A lesson in Love



I come from a long line of “pick your self up by your boot straps” kinda gals. Strong Southern Woman that would have worked three jobs to keep food on the table…made matching Easter outfits for thier children. And always had an “extra pie" on hand just in case someone was to drop in.

Part of that legacy is my dear Aunt Roma. I was able to spend some time with her this week in Tx, and I am a better person for it!

My Great Aunt and her “Honey”, Uncle Bernie have been married for 60 plus years, and they treat one another like they are still dating. Whether it is a tender pat on the knee, or a “Darling, would you mind getting me some milk”? The tone is always the same; with love and pure adoration for one another.

What an inheritance I have been given. Love is a choice! And my Aunt and Uncle have chosen to “love one another through sickness and health, for better and worse, till death they do part. “.
