eh...

... two letters formed together to make one word that aptly portrays my feelings for the fact that six years ago today I was divorced. The most upsetting thing, really, is that I thought I would have been re-married with more children six years after the fact.

Facebook is a great social networking tool. It has allowed me to get in touch with friends from high school and college. I can even see pictures of their beautiful kids and charming husbands. I can see their vacation photos and how happy every one looks.

Yeah... eh.

It was 6ish years for me - remember, when you aren't looking for it, it will come and bite you in the...

Hey Cescat. I've never posted before but I'm a regular viewing your blog. Angela M. is right. Not long after I'd quit looking for what I'd thought I was looking for the Lord presented me with my soon to be spouse. Up until then I thought I just had realy bad luck or He wanted me to attemp to enter Holy Orders!

God Bless,
Duck

3 pieces of advice Kat

a) Finish nursing school, as a soon to be RAF officer I can garuntee that my friends and I will be keeping you in business for a long time.

b) keep yourself occupied and your readers entertained with your cartoons

c) Get your Guardian Angel on the phone and tell him he needs to get his act together and FAST:), either that or ask if you can have another one as the one you currently have clearly missed school the day when they're taught how to find a good spouse for their humans.

Dorothy Seraphic was divorced for, um, 12 years, and after much despair and soul-searching and desperate phone calls to religious orders and dating all sorts and so on and so forth, came to the conclusion that being single was actually quite good. A year or two into her new seraphic state, she met the chap she married last year. So don't think "six years! This must mean I'm doomed to single misery! Argh!"

Thank you. I am also "eh" after ten years, although it's six years since I annulled it. Thanks for the hope from the other commenters. And the reminder about my guardian angel - I don't need any help to keep from falling into brooks, so she MUST need something to do!

I am normally a pretty hopeful optomistic person... but even I have my days. Nobody enjoys the annual reminders of our failures. I am in a better mood today.

You will meet your love in Malta.

Signed,

Mimi said...

Prayers.

I could see you with a Maltan husband.

The Crescat said...

Terry and Mimi... U hope you are right. Ooo la la.

Maria said...

I would give anything to have had two children...

Theocoid said...

Or that husband could be someone you know and don't even think about. Let God do His work, and don't overthink it. He set you on the course for a new life, and He always gives us better than what we ask. He did the same for me, and if nothing else, I've gotten an adventure.

Maria, as someone who'd second your comment I feel your pain

The Little Way said...

Pray to St. Raphael. I will add your intention to my prayers to him and all the angels as well.

Failure? How about succeeding in setting things right?

Crescat:

I think that you'll do just fine, seeing as how you're one of Our Ladies faves, anyway.

For me? 10 years. And the only person I would ever think of marrying is too smart to marry me--again.
