Forty Years of Dance
“Can you believe it, Fred? This same band has been playing as long as we’ve been married!”
“No one could have predicted we would still be dancing to the same band on our fortieth wedding anniversary, that’s for sure!”
“We are so lucky to still be waltzing together after all these years,” laughed Lorraine as Fred twirled her in perfect time to the music.
“There is no where else in the world I would rather be than right here, with you in my arms, my Sweet Lorraine.”
And with another twirl and a dip, he went in for the kiss!

This story was inspired by a video I saw a while back. 96-year-old Fred entered a song-writing contest a short while after his wife of almost 73 years passed away. Green Shoe Studio (originators of the contest) were so moved that they decided to record his song with professional musicians and singer. I thought you might enjoy this as well! A little bonus, if you will!
