Dec. 7/17

I had the most amazing morning today…I was supporting a client who just had hip surgery a week ago, and since he is the one who normally gets breakfast for himself and his wife but can’t do so right now, I’m part of a team that is helping them with their morning routine till he literally gets back on his feet.  After I’d made breakfast for both of them, there was time to settle in for some “getting to know you”…

72 years ago, these 2 fell in love with each other.  When she was telling me about their life together, she would often lean her head over onto his shoulder, and get this look in her eye that made you think they had just met yesterday…life had not always been easy for them, but they had gotten through everything by being a team and pulling together, and now 72 years later, it was clear that they intended to keep supporting each other, no matter what.  As I reflect on my own gratitude at being married 34 years, I am newly inspired to try to make our next 38+ years something someone will write about with the same delight many years from now!
