Always Care for the Other

In our short time on this earth, most find someone special to love. I found two great
loves. My first has since gone to heaven. My second is my wife Ginny. We have a special
relationship, one I cherish.

Ginny knelt before me; her eyes filled with love and concern. My skin condition, which
the doctors have yet to diagnose, continued. I was in misery. She searched and learned oregano
might help.

She made me a suave of it.

Here she is applying it to my legs.

I sat and watched her.

I saw love in this picture. She carefully coats my legs and bandages them. It doesnít
matter how bad my skin looks. She does this out of concern and love for me.

True love knows no bounds.

This is what all spouses should do for each other. They care and understand the otherís
needs. They take care of each other.

There are no bounds on their journey through life. Together, they drift happily on the
river of life, until they are swallowed up by the vastness of the sea.
