Still As One

521Just two young kids who met in a high school parking lot: boy and girl, friends of friends.

Lights years ago or only yesterday? Love at first sight or infatuation?

Fuse lit, burned steadily, sparks flew. Engagement, marriage, children, careers. Laughter, arguments, making up, love.

Simple pleasures: leisurely walks, wrestling toddlers, playing with pets, ball games and vacations.

Faith sprouted. Questions answered. Peace arrived. Eternity drew near.

Trials and challenges, pain and sorrow, loss and grief, tears and disappointments.

Hope renewed. Love rewarded. Children married. Grandson born. More laughter.

Many goals met. Some dreams unrealized. Life mysteriously unfolding before us.

Uncertainty and certainty. Blurred perspective and clarity. Opinions that changed, and convictions which strengthened.

Still two kids and still in love. Still discovering, growing, hoping. Never alone.

Hands still held, lips still touch, jokes still told, content with each other.

Just two kids, totally changed, yet still the same. Paradox or metamorphism?

In love, in awe, incomplete without the other. Just two kids living life as one…since Cannonade won the Kentucky Derby!402
