Love of a Lifetime

I'm not usually one to link to news articles on my blog.  Doing so is as exciting as a dad reviewing Dora products or a mom blogging on meatloaf.  But I came upon a story that's too good to pass up, I must share it. 

God says in Genesis it's not good for man to be alone.  So He created a helpmeet.  Married for 72 years, true love, read it and weep.  Hoping one day I can experience that kind of love.

"It was really strange, they were holding hands, and dad stopped breathing but I couldn't figure out what was going on because the heart monitor was still going," said Dennis Yeager. "But we were like, he isn't breathing. How does he still have a heart beat? The nurse checked and said that's because they were holding hands and it's going through them. Her heart was beating through him and picking it up."

  1. What a nice story. You'll get there. Maybe not 72 years of it, because well you're already old, but you'll experience a love like that.

  3. A beautifully tragic story. They couldn't live without each other.

  4. @Christina - Calling the kettle black.

    @Dylan's Mom - A great example of lasting love that couple showed.

    @Frothing Sylvia - I guess the way they passed together would be the best way to go.

  5. If there's anything I am adding to my bucket list, it would have to be that... finding a love of a lifetime. What I wouldn't give for something as beautiful as that...
