A good man


A very good man


I am blessed as my husband is a very, very “good man” indeed.

He always behaves honestly and honourably and I marvel at the admiration I still feel for him after these eleven years of marriage.


His Father was also a very good man and we have had good reason to reflect on this of late.


Our lives are full of uncertainty , we have been on a rollercoaster ride full of hope and disappointment and now for a moment, hope again. Through all of this my boy has been stoic and wise and good humoured and true and I? A rudderless ship bounced around on the tides of fortune have been elated and battered by equal measure and still he steadies me and guides me home to safety.


Thank you my love.


The Moment


The moment when, after many years
Of hard work and a long voyage
You stand in the centre of your room,
house, half acre, square mile, island, country,
knowing at last how you got there, and say “I own this”


an extract from The Moment by Margaret Atwood.

  4. I know you know you're a lucky woman and he's a lucky man.
    Your words moved me to tears - I thought I would have such enduring love - but.
    How many women think the same but things change.
    Love to you.

  13. They say good men are hard to find.. I guess there's some truth in that statement. Maybe its' because they are by the sides of the women they love and not " other places " in full view for all to clamor after... I too am blessed with a GOOD MAN...23 years and counting... stay in the moment sarah jane and thank you for the beautiful autumnal tour as well..
    wishing you peace in the moment!
