The Wedding: his not mine

My husband got married 20 days ago. I was sitting in a restaurant in Chania,Crete refilling my wine glass while he was probably checking his wedding regalia. You know--the tight pants, the turban with the frill that, on him, looks like it belongs to some giant lizard from Australia. Anyhow, he's not my husband anymore.  And I'm still getting used to the idea despite the fact that he told me he was leaving me, getting married and starting a new family(yes,that was all one conversation)in July of 2007.We were together for 32 years and now that he's remarried, the over-ness of it all and the need to recognize the stunning kindness of friends and family is what has turned me into a blogger.

You are more than a blogger, my friend. You are a force of grace, humor, and some other third thing (because we readers like things in 3's). While I find the image of the tight pants and lizard-esque turban disturbing, it is a small price to pay for the smile I get every time I read anything you write.

Resiliency! That's the third thing.

Please-keep "resilling"...

Yippee! That's for blogging, so that I can selfishly read your writing all the time, now. I've missed you.

Oh, my God. The lizard-esque turban is so good, so awful, so revolting. I'm not sure that I'll be able to stop thinking about it.

All in one conversation? That man sounds like a lizard, so his attire sounds most fitting for the occasion.

I love your sidebar: This is how my memoir.... You MUST publish it! I will be first in line to buy. Your writing is amazing.

I'm with MommyToTwoBoys - that's quite a hook you've got going there! Going to have a look at some other chapters now. Visiting from Blog Gems.
