    How Wonderful to See

    It truly is an anomaly in a world such as ours these days to see a truly happy couple...divorce seems more common than having a dog. But to see an older couple holding hands...showering each other with kindness and affection just melts me. I believe it gives us hope that...

    Several times a week I see an older couple

    travelling around town. It's simply the sweetest and most inspiring thing to witness. They help each other on and off the bus. Hold hands while walking. I have never seen one without the other. Both are completely in tuned and focused on each other. Sad that it's such a rare...

    Two hands are joined together

    and you can see straight past the brown spots of age, along the blue and purpled veins just under the surface that carry the frailty of long life , beneath the now almost translucent, fragile skin that prove their test of time by the love they hold inside of their hands clasped...

    Heck, they don't even have to be married

    as long as they love each other and care. I saw an older couple walking in Los Angeles a couple of days ago, everybody had to walk around them, I admired seeing that and really wished I had someone like that in my life. It was a beautiful thing.

    When asked how they were able to stay together

    for 65 years, the woman replied: "In our day, if something was broke, you fixed it; not just throw it away." ***As seen on a meme on FB.***

    I am old, just not married.

    Have no one to hold hands with. My hands don't get cold, so I must be alright.

    if I have sons, I will teach them to love

    and respect their wives. If I have daughters, I will teach them independent, strong enough to suffer the loneliness.

    I saw a couple like that today.

    They were both about 80 and they held hands like teenagers. Love doesn't know the concept of time and the heart doesn't get old. Someone has said that we mature with damage, not with the years passing by - maybe that's why people who love and are loved stay forever young... true...

    I really love old people,

    especially couples. I think they're cute, and they make me smile super big. Sometimes I don't mind the thought of growing old, because I have a feeling I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.

    A long time ago,there was a man
