What is Love...? Part 2

Yesterday I saw an older couple who walked arm-in-arm. So sweet.

It reminded me of this other older couple I met many years ago. I was working at a fast food court in college, and the grandpa ordered two coffees for himself and grandma. I asked if they'd want milk or sugar with it.

He replied, "Two sugars for me, none for her. She's sweet enough already!" Awwww.

Came across this post today. Yes I know it's tempting to just see the pictures without reading the story first (can't help it, I'm a photographer even if I am not actively taking photographs. Guess once a photographer, always a photographer?) but trust me, do read the story, then the pictures become even more meaningful and emotional.

Yes I got teary. Yes there is still love like this among us.

  1. Wow how lovely, but seriously Christa I didn't need tears first thing in the morning. :-)

    I have to say I love seeing elderly couples together holding hands, it melts my heart every time.

    BTW - I won't recommend Comfort and Joy to you :-) and I stopped reading Good Grief. 24 hours so far is amazing....

  2. Thanks for linking to that post, it was just beautiful. I'm all teary-eyed now.

  3. That was an amazing story and a beautiful way to tell it. The pictures were so poignant. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That story really was precious, as well as the photos.

  5. Oh wow.
    *wiping away tears*
    That is so beautiful.
    Thank you so much for sharing it.
    And thank you for reminding me to read it.

  6. Ooops, didn't know I missed replying this post! Sorry for the delay!

    @Marce - next time I'll put a WARNING: YOU NEED KLEENEX sign up :) I think I'll skip Comfort and Joy then lol. No comfort or joy for me!

    @Kim - isn't it beautiful?!

    @stacybuckeye - I know, the words and photographs complement each other so well!

    @Alyce - I know!

    @Juju - you are welcome. Sorry I didn't mean to make everyone cry! :)
