We Met Two Years ago… Today

Out walking on the steps of our first date.

Hello everyone,

I hope all is well with you.

It is a gorgeous day,

here in,

my beautiful ugly.

This is my last week,



Catherine is already on,


We will have one week,


I am looking forward to,

and very grateful for it.

But, today,


is a special day.

Two years ago,

we went on our first date.

It was a suffocatingly hot day,

we walked and we walked,

hoping to find a place for a drink.

But it was the pandemic,

everything seemed closed,

on that Sunday afternoon.

We bought some beers,

at the grocery store,

and we drank them,

in the park,

like teenagers.

We sat 2 meters apart,

we chatted and tried to get,

to know each other.

We had ‘met’ online,

on a singles website,

called Silver Singles,

had been corresponding for,

a few weeks.

The situation was complex,

it was the pandemic,

my mom wasn’t well,

I was involved in a,

complicated long distance,


But, I liked Catherine,

I knew she was special,

smart, fun, caring,

and so darn good looking.

We went on a few dates,

and then my mom died,

I was so confused,

it was such a hard period,

of my life.

She waited for me.

I would write to her,

for Christmas etc.

I didn’t know what I wanted,

I am not proud of some,

of my actions in regards to,

my previous relationship.

But, the best decision I made,

in 2021 was reaching out to,


and moving into the greatest flat….ever

She invited me to an art exhibit,

and the rest as they say,

is history.

Two years ago today,

I met someone special,

two years ago today,

my life changed.

It took me almost a year,

to figure it out.

But, Catherine knew,

she is much wiser than me.

She is a blessing and a joy,

in my life.

I give thanks everyday,

for her,

for us.

Thanks for reading you all.

Be well.

Later girls,
