Feel Good Moment of the Week

This morning I was at the Collierville YMCA (aka the Cowtown Y) swimming laps. I got out and went to the sauna to rest. I noticed that there was an old couple in the pool. They appeared to be in their 70s or 80s. The wife was unable to get in and out of the pool via the stairs obviously due to her limited walking ability. There is a machine that the Y has that will lower people into and raise them from the pool. The husband stood their with the lifeguard as the machine raised his wife out of the pool. The three of them were laughing and carrying on what seemed like a nice conversation. When the wife got out of the pool, the husband brought her walker to her. It was one of those dual walkers where you can walk and use hand brakes or just sit in it. Well, after she sat down, she reached over and grabbed her husband's hand. She squeezed it and said "thank you" to him. He smiled and had that glint in his eye where you know that they've been together for a long time and she still looks as beautiful to him today as she did when they met years ago. Then he went to the men's locker room and she went to the women's. I never saw them again and doubt if I will see them again. But for that one moment, they brightened my day.

Have a good one and don't get none on ya.

I've been listening to a lot of The Church lately. I forgot how good they were.
