My mom and dad are still in love after almost 58 years of marriage.
While I already knew how special they were to each other–through thick and thin–when my mom took my dad’s hand at the table, and said he has always been the love of her life, it was just beautiful.
Their life has certainly not been easy–escaping from Nazi Germany as children, losing most of their education, and coming to this country with literally nothing. But they worked hard, worshipped G-d dutifully, gave charitably, and greatly valued their family and friendships above everything else in this world.
They are good people and a wonderful role model to all of us, and we have always been like one extended family.
I’ll always remember when my mom took his hand and said how much he meant to her–it was awesome!
May God bless them both, always. 😉
