Do you ever catch yourself looking at somebody you see every day, a little differently? Tonight, my husband said something that was kind of funny in a dry, sarcastic manner. I looked at him without thinking and for whatever reason I found myself gazing at him finding him extremely attractive.
I think he is attractive in general but I feel like most of the time I don’t actually see him.
I go through the motions of life, busy with four kids, a business, a dog, a few gerbils, a guinea pig, writing children books, a blog/radio show, family and friends. Most days I am blinded by getting to the next activity or “to do” thing on my list.
Then there are times like last tonight where a small glance turns into a full on, full of love moment.
We got a lot of snow these past few weeks (life in New England). My husband has been out snow blowing and shoveling our businesses most of the time (small business owners). The kids and I have barely seen him. He came home last night and taught my oldest son how to play a Beatles song on the guitar. My heart melts when I get to enjoy moments like that.
I love that my kids love the same qualities about my husband that made me fall head over heels in love with him so long ago.
He still gives me butterflies when I see him.
It was such an unexpected treat to really see the guy I fell in love with 25 years ago.
Happy Valentines Day!
