Saturday night we went to the good ‘ole office Christmas party. I couldn’t help but notice how each couple interacted. Our accountant and his wife are young and expecting their first baby. I watched almost with jealousy (not because I want him, but because of what they seem to have) as he smiled at her and touched her hair and whispered in her ear. Then I noticed another lady who has been married 26 years with her husbabd. They are both 50ish and sat inches apart not really speaking to each other. Then there was me and my husband. He at least spoke to me and held my hand or touched my knee (even brought me a glass of punch). I know the newness of a relationship wears off. You won’t stay the starry eyed person of your 20’s, but I sure pray we don’t end up the other extreme where we don’t even acknowledge each other.
