I was rummaging through my home files for some boring, mundane but absolutely necessary task – finances, organizational planning or some such matter – when I came across this card I had kept from goodness knows when:
And my whole day changed!
Inside it says,
It’s still a wonder to me
that in all the world,
I found the single most
beautiful friend, lover, and woman to be my wife.
How precious you are to me …
I love you.
And then on the left-hand side, my husband had written:
Thank you for being so awesome and loving me these many years and I look forward with excitement to the future because we have God on our side and I have you with me. I love you!!! 🙂
Most of the time I am one of the least romantic and mushy people around (flowers? You can’t eat them and they die on you – why are these considered good gifts?), but I confess that moments like these remind me why greeting cards have stayed so popular for so long.
Maybe one of these days we’ll have no more paper greeting cards – we can get them on phones, laptops and tablets – but it’s still the thought, the expression, the love and effort behind them that count.
