This December, my parents will have been married fifty years. I took this picture on my trip home last month. My mom is now rarely conscious for long. Every day, my dad drives about 20 miles round trip just to visit her for an hour. What a gift to know I never have to question whether I've seen and known love.


  1. Hey,
    This is a beautiful post...and I'm touched by it. Glad you can see what a blessing it is being exposed to true love and compassion. I'm sorry to hear that your Mom is not well. You continually impress me, Sam, though it's never a surprise...I've always been impressed by you.


  2. I wish there was a "like" button for this post. Was just thinking about you, Sam -- and wondering what you are up to! - K. Calkins
