We fall in love because we long to escape from ourselves with someone as beautiful, intelligent, and witty as we are ugly, stupid, and dull. But what if such a perfect being should one day turn around and decide they will love us back? We can only be somewhat shocked-how can they be as wonderful as we had hoped when they have the bad taste to approve of someone like us?
i don't want us to be those parents who never act romantic in front of their children. i want our kids to learn how to really love somebody because we led by example. so kiss me in the kitchen while i'm pouring cereal, cuddle with me on the couch during family movie night, and hold my hand while we grocery shop. let's show them what true love looks like, so when the find it for themselves, they'll never let it go.
