To Hearts and Harmony


Well it’s that wonderful day again, Valentine’s Day.  It’s been a day like any other here.  My partner and I love each other very much but we don’t really feel the need to have a special day for expressing it.  I suppose it’s nice to have that one day where you’re shown appreciation but I think those things should happen every day.  Doing things like making each other a coffee or scratching their back are very simple yet very intimate.  I think these small things are what make up the every day of a relationship and it’s these things that are the glue to any relationship.  When you’re upset or angry you should be able to count on your partner to move outside of that and provide what they can by way of comfort and joy.  This is not to say that you can’t ever be at polar opposites of an issue and just can’t seem to find the middle ground but if you are still doing the small things for each other than the big stuff doesn’t seem quite so big.

My partner is fabulous.  She is very nurturing and caring, yet also very down to earth and states what she thinks in no uncertain terms.  There are things that we don’t agree on and when that happens it seems like it’s just a lot of work to get to a point where we can coexist in this melee of opinions.  But then she’ll get me a glass of juice and I’ll put her favourite show on and the other stuff just melts away because we are where we belong.  Together.

We are getting married this year.  I am very much looking forward to celebrating the small things.  Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.  I wish you peace and connection with your loved ones.

Introducing Maria

Hello All.

Well the medical stuff is still up in the air.  I probably won’t get the test I need until March some time.  It’s frustrating to say the least to have to wait like that but I shouldn’t complain too much as our healthcare system is pretty darn good to me.


I recently posted a new link in my list down on the side. Oh yes and I’ve been experimenting with new looks over all.  Please share any feedback if you’d like to about that.  Anyway, the new link is to a wonderful counselor I stumbled upon in my searches.

Individual, Family and Relationship Counselling

She is just starting out in the blogging world.  I consulted her about issues in the past and she’s fantastic to talk to.  I highly recommend keeping up with her blog as I expect the articles will be very insightful and helpful.  Her name is Maria Derubeis and it looks like she works out of Windsor, ON, Canada.  So if you’re in her area you can check her out.  She is versed in many different issues affecting individuals, couples and families.  I hope you get something out of what she has to say.

I’m out for now.  Have a great day!
