I wanted to share a experience I had. I was on a airplane and to my right was a husband and wife probably in their 70's. I noticed that her legs were shaking and he was just watching her lovingly. When dinner was served, she dropped her roll. He said, "don't worry honey, you can have mine." By this time, I'm literally crying in my window seat. When the plane took off, he grabbed her hand and they held hands. All during the flight he whispered sweet words to her. Then the flight was over and everyone was waiting to deboard. He got the bags down and she tried to grab one. He said.."oh no dear, I have these for you." Okay... I was a puddle. The most beautiful moments did I get to witness. Honestly, they reminded me of my husband. He would have done the exact same things to me. I thought of US in our later years... together... wrinkled, older and still so in love. I smiled through the tears.
This made me think about how thankful I am that even with my many imperfections.... my husband, children and friends love me. I think aging puts in all in perspective. I am going to say that LOVE is free and honestly makes me SO HAPPY!!!! I have been blessed with the most amazing neighbors and friends too. We have lived in our home for 17 years now. I can't imagine moving when I have so many wonderful people that inspire me in life.
Okay... that was just a little something I wanted to share today.
