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!
