a little love story for Valentines Day

A sweet love story
::link to 60 tiny love stories where I found this::


Today, my 75-year-old grandpa 
who has been blind from cataracts 
for almost 15 years said to me, 
“Your grandma is just the most beautiful thing, isn’t she?” 
I paused for a second and said, “Yes she is. I bet you miss seeing that beauty on a daily basis.” 
“Sweety,” my grandpa said, 
“I still see her beauty every day. 
In fact, I see it more now than I used to when we were young.”

I read every one.
I cried and cried.
I don't know if they are all true. I don't care.
I am glad they made me feel something tonight. 
Aren't you glad there is a day to celebrate love?
I have to think of something special to do for Kaish and Gary. 
Creativity has been low on my list of things that must get done lately, but, 
Valentines Day absolutely positively
must.get.done.

Spread some love.

Hi Anita, this wasn't my Grandpa. I never met my mom's dad as he passed the year before I was born. My pop pop passed away when I was 9 in 1985. This was just a sweet story I read today.

Privet and Holly said...

I totally get what
your grandpa is
saying.....your grandma
has true beauty,
and you don't need
eyes to see it!

I think their granddaughter
inherited it, too : )

Love and hugs to
you this Valentine's Day!

Nothing beats a good love story. It's amazing to think God loves us even more than the sweetest people in the world. Mind boggling. I have a feeling your Kaishon and Gary know how much you love them, too. Even if it is just expressed in an extra long hug tonight. :) Hope you have a wonderful Valetine's Day!

I agree with the wise old man, we see more beauty with our heart than with out eyes.
I hope your day was special....YOU are a sweetheart.
