Overheard at a physical therapy office…

An elderly gentleman sat in the quiet waiting room and played a game on his tablet, when an elderly woman came out of the doctor’s office and stood next to him.

“Harry, I’m ready,” she said to him.

“I’m just finishing this level. Hold on.”

“Harry,” she said with a playful nudge.

“Okay.” A few more presses on the screen and he stood up kissed her cheek. Sympathy in his voice, he asked, “Did they hurt you?”

“A little.”

“Are you alright?”

“Yeah, I guess.” She started for the exit.

He held the door open for her and said, “Is there anything I can do?” and the door closed behind them.

After they left I stared at the closed door with a smile of gratitude for being allowed to share in that sweet, supportive moment. May we all be so blessed with a long life and a supportive mate.
