|We take lots of selfies but|
don't really know what we are doing!
We finish each other sentences, bicker over whether we should leave the umbrella up or down in the rain and get in each other's way. But we love to spend time together. Honestly, I miss my husband when he is out of my sight!
Is this all a good thing? Should a wife be than dependent on her husband? Won't that make it harder for one or the other of us when we are left along?
Well, for as long as it lasts I am not going to question my joy. Marriage is still fun even after almost 57 years.
A day in the life of a single retiree must be very lonely I think. When I am by myself, I gain new respect for people who are left alone and live such a full life. It takes some doing on my part to think for myself without hearing my husband's voice in my ear. Isn't that strange? It would take time to get over that I think.
But, you need to know that I do do it without much trouble. I go about my business, visit with neighbors as I walk around my block, read, watch TV and (best of all) write. And in this day of technology I can talk face to face on my iPhone with family or even friends. That is so very wonderful.
It all feels like it might be okay to be alone after a while but I will not know how it really feels until it is my turn.
It is just a thought.
I am having a wonderful day and I hope you are too.
