Thematically, her posts range far and wide. Her About page reads, “Join me in my wanderlust through Life, Love, People, Places.” In fact, the only connecting tissue in her writing is quality: Her posts are always thoughtful, always engaging, always quality time. More than enough reason…

To bask in Kavita’s sunshine!

Married twenty nine years yesterday, I chanced upon this on social media. Had to share.

He is 85 and insists on taking his wife hand in hand wherever they go.

When I asked why your wife is distracted, like she wasn’t following anyone?

He replied : She has Alzheimer’s.

So I said, will your wife worry if you let her go?

He replied, ′′She doesn’t remember… She doesn’t know who I am anymore, she hasn’t recognized me for years”.

Surprised, I said, ′′and still you continue to guide on the way every day even she doesn’t recognize you”.

The elderly man smiled and looked into my eyes. he said, ′′She doesn’t know who I am, but I know who she is. ” SHE IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!”

If only we could all live like this…

    In sickness and in health… Congratulations, Mitch, on your long marriage. My wife and I celebrated our 44th this summer and hope the pandemic will recede enough to allow our 45th to be a joyous get-together with family and friends.

    • Thank you Mitch for the reblog. My husband tells me that when we are ninety and ninety five, this would be us. He will hold my hand to help me along… probably because he does not want to lose me.
      … An attempt at humour too as recently, I walked away from the car, donned the sunglasses and held his hand. I looked up and it was not the husband but a passerby. I was mortified. Husband returned with a grin, having seen the entire thing. Lots of laughs and grins from the nearby car wash.

    Beautiful Mitch. Reminds me of the saying on one of my T-shirts that says, ” it’s not about me” It is a lot easier for me to wear the T-Shirt than for this gentleman’s faithful love for his wife.

    Gratitude. He is content to be grateful for all the years that he remembers. Just like God with us when we stray
