Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bloom

This is the challenge post from Frank Jansen this week:

I’m going to go off on a tangent and tell you a story.
I am a firm believer that there is the perfect partner or soul mate for everyone, and it is Fate as to whether you meet in this life or the next.
Hubby and I were destined to meet, but that is not my story.

This is a simple tale of young love.
It is wonderful to behold, charming to witness, and a privilege to be included in their circle of friends.
The couple concerned are in their seventies, and for her, being in a relationship is an entirely new and exciting experience.
Over the past few months, we have seen her bloom, and I mean truly blossom in her manner, movement and personality. She now has a ready smile for all and will stop and chat about the simplest things rather than previous intellectual bias and things of distaste.
They have just come back from a caravan holiday and things that would normally have thrown her into a tirade of rage were met with laughter and amusement.

Love does indeed bring out the best in us, and for some, age is no limit.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
