Thank you for your many comments on my post titled Women of a Certain Age and Ttwd. Your responses were great and as promised, I am now addressing the points that I did not include in my post.
One point mentioned that I did not include was the dear and important friendships made. Right here in blog land, the friendships began. Readers reached out to the blogger. Emails were exchanged. Friendships were developed and trust was built. Then came the fun meetings, carefully and tentative. Then came all the good times with restaurant times, visits to homes and even vacations in warm and sunny places. Very slowly and with great thoughtfulness, women reach out to meet women with similar interests. Some of us have even included our husbands. The men like one another and the future looks bright.
The word respect was mentioned. We, women of a certain age, have a renewed respect for the men we married. They like that attention and wear the mantle of their role well.
And finally, the fun! After almost four years of ttwd, I think the best part was mentioned in one reader's comment. FUN! We are having fun again. We are laughing and the laughing is in the bedroom. We are playing and being frisky, we, women of a certain age.
What's not to love! Things are so much better now.
