This was in my Suddenly Senior newsletter today, and it is so true that I had to share~
Please go to Judy Gruen's site to read the rest. It is so true, yet so funny, that I nearly fell out of my chair laughing~
I know. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen one other. Things were certainly strained between us when you finally left for leaner pastures.
But I am not too proud to admit that I (and several articles of clothing in my closet) still miss you, sometimes desperately.
Perhaps I should have seen the early warning signs when you were slipping away from me, one belt loop at a time. With every extra bite of brownie or serving of mashed potatoes, I must have been pushing you away from me. But must we be like so many other modern relationships, transient and shallow? Can we not begin again?
