One of my favorite movies is “The Princess Bride.” My husband Tim and my father took me to see it for my 22nd birthday. Sorry, but you’ll have to guess what year that was.
Anyway, do you remember the first scene where the grandfather (Peter Falk) wants to read the book, “The Princess Bride,” to his little grandson (Fred Savage?) The grandson asks if it was a “kissing book” because he didn’t like “kissing books.” That is Tim!!! I could see the same thing going through his eyes every time I bugged (not nagged) him to take me to see the movie. “But I don’t like kissing movies!!!!”
Needless to say, Tim loved the movie. It wasn’t what he thought it would be. Why did he go? Because he loves me. To be honest, I don’t know why he loves me like he does.
May 8th will be the 32nd anniversary of our first date. So, I’m going to wish Tim a happy first date anniversary now since our daughter Sara will be graduating from college on May 10th. By the way, kissing movies are good if you get kisses too.
Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned. Song of Solomon 8:7 (NIV)
