God showed me two sweet examples in response to my last post.
While Eli and I were eating at McDonald's today, I saw an elderly couple walking out of Walmart holding hands. They weren't just holding each other up because they were feeble. They were obviously very affectionate with one another.
I want for Rick and I to still be holding hands when we are old and gray.
Then while getting my nails done, an elderly man came in and bought two gift certificates for his wife to get pedicures. He said her birthday was in a couple of days. She apparently doesn't like to get out much, so he wanted her to have an excuse to pamper herself a couple of times. He said that he took her for a drive yesterday. And he called her his little sweetheart.
Oh, to have this kind of relationship with our spouses when we are old.
What a beautiful example!
