Three months ago, she lost her husband of over forty years. As she was speaking to the group about her husband, she looked me right in the eye and said,
" You fall in and out of love. When you're out of love, he's your best friend."
She was talking about her relationship with her deceased husband, but she was re-reminding me of the choice my husband and I make each and every day to love one another. I needed that reminder.
I'm glad she decided to come to our bereavement group yesterday.
