New Beginnings

Last night, the man I married 15 years ago, got down on bended knee, in a packed restaurant, presented me with a beautiful ring and asked me to marry him again......for a new beginning, for forgiveness, for our family to be rebuilt, for a chance for us to grow and learn from our past mistakes, for the opportunity to fulfil the lifelong dreams we made together, for a Part 2 to our story.

I said yes.

And then coughed for about 10 minutes. I am so sick.

But happy.

A-M xx

  130. Dear A-M,
    OMG,
    What a wonderful shock this is.
    I am so happy for you and your boys. I am so glad there is space in your heart to forgive, (hopefully forget) move on with your life and find happiness with someone you loved for so long.
    The universe sometimes deals a strange hand. I think second time round, you are different, stronger, more self assured person and can take anything that the universe throws at you.
    Embrace ever moment of your lives together, appreciating the good, the difficult and the differences in each other. We are all unique and life really is just about LOVE.
    Happy, happy life to all for the future.
    I am smiling from ear to ear.

    Big hug,
    Warm wishes,
    Daryl

  159. Dear AM

    I've only commented once on a blog - and it was yours when you first let us know that your heart was broken. It's only fitting that my second ever comment is to let you know how truly delighted I am with your wonderful news. It just shows that you never know where life will take you - and that the dignity and grace you have displayed through all of this has taken you to a new chapter in your life. How exciting for your husband to win back a new and improved wife! He's a lucky man indeed. Thanks for sharing your news - warms the cockles!!

Actually now i think about it, not surprised, i thought, when you showed that little snippet of happiness, saying your son wanted to see a photo of you (when you were overseas) on his Daddy's phone, it was beautiful, natural & not at all cringe-spite-awkward filled at all. Congratulations, you know how much i love LOVE, love Posie
