If only it were that easy. “As the door slammed on life as I knew it, my feet gave out and I ended up a crying heap on the floor.” “Go tell the house ‘Happy Birthday’ Walter because you can’t be giving this to me.” “Gone was the woman who looked like she dressed in the clothes rejected by the Salvation Army and had never seen the inside of a hairdresser.” “Self-confidence is an amazing thing.” “He has taken my rejection rather badly, so he has been saying nasty things about me to the rest of the staff every chance he gets.” “It was only when one of my sisters saw me in the supermarket just looking at the macaroni and not moving, that someone actually talked to me.” “With the kids in mind I made the decision to have a lovely, live, six-foot Christmas tree decorated with white lights and red accents.” “While I sat on the boardwalk awaiting the fireworks to herald in the New Year, I was forced to think about the past few months.” I told him the most important thing for him to remember was that I loved him. There is a saying “you’re as smart as your smartest friend”. Sometimes you just have to take the time treat yourself. Sometimes you need to stop and think to realize it isn’t worth fitting in with the crowd. The excitement of a day at the horse races. “So skilful were the fingers going over my body I had to go again because some things you just had to do more than once.” “I take the opportunity to go to the beach and sit watching the waves and eventually the sunset.” I refused to let any slick-tongued sales person trick me into getting something I did not want. Somehow the sordid details of my impending divorce made its way into the office. I started by planting a small garden. Walter is a cheater and no matter what she does he is going to keep cheating. I was going to look at everything with a fine tooth comb. Her words were what I needed to hear. It’s about knowing which guy deserves which answer. Sometimes you need to be different. If your name starts with ‘W’ I’m sorry but goodbye. When something in bugging you sometimes you have to just let it come to you. “I let him know in no way, form or fashion did I want anything to do with him.” “I never talked to such a naïve, like I said boy-man.” I encountered a guy I remembered from school days that used to send my heart into a high-speed flutter. Lunch was . . . hummmmmmm. All I can say is this guy really knows how to treat a lady. We ended the night walking along the sand hand in hand. Then to my shock my son stepped in front of him. His words floored us all. From my family to yours. Have a Merry Christmas. My idea was to combine my loves and to offer eco-treks to tourists that visited the island. I took them on one of the treks with a medium degree of difficulty. We indulged ourselves in the mysteries of the deep blue. It was up close and personal dancing, with me being cuddled in Mr. Divine’s arms. I pulled her into my arms and it was like trying to hug a piece of board. “Your actions are your responsibility Walter.” I wasn’t having any of that. Things were falling into place. When I went out the door things were settled.
