As the bus driver watched the old couple, help each other off the bus, one with a cane, and the other with a walker, she did offer to help. But the two knew each other so well, they knew when to hold on, and when to step down.
The bus driver hesitated, as she watched them walk away slowly. And as she closed the door and took her foot off the brake, she saw the husband lean over and pick a wildflower off of a bush, and give it to his wife. It was a little blue flower. She wondered how long the old couple had been married, as she smiled from ear to ear.
The bus driver was changed that day, and decided that love was worth it after all. She would try love again……someday.
