The Struggle Is Real

After nearly fifty years of marriage a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband begin to massage her in ways he hadn’t in quite some time.

It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck and then began moving down past the small of her back. he then caressed her shoulders and neck, slowly worked his hand down, stopping just over her stomach.

He then proceeded to place his hand on her Left, inner arm, working down her side, passing gently over her buttock and down her leg to her calf. Then he proceeded up her thigh, stopping just at the uppermost portion of her leg.

He continued in the same manner on her Right side, then suddenly stopped, rolled over and became silent.

As she loved his caressing, she asked in a loving voice, “Honey, that was wonderful. Why did you stop?

To which he responded, “I found the remote”.

When I was looking for a photo, I searched the phrase  “Elderly couple cuddling in bed”  To my dismay, most of the “elderly” couples appeared much younger than Alicia and I… well me, anyway.   The struggle is real.

Thanks to my colleague “June June” for posting this on her FB page.  Used with with her enthusiastic permission.
