Things to Thank Your Spouse For if You’re Over 70

I read with interest and article on my newsfeed from Brides Magazine written by Jillian Kramer, “The 8 Best Things to Thank Your Spouse For.” I agreed with everything she said, but I think the list would be slightly different for senior citizens. Here are my things to thank your spouse for if you’re over 70.

 1.      Scratching me where I itch. Don’t get all excite, it’s not a metaphor, I’m being literal here. As you get older. Especially if you have arthritis, you can’t reach some parts of your own body. You need a helping hand.

2.      Waking me whenever a Victoria’s Secret commercial come on like I wake you for George Clooney.

3.      Helping me put on my socks and tying my shoes on those days when my back aches. That include picking up things I drop.

4.      Hearing the telephone ring, the smoke alarm, and my alarm clock because I don’t hear well.

5.      Helping me stand up from my chair when I need a lift.

6.      Reminding me about birthdays for grandkids, doctor appointments, and my password for my computer.

7.      Letting me sleep late when I’ve had a bad night.

8.      Reading the fine print on labels and ads.

9.      Opening bottles and those damn child-proof lids on meds.

10.  Telling me I look sexy when I know I look like crap.

11.  Laughing at the same old jokes year after year.

 I’m sure there’re a lot more I should thank my spouse for but it’s getting late. Can you think of any? Let me know.
