Happy Thoughts:


Dear John


Today I thought I'd treat myself to a nice relaxing day. I woke up and spent a couple hours with the hubby before he left for work then I spent the rest of the day lounging down by the pool. I got a nice sunburn for that but oh well it was a good day. Now I am spending the evening watching "Dear John" and crying like a baby again. Nicholas Sparks almost always gets me. This movie especially hits home though because I know exactly what it feels like to meet someone only to have them torn away from you a few days later. It's very scary to not know what will happen after you've fallen in love so quickly. The first few months after he left that first time were the hardest ones of all. I wasn't even sure if it would work, or if we'd ever see each other again. We did obviously, we were just to crazy for each other. Which makes it even better, but this movie always reminds me of that. It brings back a lot of memories as well of us when we first started dating. Even down to simple little things, like there's this mailbox on his mother's street that's painted like a Texas flag, and every time I drive by it it reminds me of the first few days we spent together because we went for a long walk every night and we always passed it. I love being head over heels in love with my husband. I love feeling like nothing has changed since the day we met, we're still as crazy for each other as we were the first time we saw each other. I love that he still gives me butterflies, and tinglies and all, and most of all that just the thought of him makes me smile. So my readers I ask, is there a movie that makes you feel this way? Or one that brings back great memories?
