I must sound like a broken record when I repeatedly comment on how a good marriage bed takes effort and commitment. GR just had his surgery so we took some time to get him back on his feet. Then as life would have it he got sick with a virus or something, totally apart from the surgery. He is rarely sick but he felt so poorly that he had to stay home on one of his work days. He seems to be back in rare form but... now we are gearing up for my surgery. His was "out-patient" so his recuperation period was simple and quick. Mine will be major surgery, orchestrated by two surgeons so naturally my recuperation period will be more extensive.
In the meantime, GR and I are getting in as much sex as we possibly can leading up to my surgery date which seems like it will be either on March 15th or April 12th. It is always wonderful when we are free to enjoy a good romp both mornings and nights like we are able to do now. Often I wake during the night; GR does too. When we do wake up we make a habit of caressing each other. Sometimes it leads to sex, other times it just keeps us physically connected until the next time we do have sex because we both love to be touched.
Enjoy your moments together. Sleep nude if you can. Snuggle when you are not having sex and have sex when you are not snuggling. It just breaks my heart when I hear spouses say, "It is too hard to have frequent sex. We have so many commitments." Do not allow the busyness of life to cut into your times of intimacy. Treasure each day in your marriage bed as if it is your last after all, we are not promised our tomorrows. None of us know when our last day will be so assume it is today and make every moment count.
