Last night Ari had a pretty bad night´s sleep.... it was one of those dreaded nights that thankfully don't happen very often, but when they do and once I surrender, I almost enjoy them and in that quiet time I spend the time writing posts in my mind. Last night's post was about love... Of course! I have always considered myself lucky since I think with my hubby I had a romantic movie romance, It included about all the love scenes possible in a movie, maybe even the ones at the airport where the guy runs to stop the plane from taking off... Yeah! I lived that! And yes, that feeling is still strong and has helped us walk in the same direction in all our years of marriage. But even as that is true, real life and real love is not running through an airport everyday to show your love.
Real life is messier than that, time is messier and family is way more messier and complicated than that.... Sometimes we get caught up living love than showing it.... And we might forget that living it is more important. Now a days, friday night romance includes a disney movie with our loves all in the bed, love means happy proud eyes showing us their new ability, it means a tired face after a hard day of work for us, it means an afternoon of planning our next family trip, or a sunday barbecue, it means closing our eyes at night and having three little faces stuck in your mind and heart, is always being ready last because you are taking care of eveyone else, it means never being able to eat a complete meal without a baby on your lap, it means not really seeing grumpiness in the morning or keeping track of what you did and the other didn't. It is so much more real than a black and white scene from a movie.... Love is real, love is made up of the real stories of our lives, some are happy stories, some are sad, some are loud, some are soft,,,.. But all of them make us strong and keep us together. And even though the movie scenes are the first images that come to our minds when we think about love, make sure that they are not the only scenes that are in your mind!
As for my hubby.... I would have to thank him for always reminding me that romantic, is also important to keeping it real and beautiful and bubbly!
