Despite the cliché title,
I truly witnessed a love that brought me to tears
when I got home from work last night.
I work as a waiter at a hotel.
this elderly(Late 60's/Early 70's), seemingly wealthy couple came into the restaurant
and my co-worker seated them.
We usually do our own tables,
but because we were so busy last night
we helped each other out.
At one point
the elderly couple signaled to me
that they were ready to order.
Once again we were super busy
I usually find it rude when people go out of their way to make their order,
but once I took their order I understood why.
The husband began ordering
and started stuttering to an extent I've never heard before
It was very clear
that he had a speech disorder.
I could tell
the wife had told her husband very extensively what she wanted,
as a way for him to practice ordering.
It took a while for him to order,
and in the meantime
she was sitting there
and she looked so proud
despite her husband's immense stammering.
