Wanda 和 Joe 是一對已經結婚 63 年的夫妻,兩人的孫女兼攝影師 Shalyn Nelson 為他們拍攝了一輯紀念婚紗照片,讓不少網民覺得相當感動。

兩人於 1950 年認識,當時 Joe 看到 Wanda 走在街上,就向她搭訕並說和她約會,這種浪漫情節於現今社會已經很少見了吧?攝影師(孫女)說,一直以來看到兩人都非常恩愛,所以希望幫他們拍攝一輯有紀念性的照片,於是兩老就換上如婚禮一樣的服裝拍攝。

「Walking through life together… But the trail is getting short.」 – My Papaw, Joe R. Johnson I’ve been quiet around here lately. There are many reasons, but most importantly, I’ve been a ball of stress and nerves because my Papaw went back into the hospital last week. On Thursday, we were told that he wouldn’t make it through the night. Oddly enough, I got this news right after I watched Miracles in Heaven. (You should watch it if you haven’t!) My Mom tried to prep me for the inevitable because he’s been in and out of the hospital a lot these past few months and hasn’t got any better. I decided to be stubborn, naturally, and forced myself to stay positive and hopeful through many tears that took over my face when she told me things weren’t looking good. I got off the phone and I went to my knees and prayed hard for God to give my Papaw strength more than I think I ever have before. And here we are, a week later, and the man is still fighting. The Dr.’s performed a heart ablation surgery on Friday that they didn’t think he would be strong enough to make it through. But he did. He has fluid on his lungs and his kidneys are slowly starting to fail because of all the medications, but he’s still fighting. Because he’s a bad ass. ? As you know, this man means the world to me. So when I saw that @buzzfeed featured my grandparents today on their blog… My heart swelled. The timing could not be more perfect. It’s such a beautiful reminder to us all. Because when our lives want to fail us… in the end, the only thing that matters and remains is love. Head on over to check it out. Link is in my profile. ❤️ And please keep my grandparents in your prayers if you can. My Mamaw hasn’t left his side. #lovethenelsonsproject #oldlovebook #ohwowyes
