I just got back from an 8 mile bike ride–yes, yay me! I listened to my ipod while biking and on came the song “Here In Your Arms” by Hellogoodbye. This song always makes me think of my Todd. I love being in his arms. I love how he feels and smells. I love his kindness and gentleness, and his laid back-ness. I love that he takes the time to listen to me and really hear me. I often think when looking at him from across the room, “He is a hottie, how did I get so lucky?”
For those of you who are about to gag at this public blurting of affection, I would not recommend that you click on the below video. But– I do have a question..why do some people accept this type of PDA from newlyweds and those who just fell in love, but when it is a couple who have been in a long term, committed marriage, it seems to bring about discomfort in some people? Are they just prudes? Are they jealous? Do they just not believe that it is possible after 10 years to actually mean and feel fun, flirty and genuine words of affection? What is it that brings about that gag reflex? Just curious.
Well, I think that not only is it possible, it is how God intended it to be. Has anyone read Songs of Solomon lately? Now that is some pretty steamy public blurts of affection!
