Spring and summer seem particularly dangerous for noticing couples. I live three blocks from a park and in the spring and summer, I often see couples there. They walk and hold hands, ride their bikes together, or sit on a park bench enjoying time together. Thankfully, there are many dogs in the park, which makes me happy. So I try to focus on the dogs and ignore the couples. But they are everywhere! It hurts my heart to see all of them. Reg and I used to take daily walks in the park. We had sat on the park benches just chatting and observing the scenery. Now, I have to witness other couples doing that.
I distinctly remember one summer Friday night when I was sitting on my front porch. I watched as the couple next door walked to their car, got in, and drove off somewhere. Who knows where they went. Maybe it wasn’t even anywhere interesting or exciting. But, the destination didn’t matter; they were together. I used to get in the car with my husband and go somewhere on a Friday night. The woman got in the passenger seat just like I used to get into the passenger seat. Now, I watched another couple do what we used to do while I sat at home alone on a Friday night.
