Holding hands

Denny and I held hands on our wedding day. Such a happy day.  A new start of our life together. We have been holding hands all these years.  Sometimes in need of support but most of the time because ....just because. This morning when the telephone rang around 7 am, I welcomed the interruption.  I  have been unsuccessful in assembling my Ott light back into the floor stand. I saw The Brother Alan was calling and thought he was checking up on me already......just left yesterday! No, the Hospice center called him to say that Denny is not doing well. Time is limited. So.....here I sit once again holding hands. This time because I  am waiting for my Dennis to say good-bye.
