Today as I was …

Today as I was walking through a parking lot I passed an elderly couple.  The man was a few steps ahead of his wife and he hadn’t realized that she had stopped to take something out of her shoe.  I was passing him, but he obviously thought I was his wife.  He didn’t look at me but started talking.

He told her (me) to tread carefully around a section and ended it off with “my darling.”  I realized that he thought I was his wife, (you know how that happens sometimes) but instead of saying something I just left him to carry on talking.  Why? Well because he was talking to her (me now) so sweetly and I especially liked the amount of times he used the word “darling.”  Then he stopped looked at me and smiled, his wife also saw what happened.  What a lovely couple.  They both laughed and she said she sees he can still hold a younger woman’s attention. How sweet it was.

I suppose I stole a few sweet words that were meant for her for myself, just for a few seconds…but it was worth hearing gentle words from a gentle voice. It was little medicine for my soul today.

  1. Strangely, the link provided by your comment on my blog contains an ‘invalid character’ and won’t work until it is deleted.
    It tries to connect as hope*thehappyhugger and the * has to be zapped.

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
