~FEBRUARY..THE MONTH OF LOVE~
This took place all across America, I'm sure. Perhaps it happened when I found myself alone after 43 years of marriage, but I consider Valentines Day a day to express your love for others. Family, best friends and all friends, even our special blogger buddies that give so much to us. I think..this was one of the best Valentines Days..I have had in a long time.
I slept in late this morning and as usual,T got up earlier and quietly slipped out of the room and let me sleep. When I finally rolled out of bed in shock at the hour, I found this on my dresser. He was all smiles when I came into the kitchen. We are new together. Old folks getting to know one another and shy about everything.
We had a quiet, warm, sweet day together.
We both know we have other memories of other times long past and we honor those memories. We talk. This person, this marriage, these times...are good. Getting older has it's rewards.
Neither of us wanted to be alone and lonely. Neither of us wanted to grow old alone. Oh we probably will one day be alone once again..and we have accepted that.
But right now...we are "Last Chance Howard...and Mona".
Valentines Day is running out quickly...but love never will. And we bloggers are on to ...another Holiday to decorate for and write about.
Love and hugs to all.
