Monday's Musings

This past week, I saw true love.

Not Hollywood stuff.

Deep love. Forged over 59 years of marriage.

Love that's been through the fires.

Love that's been tested.

Love that's been proven.

Love etched in the lines of beautiful hands.

My mom has been in the hospital for a week with 2 compression fractures in her spine. And daddy's been right there beside her. Literally.

Their love for each other is so evident. So real. Daddy's devotion shown through.

While I hated to see mom in so much pain, I was blessed beyond measure to see their love demonstrated in such tender ways over this past week.

What I saw was true love.
