He made me cry on Christmas Eve

While I adore the written word, my husband is not a big writer. The first little post-it note he ever wrote to me was to remind me of my appointment with the dentist. Very romantic indeed. The next one was a birthday card, almost seven months after. Let’s say we have very … different personalities.

Our wedding was honestly the most beautiful day in my life. I enjoyed every minute of it and I smiled all day. Which means I didn’t cry when he said his vows (that he had written himself and that reflected perfectly his style). I was touched, moved, impressed and I loved him with every inch of me. But I didn’t cry.

On Christmas Eve I had to turn my back to my in-laws when I read the little card he wrote me. As I already told you, I chose to subscribe for a year-long course that hopefully allows me the regroup, to set focus again. He had no clue what he was giving me, so he asked for the link, and wrote me a little card to hand me over as a present. It was unexpected. I had seen him write it a few hours before and I couldn’t have imagined the beautiful message of love and hope and passion and togetherness he was composing.

2015 will be a good year for us…


When was the last time you were really moved by something someone did for you?

  1. I think your husband’s message was beautiful and I’m so glad you had a good Christmas. 2015 will be your year. That’s for certain.

    Christmas Eve was beautiful for me as well. A lot of really nice changes happened, but I think it was one thing in particular that about made me cry. My boyfriend kissed me.

    That sounds boring, doesn’t it? We’ve been dating a couple months, but this was different. This kiss almost made me cry and, when it was done, he just held me and I felt like I’d found the home I’d been searching for.

  2. It doesn’t sound boring at all! Some kisses just tell the world and everything beyond. I’m very happy for you and I hope 2015 may feel like home each and every day.

  3. So happy to hear you’re taking time for yourself, and that he supports you!
