He tipped his hat and winked at the clerk as he walked through the door. She nodded in return and gave him a genuine smile. It lit up her face and filled his heart with gladness.
Once upon a time, the smile would have been a swoon and he might have asked her for a date. But not today. His youthful looks had gone the way of the radio and now the girls thought he was cute, instead of handsome.
It was no matter. He had lived a full life, his beautiful bride by his side and today, when he entered the pharmacy it was to pick up the medicines which kept her heart beating strong and true. Still, he couldn’t help but smile at the young ladies. He couldn’t stop chatting with the young men. He had so much love to give to everyone around him.
