love is all you need.

I am so in love with my husband that sometimes when I think about it [the love] my eyes well up with tears …the good kind, like when you’re watching a really great and probably sappy romantic comedy (& possibly the “meet-cute”). I feel so lucky. I used to watch those movies wishing I had that and now I have to look it straight in the eye and revel in the contentment of getting everything I wanted and giving up everything I thought I wanted in a past life. I may be overly emotional today but I am brought to tears just trying to come up with words to explain it. It must be documented …right now. right when the feeling is so strong. i can look back at this on a less-than-perfect day and say, It’s gonna be okay – because I have it. I will treasure it forever. Love is all you need.

    Hey, Maeg.

    So here I am, reading this totally awesome post you wrote about your husband.
    I think, “God. Everyone deserves this feeling and love in their lives, but few people KNOW they deserve it, and even more know they do but are too SCARED to truly wait and look and find it.”

    I’m in a relationship now [been with him for over three years now] and I’m not sure if he’s the one.

    In your opinion, do you think I should know? There are TIMES I think I know, and there’s so much about him I love, but there are times when I’m almost positive I couldn’t marry him.

    I’m how you were: watching these sappy things, wishing I had…, want it to be like…

    I want to stare it in the face too. :/

    Thank you for reading.

    If you’re compelled to respond, my e-mail should be accessible.

    This inspires me!

    I don’t mean to sound creepy or anything, but I have backtracked through the history of this blog and I can’t help but notice how you still feel the same way about him. I am engaged to who, I think, is the perfect man! And I hope that we hold onto the love that you and your husband have done so well at maintaining.

    Thank you!
