Falling in Love...All over Again

"Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are movies about relationships. People talking; discussing dreams and failures, wants and desires; and discovering who the other person really is. I was reminded of these two films when my husband returned home after being away for two weeks. It was wonderful to greet him at the airport with hugs and kisses and even more magical when returning home, opening a bottle of wine, and staying up until 2 AM listening to his stories of adventure and sharing his journey with me.
Sometimes "life gets in the way" and you miss the real conversations that make you realize why you are in a relationship with this person that just returned to your life. Take a moment with your loved one to sit, talk, and listen.
