Love Is A Beautiful Thing
The question is asked, "Can anything be more beautiful than a boy and girl clasping clean hands and pure hearts on the path of marriage? Is there anything more beautiful than young love? "
And the answer is given, "Yes, it is the sight of an old man and woman finishing their journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are lined, but still radiant; their hearts are are bowed and tired, but still aflame with love for each other. Yes, there is something more beautiful than young love. Old love."
I (Lana) snapped this photo of my grandparent's intertwined hands at a family gathering recently. Nearly fifty four years in, they are still in love.
People like that are my heroes. :)
