My nephew wants me to warn him of certain statuses……consider yourself warned. Happy Birthday Hubby! Today is the anniversary of Merrill’s birth. Merrill, my gorgeous hubby, is 42 today. I take care of an adorable older couple in their 80’s. The husband is hard of hearing (I doubt it at times) and is famous for saying, “What?”. She then, will yell at him whatever was just said, so picture the scene yesterday, when I was walking out the door. “Tomorrow’s your husband’s birthday”, to whit I responded, “Yes ma’am”. “Well, I’ll bet I know what your getting him” and as if I didn’t get the joke she continued, “You know what I mean don’t you?”. I do indeed know what she means.

I got 99 problems, but sex ain’t one. When I was younger, and had the whole world at my feet, I thought that people in their 40’s were old, and that (ahem) sex was over by 41. My clients are in their 80’s and SHE is constantly telling dirty jokes; which embarrasses the heck out of her husband. Poor guy, I’m always admonishing her stop because hubby is clearly uncomfortable, but he ADORES her and his face always brightens up, when he’s talking to her. He had tears in his eyes one day, so I naturally asked him if something was wrong. His response, “She’s just so beautiful”. If he could chase her around the house he would, but he’s content to just sit and stare at her….no matter how much she torments him…..

When I look at him (My husband. Catch up), I feel my LIFE skip a beat. I have in my 40’s what my couple still has in their 80’s, and I’m am so blessed. I love you Doll, here’s to US….in our 80’s; which I’m sure he’ll still be chasing me. Walking out the door yesterday, my client said, “You know what I mean, don’t you?” I responded, “Yes sweetie (I smiled) I know what you mean”. Her husband knowing that some conversation was taking place, but couldn’t hear it said, “What?”. Not skipping ONE BEAT she retorted, “She’s going to go home and have SEX with him”…….”Oh, okay. Have fun”……I giggled all the way to the car….Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmation complete, Happy Birthday Doll.
