Barbara Bush, who found joy as a wife and a mother, can inspire us all  by Jackie Pilossoph for Chicago Tribune Media Group

The former first lady, wife to President George H.W. Bush and mother of President George W. Bush, died on Tuesday at the age of 92.

Dedicated to making a difference in the world through causes that included homelessness, AIDS, the elderly and perhaps most memorably, national literacy, Bush was equally (if not more) committed to her family, which included her six children and the love of her life, George H.W. Bush.

Can you imagine saying good-bye to someone you’ve been with for almost three-quarters of a century? It’s beyond heartbreaking, especially since it seemed the Bushes were just as in love in their 90s as they were when they met as teenagers.

How did they stay so blissful?
