Timeless Love

My "Beach Bear"
Dedicated to My husband

Submitted by Elizabeth

The new millennium has not been kind to my husband, who goes by the affectionate nickname of "Bear" due to his height, huggable form, broad shoulders, dark complexion, fondness for fish, and somewhat gruff exterior, which conceals a gentle and boyish spirit. A widower when I met him a decade ago, he has since, unexpectedly, lost his youngest sister and has borne his grief while working a demanding job investigating distressing crime scenes. My ursuline mate calls me "Kitty" due to my high-strung temperament and finicky eating habits. Obviously, we both could benefit from a vacation -- and the natural place for us to enjoy romance and relaxation is Hawaii.

Although I have been to Hawaii twice -- two decades ago with my mother and sister and ten years ago with my former college roommate, Margaret, I have never experienced the beauty and tranquility of the islands with my husband.

I can just imagine him unwinding at last under the Hawaiian sun with palm trees swaying in the breeze, the "Bear" nestled in a hammock overlooking a sun-kissed beach and tranquil sea, relaxing to "Beach Boys" music -- especially fitting for this occasion -- and holding an entertaining book in one "paw," and a nice, cold beverage in the other. A hot stone massage at one of the fabled spas would gently release the stress from sore joints. We would stroll "paw in paw" along the warm sands of the beach, viewing gorgeous vistas, and hike along lush trails admiring the unique flora and fauna of the island. In the evening we would share the view of a wondrous Hawaiian sunset from our lanai.

Aw…Bliss for Bear and Kitty! Together in an earthly paradise.
