TRIBUTE TO A MAN WHO TRULY LOVES HIS WOMAN!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I was on Facebook and just reading the various posts of my friends and I saw one that made me smile. A friend of mine showed pictures of her and her husband celebrating their anniversary. I love looking at pictures that people share of their families on Facebook and other social media. It is so nice to see lovely and fun pics and pictures of celebrations, especially with so much turmoil in our world.

Anyway, as I looked at the pictures she shared, I really noticed her husband. He was such a handsome man and there was no doubt that he loved his wife. I applaud him. I watched his reactions more than hers. But when I noticed my friend, I saw that she was glowing and basking in the love he had for her. She was like a flower that blossomed and never wilted. He had the right kind of nourishment to keep his flower blooming always.

That is what made me give this tribute to a man who truly loves his woman and is not ashamed to show it in any stage of their lives. I’ve been privileged to be married to that kind of man. We are both slower and arthritis has caught up with both of us. But there is still a light that comes in his eyes when he sees  me each day. My heart still races when I see him. He is still my best confidant. He brings his  money home and has never made a detour with it. I have never been insecure about his love for me, never. He’s never given me a cause to doubt his love either.

So, to all the men who have a woman that they truly love and cherish, go for it. She’ll blossom and others will ask her why she looks so good? They will ask her how old she is and when she tells them that she is much older than her years indicate, she’ll whisper  “That’s because my man must be doing something right. He’s a great gardener.” Nuf Said!

TRIBUTE TO THE ELDERLY AND ARTHRITIS

Happy New Year to everyone! 

It’s day three of the new year and I am excited about it. But this morning when I got up my knee said, “Take it slow.”  Well, I thought I was taking it slow, but not slow enough. So here I sit waiting on my pain medicine to kick in.

Arthritis for all the medical terminology and explanations about it HURTS! I used to power walk, exercise, and swim all the time. Oh yes, I used to run, too. Now I hobble to the car wondering why the car keeps moving further and further away from me.  I still try to lift those 5 pound weights for my upper arms. I try to do 10 lifts at a time. (I count by 2s). The last time I got in the 3 foot shallow end of the pool, I nearly drowned (not really) because my one arm would not go forward like it used to. (I used to do a mean dog paddle). Running is a fantasy I have now. 

Well, even though things have changed and I am older, I am still full of zest and life; it’s just that my body didn’t get the memo! No matter I am still grateful for each new day I wake up. I am glad for each year God gives me. I am glad that there are days when my arthritis doesn’t hurt so bad! 

It’s a new year and new challenges abound. Let’s face them with God on our side. Oh yes, I have learned that getting old isn’t for the weak, it’s for the strong! Here’s to a wonderful 2018 for all of us.
