Our Oasis

We both have times we need to escape our worries. So we slip into the warm water and find each other. It’s an exquisite sanctuary, a serene blissful state. It’s there for those days when we are too tired to think…we just want to hold each other and be warmed by this love. I could […]

How Does Illness Effect Your Sex Life?

Well, perhaps that it is a little silly of me to start this post with a question like that. The truth is, I have no idea about your sex life. I actually was intending to write about my own sex life. Why am I doing this right now, in the middle of my meecrowahvey treatment? […]

A Little Tender Care

Not sure if this time week I will be able to stand up straight, or wiggle my toes, or brush my own hair, or button up my raincoat. But I know that I feel safe and loved. That’s all that matters some days. The rest….I can wait for. The rest I can be patient in […]

I don’t want any distance, any division, any difference to cause the two of us to weaken our bond. I don’t want stress, tension, challenges to cause us to grow weary of each other. I want to stay close to you, because you mean so much to me. I want to be right here with […]

I’m Listening

I am sure they taught us at school that sound is essentially a vibration. Vibrations, waves – they are good words in light of what happened to my heart this week. Well this week I heard and listened to sounds that were new to me, sounds that sent vibrations through my heart, ripples and waves […]

Thank You For Three Wonderful Years

I remember it like yesterday. That eventful day when Ben finally told me how he felt. At first I did not believe him, but then it started to click. After all, he had been following me around like a puppy for the past couple of years. He had never tried to make a move on […]

I Am Frightened

I am finding it hard to write about this. But I am frightened. Please hold my hand. Please tell me wonderful things about love and romance and adventure. Distract me. Please. Take my mind away from hospitals and surgeons and all sorts of scary possibilities. I am so tired. But I cannot sleep because I […]

Afternoon Naps

For many months I have been limited by pain and found my energy levels dwindling. By the time you read this post I will hopefully have left hospital after the surgery scheduled to remove a very unwelcome invader that has been growing in my lower back and causing crazy pain and all sorts of havoc […]
