To Dance With You at 82

I normally occupy a great deal of my husbands thoughts, I like knowing that. The only time I take a back seat and I'm ok with that too, is when he's in his element. When he's fishing or hunting.

I love to sit and watch him when he's doing something that he really enjoys. It's like I get a glimpse into his other world. I don't think I'll ever get bored gazing at my Husband. Watching my Husband interact with our Son is one of my favorite pastimes, it's the only time I don't mind not being a member of the "No Girls Allowed" club. My Husband is my sons' best friend. Oh.... How just watching them together just warms my heart! I don't mind sharing one with the other.



My greatest wish in life, is to dance with my Husband on our 50th wedding anniversary, I am in such awe of the couples that spend a life time together. I will be 77 on that day and he will be 82 and I hope that is the one wish granted to me. In today's society there seems to be so much infidelity in a marriage and maybe it's because of my own Father's many indiscretions, that is the one thing I know I will never do, for to loose the way my Husband looks at me......... would be like a life........... without sunshine.

I know exactly what you mean about seeing your husband and your son together.  I have two boys and my favorite thing in this entire world to sit and watch is him holding the boys while he watches TV or just plays with them.  I love to just sit and watch.

YOU KNOW KIM........I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT YOU WILL GET THAT DANCE.:)
OUR JIMS EVEN RESEMBLE ONE ANOTHER. IN THIS PICTURE HE HAS ON THE SAME JEANS AND TANK SHIRTS THAT MY JIM WEARS ALL THE TIME IN THE SUMMER. LOL! I ALWAYS WONDER WHAT HE WOULD DO IF I GOT RID OF HIS BELOVED TANK TOPS. LOL!
I AM WITH YOU ON HAVING YOUR HUSBAND NOT LOOK AT YOU IN THE SAME WAY IF YOU CHEATED. TO ME,  THAT WOULD JUST BE THE END OF IT , EVEN IF THE MARRIAGE DID SURVIVE OR WE COULD MAKE IT WERE I TO EVER CHEAT, THINGS JUST WOULDNT BE THE SAME BECAUSE OF THE CHANGE OF THE LOOK IN JIMS EYES FOR ME.
YOU WORDED THAT WAY BETTER THOUGH, LOL!
KIM.
