I am in year 3 of my blog.
In the early days of this blog, there are posts that received little exposer.
I have a new category ‘Reruns – A Fresh Perspective’. This category reposts these earlier posts that received little exposer and a fresh perspective on how I feel about them today.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia –
A life partner is a romantic or otherwise very close friend for life. The partners can be of the same or opposite sexes, married or unmarried, and celibate, monogamous or polyamorous.
From Me, the free blog –
My life partner and I are romantic, are very close friends for life, we are of the same sex, unmarried and monogamous.
My life partner is more than the Wikipedia definition; my definition of my life partner encompasses additional qualities and traits. These qualities and traits are included in the definitions for Lifeguard, Life Coach, Life Line and Life Saver.
My life partner as a Lifeguard will rescue me when I get into difficulty in a swimming pool. Not just an actual swimming pool, but all other metaphors for swimming pool. The swimming pool of life in comparison is more like an ocean. This ocean at time seems endless with no land near and the boat we are on at times experiences turbulence in the water. I know when the turbulence gets rough; my Lifeguard will be there to rescue me.
My life partner as a Life Coach councils and encourages me when I experience personal challenges. This Life Coach will motivate me to fight the challenges and achieve my goals. This Life Coach will advise me during times of decision making, and reminds me of my strengths and encourages me to overcome my weaknesses.
My life partner as a Life Line will preserve my life by keeping in contact during times of need. This Life Line is never too far to throw me a rope when I need to be brought back closer. This Life Line watches me close as I roam into uncharted territory and never leaves me alone in harm’s way.
My life partner as a Life Saver (the candy) is sweet, fruity and fun. This Life Saver’s sweetness is never ending, always pleasurable in personality. This Life Saver is fruity, mellow and cheerful. This Life Saver is fun and enjoyable to have around. This Life Saver can be lighthearted, be amusing and be entertaining.
So, my hopes are for people who have a life partner in their life, they have more than just the Wikipedia definition of a life partner. My hope is your life partner rescues you, advices you, encourages and motivates you – My hope is your life partner brings pleasure and fun in your life. My Life Partner Does!
A Fresh Perspective –
When I wrote that post over 2 years ago, Gary was my life partner and today he is my husband. I have written many posts about the importance of him in my life, especially now. He continues to be my Lifeguard, my Life Coach, My Life Line and certainly my Life Saver (the candy). He is all that and more, how fortunate I am to have this special person in my life.
