Everyone here? Ok. Let`s go through the rest of this post.
There was another event today. This morning, my grandpa came to a room where my grandma was sitting watching TV. She is not doing well lately, she is 83, started to forget things, names, faces of people around, days, months…. Last year she broke her hip. After operation she was improving but then her bones started to hurt this spring and now she spends a lot of time in bed. Somehow I feel she gave up on everything :awww:
Well, my grandpa sat by her side, put his arm around her shoulder and asked her: "Do you know why is this day special? Today we are celebrating 60 years of marriage." Then he did something I have never seen in my life before. He kissed her lips three times and I can tell you this was complete awww-moment. She was just looking at him smiling. Thinking of that make my eyes full of tears. That much of a rude swordsman, huh? 😛
He bought her a flowers and my aunt brought a fruit cake.
Ten years ago, I asked him what was it like, how did they decide to got married.
"I was seeing her around", he said. "Then one day I decided to come to her on a street and ask her for a date. So, next weekend we went for a walk by the Danube. Another weekend we had date again, I took her to a circus and then walked her home. Third weekend I asked her to marry me…"
I was amazed. Their life was never easy. My grandmother already had a kid, my father, and he was a result of her crush with some bastard who let her down the moment he realised she was pregnant. Today it is not a big deal but in 1940s it was disgrace for both a family and a girl. But my grandpa never gave a second thought to that, he made a decision of his life and stick to that. They both did. And never regret it.
This is what I want for me. To look someone in the eyes 60 years from now and say that I still love her. Knowing it was the best choice in my life….
As I said, my grandma is not doing well lately; a photo I posted down there is made three years ago.
