There are man things to love about love one is how it follows no set pattern…no rules…no norms…another is how it can pop up all around us in many sizes…shapes and forms. We spotted this older couple (let me digress a moment to discuss…when I say older couple what I mean is a couple who’s older than us). Anyway, we spotted this older couple…we’ve never seen them here before…as they exited their car to take a morning walk along the shore. As I say…they were a little older and what made matters even worse…to get down to the shore…there is a little ridge they must traverse. But we found we needn’t worry…this ridge…they had an answer for…he held her hands to steady her…until her feet were safely planted on the shore. And still holding on to his hands…even though she was quite small…she helped him down the ridge…making sure he didn’t fall. Then off they walked together…down the beach…along the sand…walking toward the sunrise…stride for stride…and hand in hand. This is just what I was talking about…exactly what I was thinking of…as what we witnessed on the beach were two simple acts of love. The first is how love helps love…as we realized when their scaling was done…their task was made less difficult…with two…instead of one. And the second…as we watched them walk along silhouetted in the morning glow… the second is my favorite… how love means… never letting go.
