Things my Husband says that Make Me Laugh

On the way to the center the other day, my husband was holding my hand and he said, "Holding hands makes me feel young."

I laughed.

I laughed the laugh of youth, of a teen-age girl who is first discovering the power of the affection of another. I giggled the carefree laugh of a girl, free to enjoy life with the brightness of a future ahead of her. I howled for hope. I grinned even while I ached, because I felt his words so deeply, so truly.

I laughed for truth.

We smiled, knowing that what we held in our hands was more powerful than any short-lived youth.

And on this particular new young spring day, we turned our faces to the sun, hand in hand, in gratefulness.
