Divergent

Daily Draw: Art of Life Tarot ~ 5 of Wands

Conflict. Conflicting ideas, plans, viewpoints, backgrounds.
Couples planning to marry or produce a child should be required to write a thesis on what they view their conflicts to be, and then memorize each others. Would it help? Maybe. If they wanted help.

I'm reminded by this card, other than race, Rob and I were polar opposites when we married. We should have had conflicts about anything and everything. In many cases we just learned to pick our battles. After 45 years we are far more alike than divergent. Rob has softened and I have hardened. And neither one of us seeks conflict, not our idea of excitement.

"We must not ignore the small daily differences we have which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee." ~ Marian Wright Edelman 1939-

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
