The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

Fable of the porcupine December 8, 2010

It was the coldest winter ever – many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions, even though they gave off heat to each other. After awhile they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

Moral of the story:
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but the best is when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.

    Hey there. Found your blog from a comment you made on mine. Really appreciate your emotional support on that issue…which I see you’ve also gone through. 😦 Looking forward to reading your blog!

    I think this is a very true moral. I have problems all the time with my closest friends–we’re always unintentionally hurting each other–but because we want to be friends we’ve learned to forgive and forget. I hope your friend is also willing to forgive your misstep.
