A Quote On Love

"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket–safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
~ C. S. Lewis

The other day I ate a Dove chocolate. Inside the wrapper was written, "Dare to love completely." Hmmm... why not? I dare you...

Why Do You Love Me?

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is one of my favorite movies to watch. It reminds me of my family. It's funny and I think that in some way, everyone can relate to it.

I've watched that movie so many times, that I can quote some of the lines. But there are two quotes from this movie that really move me...

"Why do you want to leave me?"
This line is said by the dad to his daughter. I love my dad very much. It's because of his example that I married my Knight. To this day, you'll hear this quote spoken in our Castello, we say it teasingly. But with lots of love.

"Why do you love me? Because I became alive when I met you."
The question was asked by the lead actress. The answer she received just melted my heart. It made me think, "Wow, I know that I had a life, a happy life before my Knight came along. But I never dreamed it could get better." It has... and I soooo look forward to what's ahead. My cup runneth over...

Quote About Courtship And Marriage

I came across a quote about marriage that really spoke to me. I hope you'll be blessed by it...

"If couples would put half the effort into marriage that they put into
courtship, they would be surprised how things would brighten up."
-Billy Graham
