What do you nurture and treasure in life?

Dear Readers,

Some of you have been wondering why I have not posted many articles in recent days and weeks. It has not been out of laziness or lack of interest, I assure you. It is just that with our three surgeries practically back to back, life has been overwhelmingly busy. Our surgery stuff is going well. What I am still battling with is this throat thing.... and I still really do not know what it is. Family doc thought I needed to see a throat specialist so I did. Throat specialist did not see any obvious problems but suspected gastric reflux. Then my surgeon from last year's surgery looked at everything and felt that we needed to pursue testing for a possible ulcer. So..... now I am scheduled to have an endoscopy on May 6.

Oddly enough, with all this going on our marriage bed has been kept intact :-). My incision is very large and still tender to the touch, wrapping around my hips for 18+ inches but in spite of that, we have managed quite well to keep our sex life active. GR and I are both grateful for that. Honestly, I do not know how others do after surgery but GR and I value our sex life far too much to let it go to the wayside, after all, why should we? We would not neglect other aspects of our marriage because of surgeries so why would we neglect our marriage bed? That would be just plain dumb... like shooting ourselves in the foot.

Sex is far too crucial to throw aside during life's bumps in the road. What do you do with your marriage bed when life gets messy? If your sex life takes high priority there should never or at least rarely be a time when it dwindles down. Sexual intimacy should ALWAYS be at the top of our 'to do' list, not as a chore but as a fun and necessary daily part of our lives. We always breathe. We always eat. We always sleep. We always exercise. And we should always enjoy our sex lives.

Here's to erotic marital sex no matter what is going on in our lives... that we always make time to nurture and treasure it!
