"REAL" is a hand you hold for 57 years

the other day i went to target to get a few things. while i was walking in, there was an older couple walking in a little ways ahead of me. they looked to be about in their 70's. they just happened to catch my eye, and the thing that really stood out to me was that they were holding hands. it was very cute, and it made me think of a song (yes, a country song, what else?). the song is called "real" by james wesley. this is another one of those songs where after you hear it, you say "now THAT is country music". there are several lines in the song that really relate to real life. the song is mainly about how reality shows really aren't REAL life, and he quotes a bunch of things that really are real. the couple made me think of the line in the song "real is a hand you hold for 57 years". and that is real, it's not like some bachelor or bachelorette show where you get together than break up a month or two later. "real" is falling in love with somebody after dating him/her, and ONLY him/her, for a while, than marrying that person and staying with that person for the rest of your life. as i listen to this song for the first time, i thought that's what i want. i don't want to fake my life for any reason, i want to look back on my life and say that my life was real. goodbye for now, this is chezzy louise.

  1. Good post! We have a couple in the nursing home who have been married for 68 years. Actually she is there and he is still home. But he comes every afternoon to see her and almost every day she gets a back rub. It's so sweet to see that after 68 years!
