A few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I were at a coffee shop after work just having an evening chill session. This elderly couple walked in holding hands but the gentleman had a cane and it seemed the lady was leading the way. After getting their order the settled into a corner and it was absolutely adorable.
The guy was obviously blind, but he would casually stoke his wife’s hair telling her that she was beautiful over and over again. It was really sweet. She helped him to the door of the men’s room, which I was already in, and as him and I were washing up, I asked him since he was blind how could he tell how beautiful his wife was.
He smiled and told me that he had been blind for 55 years, and that the image of his wife in his head is from 55 years ago, and she would always be that beautiful person in his mind.
