Even at 90, they still held hands.

He had always thought holding hands was a more intimate act then sex. For when he held her hands, he always felt like he could almost hear her thoughts. She also felt it too.

No one could have foreseen this from two downtrodden souls.

When they met, they were “off-the-market”, too old to wed but answered prayers are always unexpected miracles.

And now as they looked at all the generations that came from their love, they smiled at each other, contagious joy in their eyes.

“Happy 55th Wedding Anniversary…” their brood sang.
