Sunny Side Up

“The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth,
the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.”
- Jiddu Krishnamurti -

This week’s end of the week smile is a video about an elderly couple’s heartwarming devotion to each other and the meaning of true love. It will touch your very soul.


A beautiful weekend to you all!

  1. Whew, this really hit home for me and I'm sitting here crying like a blubbering idiot. My Dad is in a nursing home and at the end of his life. My Mom goes to visit him twice a day. Ironically they celebrated their 50th anniversary last year too.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that about your dad. It must be a hard time for all of you, and certainly emotional for your mom. {{Strength to all of you}}

  2. Wonderful. This present generation, with its lax morals, faithlessness, and high rates of divorce, has so very much to learn from them. Such compassion, gentleness, commitment, plain thoughtfulness -- yes, it surely is God that has put such a love in their hearts.

    "Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds.. O no! It is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle's compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom".

    1. This present generation can certainly learn something from this couple. This is what caring about someone is all about. People are not to be thrown away when they become weak or in need of help. That's when you show whether you truly love them or not!

      That is a beautiful quotation!

  4. Hi Martha!
    I've been catching up on all your posts, because it's been a very busy week for me too!
    I always enjoy your cartoons ~ like your recent Maxine post ~ hysterical.

    Your photos and videos are always a hoot or touching or both. I just loved this post about the elderly couple. How very sad to get Alzheimer's ~ that has got to be the worst. But the princess was very fortunate in her prince. Looks like there are at least three greatest guys in the world!

    Thanks for your information on the powershot camera. I have to make a decision shortly about a new one. I'm looking for zoom and low light capabilities. So I will check out your model too.

    When I get back from Hawaii, I'm going to tackle my "commode room." I haven't painted in over 20 years, but I'm going to do it. Well, actually after I have the carpet in the master bath replaced by tile which has been on my list since we moved in. Fortunately, the other bathrooms are tiled. Why is that??? What were the previous owners thinking?

    You are very good at sticking to blogging plans. I've given up on themes and schedules. The only routine I've been able to keep is seriously flossing and caring for my teeth. I've haven't missed a day in over 20 years ~ even with seven stints in the hospital.

    So good luck with your new plan, and so enjoy those days with your wonderful husband! I always look forward to your blog posts, few or many!
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Life can certainly keep us busy, can't it? I have a list of jobs ready to be tackled. I really want to get some things (finally) done this year. I know I'll feel so much better. And between all that, I want to get outdoors and have fun! I don't intend to give up blogging, but I think not posting on weekends will make a big difference.

    1. This is a very bittersweet story. I love how devoted they are to each other, but I hate that this poor woman became ill like this. It doesn't seem fair.
