A Love Story

13 Feb

A Love StoryThey walked hand in hand…gently strolling along the sidewalk, their body language a bit perplexing. Admiring as though I was watching a play, I sat at a stop light in my car. They continued their stroll in silence, yet an aura of love encircled them.  Unsure whether to smile or cry, I did both.

Their destination…the front entrance of an Alzheimer’s facility.  It was clear then, the sweet awkwardness.

In that small glimpse into their life, I somehow felt I knew them.  In that moment, I saw the graceful courtship in the midst of a dreadful disease.  In that brief invitation into their world, I saw something special.

I continued my thoughts of them throughout the day, full knowing they were challenged, yet in that moment their life was good.  I wish them more of those moments.
