Father’s Day After

Father’s day is over, but I want to dedicate this space to honor the father of my beautiful children.  It was with great disappointment that I had to face the fact that I married someone so different from my expectations.  How did I get over it? SIMPLE…DEAL WITH IT…..it isn’t so bad dealing with each other’s differences and laugh at the things that make us so different.

                                                 ME: I like peanut butter

                                                 HE: mayo is what I prefer

                                               ME: I eat everything but beef

                                               HE: A meal is perfect with beef

                                           ME: And I like quite a dinner together

                                           HE: conversation is what makes dinner lighter

                                           ME: I hate cracking jokes

                                           HE: Jokes is my life I guess

                                   ME: I’ll always ask for directions

                                   HE: finding my way is my choice

                                  ME: I like a walk in the mall

                                  HE: I would rather run and stroll              

                         ME: while I’m piling on the comforter

                         HE: I lay there bare and in comfort

                         ME: while I’m reading poetry

                        HE: I’d rather be watching tennis


TOGETHER: we’ve got differences wherever we turn, but still we stay together cause there’s a lesson to learn, that if we’re in every way the same, one of us would not be needed, and wouldn’t that be a waste?
