We watched the movie, "The Vow" Saturday morning. Actually, we watched a double feature; "Safe House" and then "The Vow" as a sort of compromise. He wanted to watch an action movie. But, he did not want me to be disappointed. I enjoyed the first one tremendously, but had been waiting to see The Vow. And, likewise, Larry was not sure he would enjoy that one as much as me, so we watched both. He was surprised to enjoy The Vow too. It was based on a true story, about a young married couple in a car accident. She wakes up from a coma with no memory of him. The past couple years are erased and she remembers only her family back home. He tries to make her fall in love with him again, because he is like a stranger to her. He had vowed to never forget his love for her, and he fought to fulfill that vow. I won't spoil the ending for you, but it was a good movie.
Love is an action rooted in decision. I love my husband. There is no part kept back. Nothing left over. No mad money. I subscribe to making him happy. I do not study his flaws, but how I can meet his needs. I love him for all the good he has brought into my life. I do not take that for granted. And, I am pleased to see that he does not take me for granted. I love the eagerness with which he tries to right a wrong when I mention some small complaint or we argue. He wants to please me. It is evident. Likewise, he instantly lightens up at my apology. He knows how much I respect and admire him.
But, then again, we've only been married a year and a half. I haven't yet begun to love him. I hope your Valentine is a spotless love.
