love


A woman sees her husband of over 30 years from their yard walking up to the street they live on.  He's walked this route for over 15 years, most nights from the commuter bus that drops him off after work in the center of town.  “I guess I've never been out here at the right moment, when the trees are bare and I can see down the hill”.  She gushes about how cute he is and is completely distracted from the phone call she's on until he's out of sight and closer to the front door

 

 

I was on the phone with my Mom while she watched my Dad walking home.  I listened while she giggled, adoring his gait and totally loving every moment she could see him from her vantage point in the yard and then while she greeted him at the door.

 

That is love.  Epic, adorable, and something I will never take for granted.
