A Loving Mate

Want to share how elder couples show tenderness 3 days before Valentines Day:

I had an accident leaving my car in the garage and had to clean the floor, car, clothes, body, bathroom, shower, mop, etc etc. Meanwhile messages were coming in from my son and daughter that required responses!

It took 2 hours to clean up and restore freshness.

When I confided to Don what had happened, he helped me finish the clean up, and then offered to rub my feet with lavender, scratch my back to help me sleep, and promised to do more of this when needed. In between, several jokes about the incident kept us laughing!

Once again we got a great taste of elder intimacy.

Recipe: trust, patience, sense of humor, loyalty!

I need to see my grandchildren grow

Every week
I need to see my grandchildren grow

To know
They have a grandmother such as I

Creative quicksilver lady dropping seeds

With needs
Built in for curiosity, loyalty, respect and fun

To run
And bike and spin things-flashing light shining love-rays

Every week.

What Do You See?

My iPhone camera saw loyalty.
I saw trust.
Eileen saw her best friend.
Richard saw her calm.
What did Don see?

Richard’s iPhone saw red.
I saw outside the window.
Don saw his iPhone.
Eileen saw opposite glances.
Richard saw our patience.

What do you see?
