When I was 17 years old, I was talking with an “ancient” married guy of about 28, who was married and had a small child. I don’t remember how we got on the subject, but he said, “You know what, Greg? I know my wife wouldn’t win any beauty contests, but there are days when I come home from work and I see her, and she’s the most beautiful woman in the world to me.”
Truth be told, when he said his wife wouldn’t win any beauty contests, in my 17 year old mind I remember thinking, “Ah…yeah…you got that right!” But when he finished his statement, even then, I realized that I’d just heard something really incredible, profound, and something I’d never forget. And I haven’t. It’s still the sweetest statement of love I’ve ever heard.
All the best,
