A love to last

"John it's here", the lady said. The old man,using his walking cane, got up and the old lady took the former's arm. She looked at me smiling and I smiled back. They got in the bus,holding onto each other. This got me thinking but it felt good to see old couple like them, when during these past two days I was confronted with three different realities of a relationship. Seeing them made me wonder about the patience, understanding and love they have given each other. Wait!! I was supposed to write --put up with each other. But if they merely put up with each other would contentment be on the woman's face?

The three other stories might not turn out like the old couple's but each woman has also given patience,understanding and love.

So when to stay and not give up on love?

Hello Ate Mayet..

May nabasa ako dati, there was once a couple daw, and on their 50th anniv, a grandson asked them..

"What's the secret to your married life granma?"

Grandma said, "On our first wedding night, I wrote on a paper a list of mistakes and faults that I will forgive him at. From then on, whenever he does something bad, I say, good thing that's on that list. Truth is, it's just a blank paper."

Siguro the secret to a lasting love is total trust and forgiveness, and hope that things will get better. :D

Stay happy and God bless! :D
