People ask, Does he recognize you? Lately sometimes, as occasionally over the years, the answer has been, Not always.
He certainly doesn’t seem to know my name anymore but knows I am a friend.
Today my welcome was spectacular. When he saw me he broke into the most amazing delighted grin and pulled me into a hug. He leaned down and, as has become a ritual, delicately kissed my lips, giving a funny little nod of satisfaction and happiness.
All through lunch, he would reach out and give my arm a happy stroke.
His delight brought tears to my eyes.
More and more lately i have been feeling our time together is precious and have been making extra visits. After all, what woman wouldn’t be thrilled to have her love welcome her so extravagantly?
