Touched My Heart

Today I will be sharing you guys about a scene which I saw while I was walking from North East Line (Purple) to the East West Line (Green). I saw an elderly couple while I was on my way to meet my family for dinner.

The first thing I noticed was that the Husband had spine problems as his spine was really crooked and he could not walk with a straight back like normal people. What caused me to constantly look at them is he was holding onto the Wife's hand as they walk. 

Usually, old couples that I see in the public will walk along each other's side but they will not hold their partner's hand so I was really intrigued by this scene. Furthermore, the way the Husband held the Wife's hand just feels different as compared to other couples. It was a deep feeling as he guided and led her to the correct direction to the train platform.

The Wife looked much healthier physically than the Husband so I was a little surprised and curious why the Husband was constantly looking out for her because normally in my opinion, it should be the other way around as the healthier one looks after the weaker one. It further "tickled" my curiosity!!
As I was walking in the same direction as them, I was able to continue to observe what they did. They did not separate their hands until they reach the elevator where they stand in a single file like everybody else to make way for the people who are rushing. 

Initially, I thought to myself "Oh! I don't think they would be holding their hands again after taking the elevator." However, I was wrong! The Husband held out his hand to hold hers and held it tightly as they board the train with the rest of the crowd (it was rush hour when this happened).

He made sure she has a seat first and had nicely settled down before he sits down on a seat which is long given up by another passenger. It was really sweet to see him able to pay attention and tend to such small little things to his wife even after being together for such a long period of time.

There are a lot of married couples (not all, but majority of what I have observed) out there nowadays, whom I have observed whenever I walk along the streets or in the malls, have come to neglect such small little actions and considerations after marriage as they don't think there is a need to do such things anymore as compared to when they were still dating. And worse still, the longer they are married together, the lesser and lesser they do for each other.

This, in my opinion, causes feelings to fade and give rise to divorces as people stop making an effort to shower care and concern to their partners after marriage, especially for those who are married for a long time.

Hence, it is really EXTREMELY rare to see old couples still very much lovey dovey like boyfriends-girlfriends nowadays! So my heart was really touched and warmed when I saw this pair of elderly couple acting like as though they were still in their initial stage of courtship (or dating you may call). :) It really made my day! :D

I hope in future I would be able to see more married couples being so sweet to each other no matter how small the actions are. It is the caring heart that matters at the end of it all. 

(And hopefully, in future, I hope I will be able to have a marriage that will stay sweet and caring for as long as I live :D)

So remember, whenever you are taking public transports or just shopping around in the mall, take a little time out to observe your surrounding environment. You may end up witnessing something nice and heartwarming which will put a smile on your heart (and face). :D
