Yesterday evening I visited my aunt for her birthday. While I was there, a few other folks popped in to wish her including a elderly couple that live next door to her. This elderly gentleman said that in two weeks they would be celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary. Another guest tried to make a joke and said "Isn't that a bit too long with the same woman?"
The husband didn't hesitate for a moment, but replied "No, it hasn't been long, its gone so quickly. In fact, I feel like I'm just beginning to understand her and wish I had 50 more to enjoy it."
I love moments like that! When you learn something about the heart.
"the sweetness of a friend's counsel comes from the heart" Prov 27
