My wife, Ginny, has been helping her daughter for months. We have only been
together for a few weekends during this time.

Ginny came home on August 18th, 2016 for a visit.

We talked a lot on that Thursday night. We held hands. We kissed. We slept
cuddled against each other.

On the Saturday after she arrived home, we sat on the sofa. I was on my laptop.
Ginny was on her tablet. We barely spoke.

Every so often Iíd look over to her, smile and tell her I loved her.

Ginny turned, smiled and repeated my words.

We didnít have to speak.

We have a love, where we are comfortable just being together. No words need to be
spoken.

We both lost our first spouses. Togetherness was lost with them. We have a second
chance at love and enjoy every minute we are together.

Not many words need to be spoken to convey love.

It's in our eyes, when we stare at each other.

It's in the way we cuddle, when we sleep.

It's in the aura that envelopes us.

That's love
