Early today we had to do a lot of back and forth trip to two of my husband's aunt. Its doing a little charity work for the oldies. We take Aunt Charlene to see her husband who is now living in the nursing home. She doesn't drive anymore due to old age. They don't see each other often it depends if someone can drive her to see him.
On our way to the facility from a distance her husband already see her and he is waiving his hand and with a very big smile on his face. I am amaze to see that their love for each other didn't fade at all its still genuine even though they are both old. She give him a lip kiss and a tight hug. Todd and I are just behind them as she pushes his wheelchair to his room. I find the place so depressing seeing other seniors sitting on their wheelchair; one lady is keep on talking to herself saying "Mama help me" and another one was holding a book as if she is reading but is calling for a nurse to help her. Its like they are just waiting for their time to be with our Creator. I said to Todd if i reach at this stage I don't want to stay in this place if I have the choice.
Inside his room he is digging something in his drawer, I wonder what is he looking for, it was a picture of them together. He showed it to her and said "Can you remember this? It pains my heart to see him crying asking her how is she doing and telling her he wants to go home, its like they are comforting each other, I think that's how it goes if you don't have kids; living together for 50 years is hard to be separated from each other. They have been married now for 55 years.
Its time for us to leave, Todd pushes his wheelchair outside of his room to the elevator. They bid their goodbyes and kiss each other. Its so nice to see their love still burning.
