When I first met Brian he would do so many sweet things for me. I loved how giving, genuine and loving he was, but I figured he would change after the “newness” of our relationship was over.
I was reminded of this the other day, when my Mom showed me a note she’d found in one of her drawers… one that Brian had written to her on her birthday in 2009, a few months after we had met:
It made my heart smile.
And two years later, I happily admit that I was wrong in thinking that Brian would become less romantic over time.
He is just as sweet and sentimental as he was when we first started dating.
Somehow, he instinctively knows to follow the advice in the song “How To Handle a Woman” from the musical Camelot:
The way to handle a woman
Is to love her…simply love her…
Merely love her…love her…love her.
And for that, I am so thankful.
