The Most Adorable Elderly Couple Dances In The Rain
Love is friendship caught fire; it is quiet, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection, and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, hopes for the future, and does not brood over the past. It is the day-in and day-out chronicles of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you do not have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough." Love. What a small word we use for an idea so immense and powerful. It has altered the flow of history, calmed monsters, kindled works of art, cheered the forlorn, turned tough guys to mush, consoled the enslaved, driven strong women mad, glorified the humble, fueled national scandals, bankrupted robber barons, and made mincemeat of kings. How can love’s spaciousness be conveyed in the narrow confines of one syllable?
Love is an ancient delirium, a desire older than civilization, with taproots spreading into deep and mysterious days. The heart is a living museum. In each of its galleries, no matter how narrow or dimly lit, preserved forever like wondrous diatoms, are our moments of loving, and being loved.
Marriage is a commitment to life, to the best that two people can find and bring out in each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other human relationship can equal; a joining that is promised for a lifetime. Within the circle of its love, marriage encompasses all of life’s most important relationships. A wife and a husband are each other’s best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic. There may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing, and the love of the other may resemble the tender caring of a parent for a child. Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller; memories are fresher; commitment is stronger; even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly. Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences, and new ways of expressing love through the seasons of life. When two people pledge to love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique to themselves, which binds them closer than any spoken or written words. Marriage is a promise, a potential, made in the hearts of two people who love, which takes a lifetime to fulfill.
There is something about rain that makes us behave differently. It seems like it’s heightening all of our senses and makes us reevaluate life and become even more grateful for it. The tiny droplets of magic serve as a cleanser for all of our bad days, wiping the grime clean off of our souls and patching up broken relationships and strengthening existing ones.
The rain has been worshiped ever since ancient times. Rain means fertile soils and clean homes, it means food and it means wealth. There are records of rituals done in the honor of rain, to assure that it would nourish the crops and provide food, but this footage isn’t such a custom. This footage shows a different kind of ritual where two elderly people dance in the rain to show that age won’t ever slow them down. This couple might show signs of aging on their skin, but they have remained young on the inside.
It is very important to maintain the innocence you had as a child as intact as possible. It’s what makes us alive, not just living. A precious moment is caught on film during a rainy day at The Village in Meridian, Idaho. An elderly couple proves they're young at heart as they dance in the rain. They won’t let a few drops of water tarnish their good mood. We should all be more like them!
