today in our front patio and it reminded me of my many poems and thoughts about kissing a frog and finding your Prince Charming. But there is also another side to that story.
The new Disney movie "Princess and the Frog" has a scene where the Princess gives in and kisses the frog so he can turn into a Prince and guess what? She turns into a frog. I laughed and laughed when I saw the preview. Growing up as I did with fairy tales and always wanting to live happily ever after, life was disappointing just like that scene. I needed a divorce in order to escape becoming like my frog. Click here to see the Disney trailer-it is too funny.
But then another frog came along and this one didn't know he was a Prince in disguise. His wife had divorced him and so his self worth was down. He was sure he was a frog but when we met, I sensed something else about him. Although we didn't kiss right away, now after 16 years of marriage I know he really is a Prince in disguise, but he still doesn't know it. Working with him on his life story, has been enlightening for him though challenging to sort out his accomplishments and perceived failures. Oh so, cathartic for both of us.
