Thanks for the comments on love and soulmates (previous post)! It's wonderful to hear from people who have found their soulmate :) Long & happy relationships are an inspiration to us all, aren't they? I'm not saying I don't believe in soulmates - more that over the years I've adjusted my ideas on love somewhat. I suppose I'm less romantic than when I was younger and my ideas of what constituted true love then are very different from those I hold now. Two things that have never changed, though, are the facts that Phil & I can talk endlessly about everything and nothing (now that's a good title for a blog LOL) and we never seem to run out of things to say or get bored with each other (ok, maybe I DO Get a bit bored when he starts talking about football!) and he makes me laugh even when I'm at my most grumpy/depressed/miserable! I'm a very lucky girl!
Just some final thoughts/questions...
Can you have more than one soulmate in a lifetime?
What happens if your soulmate doesn't believe in soulmates?
Enough frivolity, I have a serious and sad matter to report. The cold snap caused my pond to freeze and also killed my froggies. The bodies are slowly filling with gas and rising to the surface. I have to fish them out and dispose of them. I'm devastated. I actually recognise some of them. It's tragic and I feel so guilty - I thought they would be safe at the bottom of the pond :(
I'm hoping some new frogs colonise the pond in the spring. RIP my froggy friends - I'm sorry and I miss you!
