Real Love Makes You Cry

Last night, David held me while I cried about what he probably thought of as nothing. What made me cry? He did. His sincerity.

When David made it home from work late yesterday evening, he walked in, hugged me and kissed me. Asked what was for dinner. Everything seemed normal. Around 8, he asked if we could go to bed earlier than normal. I didn't want to, but agreed since he swears he can't sleep without me in bed. When I came out of our bathroom, David was standing there with a little white teddy bear, a card and a ring box. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him all over again. That was sweet. But, the card made me cry.

"Deb, I have never once felt worthy of you and the less you ask for, the more I want to give. Today, I thought of everything I could to give you but all I have is already yours, especially my heart. Then I remembered you never had that carriage ride nor the cathedral train and I never had the chance to use the personalized vows I wrote in my heart the day I first laid eyes on you. I am but a man but you are an angel. You are the best mother and the sweetest wife. You are, even on your worst days, a million light years ahead of every other woman in my eyes. How else can I tell you, Mrs. Todd, that I am in love and my whole life is yours? When I woke up this morning, I looked over and tears came because I saw you again. Sorry I didn't buy you a funny card. I decided on a blank one because Hallmark hadn't caught up with real life love yet."

I can't tell you how much good it does my heart to know that you are truly appreciated, Debbie. So glad the two of you found each other. And thanks for showing the world that true love really is alive and flourishing in more marriages than the world knows about. It does in mine, and I'm glad it does in yours too!
