I asked Frans what he felt we should blog about today and he said ‘companionship’. One thing that has happened to us over the time that we’ve been here is that we’ve become even better friends than we were before.
I see so many examples of fractured and broken relationships everywhere I go and it absolutely breaks my heart. I so long to find a way to help everyone to have better relationships, wether it be between husband and wife, parents and children, friends, work colleagues or even just the causal contact we have with so many people, every day.
Something Frans and I have learned in our relationship is to cherish each other. We have made it a point to remind ourselves about what we love in each other as opposed to concentrating on what’s irritating us.
We just love spending time with each other because we feel totally safe in each other’s company – and that, in my opinion, is what it’s all about. When we find someone who keeps our heart safe, we’ve hit the jackpot. Even greater than that is deciding to BE someone who keeps someone else’s heart safe.
I am Frans’ ‘safe place’ and he is mine
My favourite… meal of the day
Longhorn Steakhouse – Absolutely the best steak I’ve ever eaten in my life. Grilled to perfection, salty crust and seasoned with butter. Just fabulous.
Question of the day
How can you be someone’s ‘safe place’? It’s vital!
