Every time I visit the assisted living facility where I volunteer, I see an elderly couple sitting on a bench just inside the lobby. They don’t talk or look at each other. They simply sit and hold hands. Love is not always loud and showy. It doesn’t require grand gestures to be true. Sometimes, love is still and quiet. I don’t know their story, but I do know the love that radiates from that couple takes my breath away. How lucky are they to have found that kind of love. It’s a love that doesn’t need words, or glances, or validation. That is love.
