till death do us part. (sorry, i lied)

I was quite shocked when I saw on the news that Madonna's divorcing her husband, Guy Ritchie.
(or was it the other way around?)

I definitely didn't see that one coming. I thought they always looked like a happy, loving couple. But I guess that's how most people are. They hide their anger, sorrow, sufferings behind a smiling face. I know, getting a divorce is not easy. GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE is definitely something very painful. I know because it happened in my family. Personally, I've never been through a divorce, but I've been through heartbreaks. When my 8 years relationship with a man ended, I was devastated. And I can say one thing about this: You can NEVER totally recover from the pain.

So what makes a relationship fail? Betrayal? Lies? Dishonesty?

Only those who have been through failed relationship knows the answer...


  1. Hi Ethel, re this posting, regret to read of your experiences...
    we enjoy warmth because we have been cold. We appreciate light because we have been in darkness.
    By the same token, we can experience joy because we have known sadness.

    Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some people move our souls to dance.
    They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
    Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
    They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

    And Ethel, don't feel sad its over, but smile because it happened.
    You have a nice day Ethel, keep well and hold that smile. Lee.

  2. u.lee - What beautiful words! Thank you for leaving this comment for me. This is definitely one comment I would look up to whenever I needed consolation. :)

    Thank you. You have a wonderful day as well.

  3. Ethel, by coincidence I put up the song, "Careless hands", one of my favorites as well two songs by the Carpenters....they for you. Like in your this posting experiences? Lee.

  4. Thank you! Will check them out - I believe I've never heard this one before. :P (shame on me)

  5. Hi Ethel, next to 'Careless hands' is "Tears", by Ken Dodd, a British singer....he has a face only a mother will love, but sure has a fantastic voice, and this song 'tears' was one of his well known its. I have three more his songs somewhere in the player.

    I love this oldies....and I don't blame you not hearing them before, ha ha, you too young when they came out.
    There's also Ricky Nelson's "Someday" in the top selection I put up for you.
    I'm sure you've heard Ricky Nelson? Ha ha.

    By the way, we are 12 hours BEHIND YOU. It is now 12.13 AM, just after Saturday midnight.
    You are Sunday 12.13 PM afternoon...
    So goodnight Ethel, you have a nice day, Lee.

  6. Hi Ethel, I suddenly rembered one song you might like, just put it up for up for you.
