Sunday News Bit and Happy Father’s Day
Husband takes makeup lessons – This story has been out for a while but it’s so touching that I had to mention it once I finally saw it.
A husband’s simple gesture of love for his wife is inspiring people around the world.
Mona Manahan, 82, has trouble doing her own makeup because of her deteriorating eyesight — so her husband of 56 years, Des Manahan, took lessons so he could apply it for her.
After taking several lessons, Des has apparently become quite the expert. He uses a light hand though as Mona’s eyes are sensitive.
But hearing Des’s thoughts on love and aging gracefully, it’s easy to see why their story has stuck such a chord.
“We’re not trying to look like 30-year-olds or 40-year-olds or 50-year-olds,” he said. “We both love each other as we are at 83 and 82, which I think is enough.”
And Happy Father’s Day everyone!
