Sunday Writing Prompt “Soul Mates”

The Challenge:
Do you have reoccurring dreams about a particular person (known or unknown)? When you think about what you are looking for in a life partner does a particular image come to mind? What characteristics are you looking for in said partner? Have you ever encountered someone and felt an instantaneous and inexplicable bond with that person reciprocated or not? What does soul mate mean to you? Do you just know where someone is/what they are doing/feeling intuitively? Have you ever felt the presence of someone who wasn’t physically in the room?

Swans mate for life. These are my pictures from my trip to New Zealand in 2010.

I did a post on this when I first started my blog. You can read it here.

Hubby is my soul mate. He advertised for one and got me. We hit it off straight away and got married exactly two years after our first meeting in 1989. It was a good move.
Coming from totally different backgrounds, I don’t think there is any way either of us could have imagined the other for a life partner. We don’t have the same taste in music or films, though they do overlap sometimes, and these days our eating habits are different due to health issues.
Our strength is that we are a good team. We work well together, seeing a different approach to problems and coming up with solutions, some of which are completely out of the box or even off the wall.
It’s not all a bed of roses though, we have disagreements like everyone else but a mutual respect for the other’s point of view and thus agree to differ.
We always know when something is on the other’s mind, and equally know that when they are ready, they will talk about it. We have worries and concerns, but I know this, had he not been by my side through my cancer, my attitude and acceptance of the situation may not have been as it was.
My world would be a sadder and empty place without him being a part of it. He is more than my husband. He is the other half of 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.

  1. Swans and penguins mate for life. The pictures are so beautiful. Ohh, that’s such a sweet tribute to your husband. Team work is very much required for a relationship. Hope you and your family are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.

  2. Sadje says:

    You guys are the perfect couple.

  3. What a beautiful tribute to your husband. I met my husband online, and I thank God nearly eveyday that he looked past race and saw a soul mate.
