Word High July for 3 July 2016 Tinatangi

Today’s word Tinatangi means special someone.   Immediately what came to my mind is my child-bride, Suzanne.  The second thing that came to my mind is an episode of My Little Pony where it was hearts and hoofs day.  The Cutie Mark Crusaders were concerned because their teacher did not have a very special somepony.

Well, my child-bride Suzanne is my special somepony.  We have been together since just before her sixteenth birthday, which was just after my nineteenth birthday, which is why I call her my child-bride.  See my posts entitled Master Control for more details.

Suzanne has been with me through the loss of my father, the loss of our third child, loss of several jobs, car repossessions, evictions, and a toe amputation. (I nearly died in that one but, thanks to Suzanne and her intervention, I am still here.)  Suzanne was with me in the nursing home when she learned that her father had passed away. 

Suzanne has helped me through a multitude of insulin reactions and got me help after three strokes.  My oldest daughter helped her with the first one. 

I have not been the easiest person for Suzanne to love but, through it all, she has done it.  So, Suzanne, the mother of my five children, is indeed my very special somepony.  Therefore, I can call her my tinatangi.
