Hubs and I are products of the 60's and the Beatles were "hot" when we were growing up. One of their song lyrics went like this: "Will you still need me, will you still feed me...when I'm 64?"
When we were young and listening to the music of that day, being 64 never entered our minds. Why, that was ancient! But, lo, the days have passed and today, my sweet Steve is 64!!
And, yes, I still NEED him and I certainly will still FEED him, even though he is 64!
Happy Birthday to my long-time best friend! You are the best husband and loving Papa! I love you more each day!!
Speaking of me feeding him: Lately, our tables have been turned. I had foot surgery ten days ago and I am still looking like this:
Lovely, isn't it? I had bunion surgery with a few pins put in my big toe to straighten it up. It is still swollen and painful. Yes, I have pain pills but they wear off and the pain is back. I have this big black boot but my foot is just so swollen that I can't stand to wear it.
Here is my new best friend:
Well, it gets me everywhere I need to go at the moment! (That just means the bathroom!!)
If any of you have had this surgery and have any advice for me for being down the next few weeks or so, I would welcome it.
A good reminder to me this morning was in my devotions strangely about patience. Imagine that! (God's timing is always right!)
Proverbs 16:9 says, " In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps."
God is so good! Thanks to many of our church family who have so graciously brought food to us so Steve wouldn't have to cook!!
So being 64 has it's set-backs, but I am so thankful for my mostly good health, my family, my wonderful 64-yr-old husband(finally caught up to me in age) and a wonderful Saviour who watches over me daily!
