I just had one of those Oprah 'ah-ha' moments...as I was typing this I realized that why I love these three couples so much is because they remind me of my parents. Even when Parkinson's Disease slowed my father's body it couldn't keep his spirit down, and it certainly didn't stop my mother from loving him, caring for him, and respecting him until his time on earth was ended. When my parents vowed to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part they meant it.
Favorite movie couples: Carl and Ellie (Up--Disney)
Noah and Allie, from The Notebook:
and Richard and Elise (from Somewhere in Time, film by Jeannot Szwarc)
and finally, thank you to my mother and father, who showed me what true love is all about:
