Love Happens #10 – “Charming Garderners”

Here’s a wonderful quote by Marcel Proust,

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

“It’s been almost 40 years. We’ve been married since 1972. We have 3 daughters, and we’re here to visit our son who works here. He just completed school.” "What's your secret for a happy marriage?" "Simple… We just take care of each others’ needs.  He keeps me happy. I keep him happy. So we are happy!" Before we parted, they smiled and thanked us for the picture. “Come to New Delhi one day!”

“It’s been almost 40 years. We’ve been married since 1972. We have 3 daughters, and we’re here to visit our son who works here. He just completed school.”
“What’s your secret for a happy marriage?”
“Simple… We just take care of each others’ needs.
He keeps me happy. I keep him happy.
So we are happy!”
Before we parted, they smiled and thanked us for the picture.

It’s not easy to be happily together for decades but with effort, and love, it’s possible. Happiness is key to a relationship and life itself. Happiness allows our souls to achieve satisfaction and more importantly, fulfillment. Other than happiness, another important lesson from this couple is that on dependence and support. I found this lovely couple’s simple philosophy extremely inspirational – they are dependent on each other and allow themselves to trust in the other to make them happy, to care and to love them.

When people fall in love, they give their heart to their partner, expecting them to handle it with care, because it’s fragile. When someone gives his/her heart to you, treat it with both sensitivity and love. Treasure it and be grateful that you’ve been chosen among a sea of thousands, millions and billions to own his/her heart.

Mutual dependence, encouragement and support are characteristics of stable, healthy and strong relationships. It is in this dependency that we feel a powerful bond with our partner, shared with no other, making the relationship a really special and unique one. And that bond is what constitutes ‘love’.

Love is a beautiful thing, so celebrate it this Christmas. (:

With Christmas Love,
