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?



Pond death...

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!

I'm very sorry about your frogs. Poor little mites. I hope you'll get more.

I think as we get older and more experienced and settled in life our notions about what constitutes real love change by necessity. I don't know if it is purely a matter of practicality or what. I know I appreciate certain attributes of my husband now that I don't think I was even aware of when I married him.

I suspect the frogs may have died a natural death. We get a few dying in the pond every year (even during the last few mild winters). No reason to feel guilty, I'm sure, and I bet there'll be plenty of youngsters queueing up to take advantage of it in the spring.

If Phil's not your soulmate he comes a good second! :)

I think you can have far more than one soulmate in a lifetime and it doesn't matter if they believe it or not, it's what you think that matters. :)

I think I have to echo Akelamalu's sentiments exactly. I do think I have one of the best soulmates as my husband. 45 years is a long time of marriage but I find I am happiest when I am around Dave.

Awwwww... The frogs are part of the experience of being at your home. I know how fond of them you are.
