Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful,
and MOST Wonderful!

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.

He's right.

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.

For some reason, it isn't allowing me to embed the video so you have to actually visit the link. It's very short:

A few things to note:

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.

Am I the only one with chills, here?!

That's so wonderful and sweet. And it makes me so happy to hear about how in love with your husband you still are. It gives me a lot of hope. I'm so obsessed with mine, but I always worry that it will some day fade (I like to think it would have by now, though).
