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.
