It's Valentine's Day and Love is in the Air!
Whether it's love of a sweetheart, a child, friend or family member, today is the day that we celebrate LOVE.
So I got to thinking about the one romantic movie that does it for me every time. The one movie, I never tire of watching. The one movie that fills my emotional well in one way and drains me, in another. For me, this movie is one of best stories of true love, that I've ever seen.
I remember going to the movie theatre, not knowing what to expect exactly, and then being completely blown away. I hadn't read the book, so the story and the way it was told, really reached deep inside me and pulled at my heartstrings. Because of this movie, and my public display of crying, (I wasn't warned to bring tissues) I have now shied away from all movies that I KNOW will bring on the waterworks. Mostly, those are animal movies, but also stories of heartbreaking love.
But The Notebook was uplifting in it's love story. No matter how many times I see this movie, I still cry during the sweet and poignant moments. It's a movie I have to watch over and over again.
It reminds me of the tremendous power of love.
And what better day than today, to speak about true, everlasting love?
Happy Valentine's Day to you.
What's your all-time favorite love story?
