My SO and I have both been extra mushy this weekend. And it is moments like these – with all of its dreams and hopes and love – that make this time in our lives feel so special…
Unprompted, he said on the phone today that he was reading a story and it reminded him of me. He then went on to read parts of the story about an elderly man describing his enduring love for his wife and what it has meant for him to live with her into old age. As he read it, the story was so touching and so beautiful that I became all teary as I imagined our own life together. Unfortunately, we had to cut the conversation short, but I sent him a text later telling him how much the story touched me. And he responded,
“It touched me as well, and I wanted to share it with you. Because for all my protestations, I too find that beautiful. I could ask for nothing more from this life than to spend it with you.”
Needless to say, this has been a wonderful waiting day! Anyone else have a mushy moment to share?
