t know when the slushy stuff crept up on us, but suddenly we were a twosome, a double act, soul mates and partners. Our roots together were solid, we had grown together, intertwined and become inseparable.
Perhaps we had to destroy the past before we could build our future. We couldn’t change anything that had happened, but Hubby sums it up extremely well:
“Our life started when we met”.
That’s good enough for me.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
