Even after she suffered memory loss and brain damage from a devastating stroke, these two people stay committed to one another.
Love is all that matters.
John Allen, 82-years-old, takes his longtime girlfriend, Linda Alexander, 70, to the coffee shop several times a week to help her relearn how to read. Five years ago, she suffered a stroke that left her unable to speak and partially paralyzed on the right side of her body.
Yet, she could speak the words, “I love you.”
And, yet, her partner stayed by her side, helping her every step of the way.
These are two people who are wholly present in their love for one another.
Love is about being there, showing up and committing to another person.
It’s a courageous and selfless act.
And it is worth its weight in gold.
