It Could Be a Norman Rockwell Painting

One of the deepest joys of daily life together has been watching the love that Grandma and Grandpa share, even in this time when Grandpa's health falters. As we gather for family devotions, Grandpa sits in his recliner on wheels, with his eyes shut, and Grandma pulls up the chair right next to him and holds his hands.

The joy of their love was exponentiated when today we found the albums of Grandma and Grandpa's engagement and wedding, now more than fifty years ago! Hannah and I loved looking at every detail, from Grandpa's telegram that confirmed the wedding date amidst his service in the Air Force, to the restaurant menus that marked special dates, to the old and dried flower and ribbon from the wedding day. So, so special.
