Blame it on the romantic movies I watched, but my head is in the clouds about love today. How love begins, and grows, and fades or lasts. How love can be ever-present in your life, or how it can appear out of the blue, when you least expect it. I feel so blessed that I grew up in a home where I saw how much my parents loved each other. And I am so very thankful I have a love of my own with Ethan, and we are wonderfully married. It is hard for me to believe that a year ago we weren’t even engaged–he was in Virginia of all places and I was still in school. But time brings change, and I am so in love with where my life has taken me.
You may be wondering what movies I watched, and of course it was a combination of ABC Family and our free Redbox rental The Vow. Oh, I really enjoyed that movie! I had tears in my eyes the entire time watching, and by the end of it I was just staring at Ethan, so thankful. If some sort of trauma occurred to either one of us and we couldn’t remember five years back, we would be in very similar situations to the characters in the movie. Whirlwind romance, remember? But I don’t think I’d protest if I woke up from a coma and Ethan told me we were married. How Rachel first rejected Channing in the hospital is still lost on me.
I hope today you realize how much you are loved.
