Our Perfect Union

The Sandbox Writing Challenge-Exercise 8

If it’s Tuesday it must be The Sandbox Writing Challenge time! Thank you so much to everyone who participated last week. There were some terrific posts. You guys are all PONDERERS!

This week’s writing challenge is a little more thought provoking. We all have our ideas about it, but after reading this prompt I realized mine were actually pretty vague — if I have any ideas about it at all! And yet it’s there in the back of my mind because I can definitely tell when I violate my own ideals! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

So tell us, would you please, what is YOUR idea of…

As always, remember to include a link to this post on YOUR blog post. Or if your response isn’t overly long, feel free to leave it in the comment section below. If you would like to play with us and see the previous prompts, they’re listed in the menu at the top of the blog in The Sandbox Writing Challenge.But please feel free to just jump in wherever we are at the moment! After all the prompts are really for YOU to get to know YOURSELF! So put your thinking caps on and have fun!!!


Perfect: entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings

Perfection: the state or quality of being or becoming perfect.

My idea of perfection, or lack there of…….Mine and Jims relationship. It was, in fact, perfectly imperfect.

We came together as 2 individually broken people. From that first day on the boat together in May 2002, the brokenness that brought us together began the infusion that would eventually turn the we we were, into an US. We came together and shared our strengths and weaknesses, our flaws, our mistakes. We loved each other hard and we loved and accepted each other not only in spite of our imperfections, but because of them.

Whenever an EHarmony commercial would come on tv, we’d laugh, knowing full well if we had filled out their compatibility questionnaire we would never have been matched.

I was Blessed with 14 + years of an imperfectly perfect relationship with my perfectly imperfect man……………….together in our hearts we were and in my heart…Still ‘Perfection’.

  1. You have such a wonderful perspective on relationships. At first it was just in regards to you and Jim, but I see that blossoming into your other relationships now, too. It’s a lesson Jim gave you that you’ll always be able to use. 🙂 ❤ (Gotta ask this, though: You lived hard, loved hard — did you fight hard, too??? 😀 Be honest! LOL)
