Once upon a time long ago a princess (me) and her prince (the Big Guy) lived in a castle (an old two family house). The princess was great (huge) with child and had been sent to bed to await the birth. The prince decided the princess needed total peace and quiet and would not rent out the upper chambers. One day while the prince was sharing his knowledge (teaching) and the princess was resting (watching soaps) a fairy godmother (realtor) who knew of the empty rooms appeared. With her was another royal couple (and a toddler and a cat) from a distant land (job transfer) who were desperate for lodging before winter. This new princess was greater (twins) with child and also needed rest. There was an instant connection between the two princesses and the first princess said "Of course you can all move in!" (And the Big Guy later said "Are you crazy?") But by the New Year the castle sheltered three new babies, a toddler, a cat and a dog. Every day the two princes set off for their duties while the two princesses chatted, laughed and played (and changed diapers) all day!
That was forty years ago and we are all still friends even though we now live in separate kingdoms. We got together and had a great visit this past weekend! Life is a beautiful thing for sure............and the Big Guy isn't always right........
