Morning Love Notes
Making every day a lovely one.
You are note able....
"To someone I love, my husband, today and always. May our relationship endure forever. I love you and our family so very much. May God be with both of us on this day! Love, Your Wife"
This is just one of the notes I found waiting for me in the mornings I went off to work before she was even awake.
After reading her notes, I would write a love note of my own, and leave it for her to find at the start of her day.
Is this "mushy"? Not if you mean them. She does. I do.
And it makes a difference for both of us, for our children, and our grandchildren, and our other loved ones.
They don't read the notes. They just see the results. Two people who have learned to love and cherish each other, and who understand the meaning and treasure of constantly expressing that love.
There are variations of such loving notes, such as these: when one or the other of such a couple is leaving for several days, a week, a month, or a military tour, the notes are multiple, hidden around the house in places the one at home frequents from time to time, and the one leaving will find such notes got packed and traveled with them.
Letters, emails, photos, videos, even live video streams take over where finding notes had to end temporarily.
The lesson? Telling the one you love that you love them, is something which no one but you and they can do with all the depth and meaning that only the two of you share.
Sharing is what a life of love is all about, isn't it? We think it is noteworthy.
