Hopeless romantic. . .

those two words describe me very well. . .I have always been drawn toward romance, love, devotion.

My parents were married for sixty years.  My daddy went to heaven first.  Six months later my momma followed.

I will always believe she just couldn't bear to be on this earth one more moment without her sweetheart.

And so today I dedicate this post to you couples. . .You who have weathered life's storms...

You who have danced together on those cloudy days as well as on those days filled with sunshine.

You who have held hands during those lean years as well a those years of prosperity. . .My hat is off to you!  I applaud you!

Vicki - I, like you, am a hopeless romantic. I just read an article this week in our local paper about couple who had been married 60 plus years. He had cancer and had been quite ill. He was in the hospital and died and she died almost immediately from a heart attack. The article was so moving that it brought tears to my eyes. They ran a little restaurant together and worked together side by side everyday.

They were having their services together. I just thought that was so precious.

I am smitten with 'Love'...is there anything better than Love?..
I would love to think not!

60 years is certainly something to be applauded in this day and age where everything, even relationships, seem to be disposable. Wishing you a lovely new week. Tammy
