Still the one.. (8:30, a man in his 80s arrived @ the hospital & was in a hurry. He had an appt at 9am. I asked if he had a doctors appt. He said he had to go to the nursing home for breakfast w/his wife, a victim of Alzheimers. I asked if she'd be upset he was late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, she hadn't recognized him in 5 yrs. I asked, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?’ He smiled and said, ‘She doesnt know me, but I still know her').

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough… … Nicholas Sparks
old people in love is something we see frequently now. But that those old people fell in love when it wasn't okay to just leave each other when things got hard. If it's broken they fix it. I fear that in 50 years we won't see old people in love like this who have been together forever.
I want my love to last and grow deeper through the years. We will work through the fights and the kids and the troubles and discover and re-discover the quirks and peeves and idiosyncrasies that we have and there will always be affection when we touch.
