I was privileged to care for an older gentleman in a medical situation. He was 94 and said that he and his wife had been married 74 years. Later that morning in walks this beautiful very lively tiny Lady and the gentleman smiled so wide and yelled "there comes my bride". Ohhhhh to be called a "bride" after 74 years...now that's what matters most!!!!
You really dont think about getting older.First of all,you're aging together and when you see a person constantly you don't notice big changes.Like you dont notice,oh you're getting a little wrinkle here and tomorrow you say oh its a little deeper.Those are things that just happen.You dont pay attention to those things.You dont realize it,really.I mean I'm not thinking everyday,oh my husbands 83 he's gonna be 84.Oh my goodness, I'm married to an old man.And I hope he feels that way too.
