Day 323 - Tuesday 18th November

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." - Ann Landers (1918-2002); advice columnist

Well I think this sums up James and I, although I think love came before friendship. I was in such a waste of a relationship before James as I had such low self esteem and I felt it was better to be in any relationship than be by myself. Luckily James came along and rescued me from this. We have been together for 10 years now and we have gone through good and bad times but this has only made us stronger. He has his imperfections and weaknesses but luckily my lack of these balance his out!!!! ;-)

You really do manage to make me laugh out loud Claire.
Poor James might think otherwise, however, I think you must be perfectly matched, otherwise you would not have got 10 years down the line and still be so happy!!!!!!!
