LOVE NOTES: INTRODUCTION
On my refrigerator, there's a little plastic novelty magnet in the shape of a mailbox, complete with a little red flag that can be placed in the up or down position. When I first got married, I used to write little love notes to my wife, place them inside, put the flag up & wait for my wife to discover them. She really liked that.
Well, it didn't take long for my creative well to run dry, so I started searching the internet for sweet sayings that actually reflected my feelings. I'd print them out, cut them into little strips, and tuck them into the mailbox. Beloved Wife liked that, too.
After a couple years, I discovered that there are really only a few hundred different ways that I could say "I love you", and I got tired of searching one lame list after another looking for something new. Despite the fact that the internet is nearly infinite, the creativity of its authors is not, and lists of favorite quotes tended to be repetiitve.
My beloved wife, being a bit of a pack rat, kept nearly all those little slips of paper. So, in an effort to remind her that I DO love her, even though I spend so much time on "that damn computer", I'm going to start posting them. After all, I DO still feel "that way" about her, so I might as well tell the world.
If sappy stuff isn't your cup o' tea, you can skip these posts. On the other hand, you may find something that strikes a chord in your own heart. If so, feel free to use them (you don't have to give me credit, since they're not my original work, anyway) or you can e-mail your own beloved with a link and say, "I read this and thought of you".
They'll probably like that.
