"...of course you are"
gushed my wife as we sat down on the front porch on an ultra pleasant sunday afternoon. but as we perused the pages of this book together, i realized that my perception of romance, and hers, were vastly different.
ok, "vastly different" may be a bit of an exaggeration. but when sharon assured me that a slinky, alluring bit of lingerie that i imagined would look amazing on her was DEFINITELY NOT a romantic gesture...at least for her. i realized that our perspective's were not the same.
can anyone relate?
have you ever been sure....i mean...REALLY SURE that you were hitting a home run with your honey...only to discover how underwhelmed they were with your idea or gift...or at least how far off the mark you were?
have you ever desperately held on to the expression on your face as you opened a present before your sweet heart could see your un-enthused reaction?
so...do we stop trying? of course not! we continue to be students...the best kind of students. observing, paying attention, listening, trying, perfecting. sometimes it's more about the journey then the destination. keep it up!
less of me...
