  1. My husband is younger than I am – 61, and I am 76, but we don’t see ourselves as different ages, or as any age. I think being married or together for such a long time is a matter of looking outward in the same direction. It is caring for each other when everything is new and wonderful, but also when one of us is ill, lost all teeth, had surgeries and needed care, and just being able to laugh and share the simplest of things in this life. Life is beautiful and magical, and definitely worth sharing with another person for as long as we can both be on this earth.

  2. Thank you and your wonderful wife for every day of joy and inspiration you put into your posts. It is beautiful and uplifting to share these things. The day after I had my breast cancer surgery, out of the hospital, my dearest and I went to a free music festival in our town. I got up on the stage and danced with all the other ladies as the MC asked us to do to get the others to dance because I had so much to dance for. And my husband and I danced too because I could tell he was so truly happy that his love would still be around for awhile. But one of the most touching things I saw was this couple in their 90’s dancing together as if they were young teenagers, so much in love it was shining everywhere. I went and asked them how many years they had been together, and they were teens still when they got married. They loved each other so deeply it was truly a blessing to see them. They were not afraid to show their love to each other and it was so real too. They said they never went anywhere without giving the other one a kiss goodbye because they wanted to remember that always. What a glorious way to spend our lives.

    Postscript: I did recover from the cancer surgery, and my dearest supported me every step of the way. I refused to take the 5 days of radiation a week and any chemo because I did my research, and I told them that at my age, I would die a natural death before I would do those things. And I wanted to be around as long as I could to take good care of my beloved when he needed me. I have never regretted a single moment of that decision, and I know he feels the same way. Love is the best gift anyone can ever give us, even if it is just for a day.
