not sure it would do any good, Esposa. some things you have to discover yourself. even with all the good discussion here, not sure i'd have gotten it even a few months ago.
Thanks for the encoragement, tho- and you too Jim and Good Hope
Weird thing tho - our perceptions are so different: she said it was like starting to turn an oceanliner - it will take a while to see the results... while i felt like i had just made an abrupt U-turn. a beginning for her, a HUGE reversal for me.
Maybe that is significant - and one of the problems in relationships - the difference in perceptions between partners on what is an insignificant thing and what is a BIG DEAL?
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
