Spring Break, 1976, bicentennial year and my parents decided we’d do a historical tour. It was one week after my 10thbirthday and we were in Gettysburg, PA. Just where you want to be when ‘you become a woman,’ far from home!! My mother was going through menopause at the time. My sister loves to remind me that after my first cycle completed, I told mom I was “ready for mini-pause.” I had already had enough of this womanly stuff!
Thank you, Sarah and Abraham!! I am greatly encouraged that at ages 90 & 100, Sarah and Abraham were still enjoying the comfort of sexual relations. She laughed when the Lord (appearing as three visitors) told Abraham she would conceive because she was far passed the age of fertility. (Genesis 18 & 21) There is hope for us, beautiful ladyfish! We can enjoy sexual intimacy with our hubbies FAR PASSED the age of fertility. Not long ago, I found out that a dear 70 year old friend had only recently found her clitoris. So, it is NEVER too late to enjoy the pleasures of the God-created act of sexual intimacy.
“And Sarah said, ‘God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me,'” Genesis 21:6.

OK, beautiful readers, what can you add about your peri-menopause experience and your sexual health? What have I forgotten?
