Bump. Just coming across this for the first time - VERY well written wincings! Thank you so much for sharing with us.

I am still working my way thru the Muck - it is hard work but well worth it! Who knows when I will be able to get to the Mud....but then again who cares how long it takes as long as you are doing real work!

Bump for LostGuy.

wincings_sparkle ~ Thank you. I am so proud of you. BW here, and what I get out of this is: HOPE. If you get it then it is entirely possible that my WH gets it, too.

WOW! I really hope my WH reads this.

I have thought through your analogy a little further....

The destination of the Ship of Life may very well be different than the destination of the Life Boat.

Either partner may or may not appreciate the new destination.

I pray my destination is somewhere tropical!

Well done, wow!

I just stumbled on this again tonight and wanted to bump it for anyone who has not read it yet. It is a great perspective and a wonderful analogy.

Thanks again wincings!

Wow! ~ Bump

I really hope they will put this one in the library, too!

It was time to bump this back to the front where it might be read again and the wisdom in it shared once more. BUMP!

A friend asked where this post was. Bump, here it is.

Great post...I wish my WW was ready to find it on her own.

She's expecting me to fly in with a rescue chopper.

Seriously, I am very encouraged and optimistic with my recent visits to this forum. At the same time, I am also disappointed in my WW who, while she does want us to stay together, seems to want it to not take much work other than being nice to each other and spending more time together

wow, this is outstanding. FWH will be reading this tonight.

Paperclip posted 5/11/2011 13:47 PM

Wow, this is wonderful, wincings.

Excellent!!! I'm with Feb 8... Unfortunately after a great start I think we hit a plateau and the boat is taking more and more water. I am passed out. He can't swim. Being nice to each other, doung more stuff together and having more sex seems to be his recipe for R. I am teetering on the edge today... Hope that there is a life jacket on that damn boat!!!

WhatHaveIDone?? posted 5/11/2011 20:03 PM

I still love this thread!!!

I stick with my original post...still working my way thru the muck. I am finding there is a lot of muck, but I am working thru it. Somedays I wonder if there is an end to it - not in a hopeless way but from the perspective that if you don't clear up the muck completely it can come back.

The mud is far on the horizon, but I think I am beginning to see it. We shall see.

Thanks again wincings for posting!

Yes, a most awesome post and analogy. Thank you for your wisdom and another vision to keep in my head.

I continue to work on my mud and muck, and with each handful that I get out, there seems to be another, thicker handful to grab under it. I'm hopeful I'll get to the bottom of that pile as long as I keep digging with both hands...

I am also very hopeful that when we hit that shore that there on that island there is everything we need to build a new marriage ship. A strong and beautiful one that we can build together with our whole hearts. One that is worthy of my wonderful and beautiful BS.

I have hope for that shore. I have hope for that new ship. I believe I have the strength and resolve to get there.

This is just what I needed today. Thank you.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I have shared it with my WS and can only hope he uses it. You are so right about exhausted, blown apart and adrift. I agree with others this would be nice to see in the library, I just happened across it here hoping to find some insight and 'Why' from the other side of the fence, so to speak. Thank you.
