深愛 (老人家照顧伴侶) Deepest Love ( Taking care of an elderly spouse)

對老人家來說,”照顧您一生一世”是什麼意思?For seniors, what does “Love and honor you all the days of my life” mean?

有些老人家相信自己<心力交瘁>地照顧自己的伴侶,便是最深愛的表現。
Some seniors believe the way to show deepest love is to exhaust oneself to take care of a spouse.

<自我犧牲>可以是深愛的表現方式之一。 “Self sacrifice” can be one of the deepest forms of love.

但深愛就要等同<自我犧牲>嗎?But does deepest love have to always mean “self sacrifice”?

其實,自愛、自己照顧好自己先,不是更加能照顧自己的伴侶嗎?Actually, won’t it be better if senior takes care of oneself first so that the spouse can be better taken care off?

“照顧您一生一世”,不是”一時三刻”的愛,不是”玉石俱焚”的愛,是長時間慢步人生的愛,是”一生一世”的愛。”Love and honor you all the days of my life” can’t be an exhaustive short sprint when a long marathon run, actually a life long slow walk as a better analogy.

深愛這題材,我推介Nicholas Sparks的小說及電影”The Notebook”. “Deepest love” as a theme, I highly recommend Nicholas Sparks’ novel “The Notebook” and the movie.
