I rarely share links, but I came across this yesterday, and it touched my heart. Real difficulties happen to real couples, but in addition to making me cry a little, this video also uplifted my heart because it showed (in an animated form, which is easier to take in) how love strengthened an elderly couple together for more than 25 to years and enabled them to go on every day, and later, even in heartbreak. Being a part of a couple involves thinking about the other person, with a love that grows in capacity to care about the other person more than yourself. It changes the way you are able to love others, and gives you a heritage to pass on to others if you tell them your story.
Would you like StoryCorps to turn your story into an animation to share with others? Were you inspired? Comment and let me know!
