This is Freddie and Betty. Three years ago, shortly after Wayne died, I saw this sweet couple walking hand-in-hand around the track at the CAC.
It made me sad.
It made me feel so alone.
Why didn’t we get a chance to grow old together?￼￼
But then I decided to be happy for them; happy that they had many years of memories. ￼And with a few tears in my eyes, I stopped them and asked how long they’d been married. Freddy replied, “She’s been putting up with me for 60 years!”￼￼
This morning, I saw them walking on the track.
They still have each other and it still makes me really happy. ￼
Don’t be jealous or envious of what others have been given. Instead be grateful and thankful￼ for what YOU have been given.
