Gosh it’s been so long since I posted that I feel I’m hijacking someone elses blog again. :)
I actually find it hard to write when I take these big gaps off blogging. There’s been so many days when I’ve thought, “I might write something today” before I knew it, the day was over and I had written nothing!
Okay where should i start writing from? Hmm, lets go back to Christmas time.
I had a great day with my family and my partner; actually, this year is the first Christmas my partner and I have spent together. You see, he lives in one state and I live in another, so having Christmas together was really nice. He fly’s over to me quite a bit, and I fly with him when I can. He has a job that flies him all around the country and therefore he’s never really in one place for very long.
Can you believe it, he nearly didn’t make it for Christmas as he fell off a ladder only days away from Christmas day! I didn’t think he would come but knowing how disappointed I would be, he flew over. Now that’s pretty good considering he was in hospital over night and could barely walk. His ribs were all bruised and he was really sore, he’s lucky nothing more serious happened to him.
Good news for me is that in the coming weeks he’s moving in with me, we have been together for 17 months now and we feel that we now want to commit to the next level. Oh BTW: I don’t mean marriage! I’m afraid marriage is not for me. Been there done that and I’m not ready to even think along those lines. I left my Ex for all sorts of reasons and one was not trusting him.
Anyway I’ll go back to a happier part of my life and that’s moving in with someone my own age and who I truly love.
I believe we now live in a modern society and I don’t think you need a certificate to prove you love someone. I was once really old fashioned and thought you should marry and you should take the husbands name. Well, not anymore. I have 2 friends that have married and kept their maiden names. I have always thought this was wrong and why bother getting married if you DON’T take their name? But I now know I was wrong again! They love their husbands just as much as those that take their husbands names, so I suppose what’s the difference?
So many people chose to just live together these days that I don’t think it really matters. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not Condoning the Sanctity of Marriage…Not at all! I just think times are changing and we don’t have to be so set in our ways.
People are more open now and not as judgmental…Which I think this is a good thing! Gosh in the old days you would have been shunned for such a thing. It was a pretty cold and cruel world, especially for woman.
All I can say is thank god for the 21st Century!
In saying that I believe we all need to take the path that best suits us and our own individual needs. Because at the end of the day Loving someone and someone loving you is not as easy as it sounds, and especially finding someone you trust! So when and if you are lucky enough to find it again, I think you should hang onto it in any way you can.
So, how do you feel about about people living together, NOT marrying, or marrying and NOT taking their husbands names? Or worse, being with someone younger than your own children. It will be interesting to see how you feel and be completely and utterly honest, I hold no grudges!! Well, So I say!! Lol
Much love to you and Happy Belated New Year to you all!
