Since I write inspirational romance, I suppose it's a given that I'm a romantic at heart. Books. Movies. Real life. I love it all. (Contented sigh.) I am a firm believer that you shouldn't save your romantic gestures for Valentine's Day or just your anniversary. We should show our love every day of the year. Sometimes it's in the simple day-to-day things that we do for our beloved that speaks volumes. You don't have to purchase an expensive gift. True romance is from the heart. It really IS the thought that counts -- special memories shared with the one we love.
When my husband and I were dating, he pulled over and stopped the truck to view a beautiful sunset. I thought it was so sweet. He happened to have his camera with him, so he took several pictures. Too bad there wasn't any film in the camera. Go ahead and laugh -- it was kind of funny. Even though we don't have the actual pictures of that sunset to remember that special moment, we have them in our hearts. We'll never forget it. I often think of that special memory whenever I see a particularly beautiful sunset.
I remember the story of how my mom took a bite out of my dad's sandwich once when she packed his lunch. When he opened up his lunch in front of all the guys, he said, "Oh look! My wife sent me a kiss." I did that to my hubby once too. It gave him a laugh and he knew I was sending him an "I love you" in the middle of his day.
So, let's talk romance! Keep it clean :), this is a G-rated blog. (G is for God-honoring.) Share a favorite movie, book, or a special memory.
