Roller Skates...Lots of Love

So..yesterday, we took a bunch of kids from work to the zoo, and then had a BBQ lunch and fun at the park.

Just as all the kids and staff went into the zoo, I went out to my car to take all the food up to the grill.

As I was walking out...I pass this cute old couple...a nice lady in a huge sun hat, and about 10-15 feet behind her is her hubby, hunched over, with a cane, and has a camera around his neck, she smiles and me, nods her head and then looks at him with a smirk on her face and says, "Well geez Charles, I should get you a pair of roller skates and then I could just pull you on behind me." He found it amusing, as did I.

This got me thinking...these people have probably been together since they were 18 years old, probably a good 50-55 years, and they are still so much in love that even though he can barely walk, and is probably just about that far behind her on a daily basis, he goes with her to the zoo to enjoy a beautiful sunny day.

It definitely puts things into perspective. I think we all do things for the people that we love, some things that we probably wouldn't do on our own....but we do it..because we love them..and want to spend time with them no matter what we are doing.

I am thankful every day for my fantastic family, my amazing friends and my fabulous fiance. I hope to be this lucky and this happy forever!
