These are my great grandparents. Last week my Oma had a stroke and has had a very difficult recovery. My Opa, her husband, who doesn't really like to leave the house much these days, has been there every day. He does it for her. This is a picture of real love. No gimmicks. No fanfare. Love doesn't have to cross an ocean to be real, sometimes it just has to cross a room. This is something I will always treasure. A beautiful perfect example of selfless real love.
I think that's better than The Notebook if you ask me.
**My Oma will be released to rehab facility tomorrow. She is a fighter!
