Odd memory

I had the strangest memory pop into my mind this morning.  An acquaintance was asking me about the 5th anniversary of my divorce (which was yesterday).  I know this person from a civic club that we were both involved in. That brought to my mind a memory I had long since forgotten.  I first joined…

So many memories

When people find out I’ve been divorced for almost 5 years, they all ask me why I’m not dating. They don’t understand that I’m just not ready. I was with my ex for 30 years, from the time we dated, until the time she left me. That is over half my life. 3 wonderful decades,…

It’s been four years

Four years ago today my world as I knew it ended. Yeah, pretty strong words. We walked in to the Dallas County Courthouse, met my lawyer then went before the judge. In ten minutes, it was done. We were no longer husband and wife, but two ordinary people. We left the courthouse and she walked…

Did I give up?

Pearls

In less than two weeks, I will “celebrate” my 30th Wedding anniversary. Just because I am now divorced does not mean that I can not acknowledge a monumental event in my history. No matter what my ex-wife thinks, says or does, its still “our” anniversary, and it will always be. But in knowing that I…
