What I'm Most Grateful for Today at Age 67


I only want to kiss you I lamented when I lost my libido.
You said fine. I love that you only kissed me
for a long time until I asked for more. You obliged
and we discovered a whole new way to ignite
passion that found its fulfillment. Today,
I love you most for that.

55 for the G-Man - giving thanks for things that really matter.

  3. There are some things one is never too old for--I hope! As I often say, I'm old, not dead. ;_) A lovely counting of blessings here, Mary.

  12. I love the fact that you found words and then put them out there. Those of us who also live this story will find comfort, and perhaps even courage, in your words.

    1. We're in this together, aren't we? I did hesitate but then figured I wasn't the only one facing this change. So be encouraged!
