One-Liner Wednesday: Really?

Over heard, two octogenarians discussing their deceased husband’s:

“I suppose it is for the best in a way , if they were still here we would have to look after them”

    And many years ago, my mother, just before Christmas and running through the things that needed to be done and the things she had done, said of an old friend’s mother she used to visit, “And Mrs X, being dead, doesn’t need to be visited.” She couldn’t understand why I laughed so much it literally hurt.

        I asked my great-aunt why she never married, and she responded that she had watched her own mother care for her father, waiting on him hand and foot. He never lifted a finger. And she hadn’t wanted that in her life. I was shocked, but I can understand it. We all make our choices. I’m thankful men do more than they did in that bygone era.

        Yes men today are much more in tune with family life … some too much so, one of my sons works full time , shops, cooks, cleans and irons and does a lot with his his son. That’s lovely in a way. I am lucky my husband did his best but was away working most of the time the children were growing up. Now he is retired he loves to do the cooking and cleaning and shopping. In fact he like to tell me “Where I go wrong!! ” you have to smile! πŸ˜‰
