Love After 50

When someone totally unexpected comes into your life, it shakes it all up, turning everything upside down/inside changes everything.  It changes what you thought you wanted; it changes your plans for the future; it opens new doors; it quietly closes old ones; and it opens your heart and mind to life's adventures.

"Take me by the hand", I tell this man, "and I'll follow you anywhere."

The sudden realization of complete trust and unconditional love is an overwhelming wonderment, one of humanity's miracles.  It's as amazing to find yourself giving it, as well as receiving it.
