What's Your Love Fortune?

Greg has been stuck traveling to Dallas every week now for more than a month.

Serious. Bummer.

We love being together and a good snuggle on the couch can erase a whole day of stressful experiences.

But so can sweet emails like this one I got from him today:

Good Afternoon Sweet Pea -

I just thought I'd share a couple of fortunes I got from Pei Wei this afternoon:

1. Your love of life can carry you through any circumstance.
2. Love is a present that can be given every single day you live.

I'm giving you my love as a present today and every day.

I love you!


You know what I love most about this email?

It's clear that whatever is happening to him all the way over in Dallas, I'm still right there next to him in his head.

Otherwise, he wouldn't immediately think to translate his fortunes into what it reminds him about our love.

It's like he leaned over the table, read them to me, and told me how much he loves me.

I feel like I'm right there with him, sipping too-sweet Chinese tea. It's so comforting to know he's keeping me close.

It's little things like that, that keep you connected, no matter the distance.

When you really love someone, it comes naturally to keep them close to your heart and mind, whether you are in the same town, or a different country.
