Doubly Thankful

In a letter to his son, Michael, J. R. R. Tolkien wrote this:


“Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to.”

March 1941

I am thankful for my soul mate!

    I don’t know if I’d believe in soul mates if it weren’t for mine. 🙂
