TSMSS - I Want To Be Like Them When I Grow Up!

This. Is. Precious. My sweet friend Xandra sent this to me and it has made me smile ever since. I gave her "first dibs" on posting it, but she's busily preparing to desert us Texas folks for enemy Sooner territory move up to Oklahoma.

Not that I'm bitter or sad or anything.

Actually, I'm happy for Xandra and her family and how God is putting the pieces into place for them.

Especially the fact that there is Blue Bell up there! I've just been blessed to actually enjoy her friendship in person a few times, which is a rare thing among blog friends!

Anyway, this couple is just adorable. They have been married for 62 years, and he turned 90 in February. This was videotaped last fall in the atrium area of the Mayo clinic. What's really neat is when I went to download the video, I discovered the story behind it, and it's posted below as well. There's nothing cuter than two people who have been married forever and still enjoy each other and life!

What a blessing, and an increasingly rare privilege, it is to see folks that have stayed married for the long haul. Yet another reason this is the Greatest Generation. Of course, I have to feature a song that honors such tender and lasting love!

I saw that video in Kim Komando's newsletter, Linda and I'm also going to post it. I think it is just precious. I don't see how they can stand up and play like that!

Hi! Thanks for sharing this--can really warm the heart! Music does wonder for souls so I won't be surprised if they say that one thing that kept them together is that. Music.

LOL! Enemy territory, huh? You crack me up! It's been wonderful spending time with you in person too, and I'm sure that I will be making trips to Texas to see Beth and the Siesta Fiestas again! We'll be sure and make plans to have lunch...and dinner...and coffee...well, you get the picture!

After I saw that video, I couldn't stop smiling...
