Last year I didn’t like the message in my cookie…..you can read about that here:
Bev and I went for Chinese food the other night and I got a fortune cookie as usual……
“The love of your life will appear in front of you unexpectedly!”
Hmmmm…..what does that mean? I know these are just for fun, but every now and again you get one that you do have to wonder about…..like the one in that other post.
This new one could mean a few different things:
- I’m going to see a ghost
- I’m doing to die
- Some tall dark (or grey) handsome stranger will come along
Those are the first things that popped into my head.
As much as I’d love, in all my heart, to see Ken again, I hope it’s not 1 or 2. And at this time of my life I don’t want a 3.
I can’t even imagine sharing my life with someone else right now. I’ve just barely made it to where I am at this point…..getting used to it. I think someone would just complicate things more. I’m slowly settling into this new normal, accepting it for what it is and making the best of it. And I kind of like being on my own now…..I do what I want, when I want. I’m my own boss…..whatever I do, or don’t do, I’m the only one responsible for it and I’m the only one I have to answer too. That’s not a bad thing at all.
Sometimes it would be nice to have someone to go out with but it’s not someone new I want to do that with.
After being married for eons and getting that “happy wife, happy life” thing down pat with Ken, I’d have to start all over again. I have a lot of bad habits and/or quirks, that he just accepted over the years, and vice versa, so we were content and comfortable in our relationship. We didn’t need to put on a show for each other, or anyone else….we were just us and pretty darn happy with that!
I know widows/widowers do meet new people and have relationships, even get married, and live happily ever after, I’ve met a few of them.
I also know you should never say never…….
