I want to be held while I cry until the last tear. I want to snuggle on the couch, watching a movie together. I want to eat my supper and enjoy conversation instead of watching TV. I want to go out for supper and enjoy a beer and great food. I want to be held by strong arms until I fall asleep. I want to wake and watch him sleep. I want to feel a gentle touch and be told I’m beautiful. I want to wake to the smells of breakfast cooking. I want to go fishing and share the joy of the day’s catch. I want to walk down Main Street holding hands. I want to share the joy of grandchildren. I want to experience the Adirondacks in every season, hiking, paddling, snowshoeing, climbing, or skiing side by side. I want to see the joy and appreciation for the delicious meal and dessert I made. I want to share working in the garden, in the yard, and in the shop. I want to be kissed. So many wants. I’ve experienced more than some ever will and, even though I want many, many more, I am truly thankful.
