My husband likes to send me sweet love messages each week--especially after difficult parenting nights of no sleep, stressful days of having too much to do and too little time, or on mornings after he leaves the house when things already looked disastrous. He recognizes those to be my most challenging days.
Sometimes his message is a video clip, sometimes it's an audio clip, or sometimes it's a thoughtful love letter he wrote during the only free 5 minutes he had at work that day. It's a lovely reminder that the messiness of life doesn't affect his love for me. In reality, experiencing those difficult days actually brings a deeply in-love couple even closer together, if anything. Don't you think?
Today's message was a video clip he sought on YouTube.
His attached note read, simply: just thinkin' of you, honey...
...and that's all it needed to read. :swoon: I love that man. Madly.
1) The explanation of how we act when we're first falling for someone--how, no matter how stupid the stuff we talk about might be, inside we're only thinking, and I quote: "Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful, and, yet again, wonderful!"
2) I love how they turn into children half way through...innocent and full of all the potential and joy of new companionship. The high heels shot is precious.
3) I'll always have a soft spot for Enya. She provides unexpected emotional release through soulful music.
4) I love how the statues (lions) bow in their presence.
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
