I’m afraid that time is coming up fast at our house. We’ve been married 55 years and my husband is going to be 80 this year. I do cherish my time with him, even the irritating moments. But he does say he’s sorry when he’s hurt me with words and he asks me to forgive him after he calms down. And I do. I think his overreactions to things that were never meant to be slights are remnants of a TIA he had a couple of years ago.
