This post was written in response to Linda G. Hill’s weekly Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week it’s “man.” Use it as a word by itself or find a word with “man” in it. Have fun!
Manu and Me
My husband is called Manuel, but I call him Manu. We met in 1978.
Over the last 39 years we’ve done many things, including working hard, having three children, buying a house and making a comfortable home for us and our children.
We’ve had good times and a few rainy days.
I’ve mostly forgotten the bad times. Perhaps they weren’t that bad anyway.
We’ve made lots of journeys together: Florence, Algarve, Vienna, Berlin, Bremen, Bratislava, Budapest, and all over Spain and the UK, our favourite places!
Manu loves driving while I take pictures or write.
We love taking selfies. We’ve taken hundreds since the first picture in a photo booth!
I’m glad Manuel and I stuck together, in spite of almost splitting up, more than once.
Here’s our latest photo taken this morning at the beach in Almeria.
Manu and I are still standing, still smiling, still travelling, and still healthy and optimistic enough to look at the camera and smile, and that’s a lot to wish for and enough to have.
My Manu and me.
