Love is in the air …

Welcome to another week of random thoughts and ramblings …. What do we have for you this week?

What is the most romantic thing you have ever seen done between two people in real life?

I think for me it was one of the first impressions I got of my father-in-law. When I first arrived in Australia he was in his early seventies. My husband asked him to come and stay with us for a couple of days to repair or re-do the wooden floor. The two men worked hard for foholding handsur or five days until they got it all finished on Friday afternoon. We asked my father-in-law to stay the night and have a good sleep before heading home, a two-hour-drive, but he was determined to get back to his wife. In his seventies, and all he wanted after five days was to get home, he’d missed his wife so much. For me, that was something I’ll never forget. I don’t think he’s a “romantic”, more a true blue Aussie bloke, but my mother-in-law is very blessed to have him in her life!

Any romantic stories you have to share?

    I have no idea what I’m going to write for Thur., but I can tell you the first image that came to mind with your question:
    When my daughter was still engaged, somebody snapped a photo of her and her fiance.
    They’re standing very close and hugging, of course … and my daughter’s hand is flat against Jack’s chest. Right about where his heart would be. I’ve since seen a very similar pose in many young loving couples. There’s a sense of intimacy, of course, but it also seems to ‘settle’ the issue: “He’s mine”.
    Whenever I see that photo, I have to smile because it seems so romantic to me.
