Heart


Saw the sweetest thing today. A man in rustic barn clothes much like we wear most of the time, holding the hand of a tiny, very elderly lady....she barely reached his shoulder, and was stooped and bent with the weight of her years....as he helped her up the steps into their barn. She was dressed in clean work clothes too......

It moved me. I nearly cried as we drove past. How beautiful.

Something about the affection across the years . . . across generations . . .
The human heart.
Very big.

I would have been just like you! Love in action. And Love isn't always just about young people.

Great shot, sounds like my mom and step dad. :-)

Cathy, it was only a glimpse, but it was so touching to me....perhaps because I am so fortunate in my own relationship with my son. There are so many stories that could be told about what we saw, but the most enduring plot line would be the love, as you say, across generations.

Linda, it was so sweet!

Ed, thanks.
