A change of heart?

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a piece of paper that’s partly scorched at the top. The intact part shows a quote written on it;

“ Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy or boast. It’s not proud, rude, or self-seeking. It is not easily angered and keeps no record of past mistakes. It does not delight in evil. It rejoices in the truth”

If only.
Love is neither patient or kind. Well, not this love.
He envied popularity and boasted about his success, strutting around like a fantailed peacock, demanding attention and heaven help anyone who stood in his way.
And his temper? Ye gods, always just beneath the surface and he’d never let you forget if you cocked up once in a while.

Oh the delight in burning his words of ‘love’ as written at the beginning of our affair. Then I changed my mind. I wonder if his wife would rejoice in this truth?

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.
