My husband is not a writer. He is an orator. He does not leave me daily love notes and I cannot remember any time he’s ever written me a letter other than a card. But not a day goes by that he doesn’t tell me he loves me… And he’s been saying it for 22 years. And every time he says it, it feels like the first time.
“When a guy is happily married, no matter what happens at work, no matter what happens in the rest of the day,” Danny said, “there’s a shelter when you get home, there’s a knowledge, knowing that you can hug somebody without them throwing you down the stairs and saying, ‘Get your hands off me.’ Being married is like having a color television set; you never want to go back to black and white.”
I hope you all had a pleasant day with families and friends. There is so much to be thankful for despite all the bad news lately. And really, if you look, there is so much beauty, love and hope around us. Just look at the video below. Most of the time we catch people in the act of being bad but if we look, we also catch many being good.
Usually, I would have fallen off the wagon on the first week of blogging everyday but here I am, almost halfway through the month and haven’t missed a day yet! If you’ve been keeping up, there were days when I did wimp out and posted a quick photo or infographic just to be able to say DONE! for the day. And that’s ok… there’s no hard and fast rules about what you should be posting for NaBloPoMo… just that you should post everyday.
I think I deserve another break for reaching the half-way point, don’t you think? So I’ll leave this post short and sweet. I leave you with this collection of love songs from the 80’s and 90’s to keep you company. If you’re around my age, I’m sure you’ll hear at least one song that brings back at least one memory.
Just for fun, tell me which song and memory. Have a great day!
