A Real Love Story

February 14, 2013

I’ve been reading all the “most romantic” movie lists. Some are good, many leave me wondering how some folks even define love.

Mom and Dad 1946

My most romantic ‘movie?’

Easy. My Mom and Dad, married 62 years, in love every day from the first time they saw each other. He survived three wounds in WWII while she unknowingly waited for him back home.

Never saw them argue, because Dad knew the two most important words were always, “Yes Dear.” Only disagreement they ever had, they claim, was early in the marriage, when they did argue and dad stormed into the bedroom to pack: Only to emerge 10 minutes later asking if mom would help him fold his shirts.

If that’s not romance, I don’t know what is.
