Romantic Response

Mrs. G recently wrote about Romance and asked her readers to tell her what was the most romantic thing anyone ever said to them.

My Hubby has said a lot of romantic things to me. Like Mr. G is credited with in Mrs. G's post, he often says things like "You look hot" at the most unbelievable times - when I haven't showered in 48 hours, when I'm in sweat pants and a torn shirt, when my hair is sticking out in different directions - and not in a cute funky a bad funky way.

But I distinctly remember one particular moment when I was blown away by what he said...I wonder if he remembers the moment as well as I do.

It was January 16, 1991. Seriously. I remember the date. You see it was the day before George H. Bush's Gulf War began. We were at a restaurant not far from our apartment in Wappingers Falls NY. We were with friends. I don't have any idea what prompted it, but at one moment I noticed Hubby looking at me and then he spoke.

"You take my breath away."

My friend Christina let out an audible sigh and "awwwww". I honestly think she seriously considered punching her boyfriend and asking him why he never said things like that to her.

I'm pretty sure I blushed. I'm pretty sure I was speechless. I'm definitely sure that for one brief moment, I believed that I could take someone's breath away. But more importantly, from that moment forward,I've known without a doubt that I met and married the perfect man for me. Despite all my craziness, my bitchiness, my bad funky hair and ugly sweat pants, he meant every word. For him, I was the one that could took his breath away.

So, Mrs. G., that is the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me. Not bad, eh?

Much better than when the Hoos said to me "You detract from the beauty of this place." He claims he meant to say that the Beauty of the place paled in comparison to me...but I am not so sure.

Not bad at all! What a sweet guy. Don't you just love husbands?

How fortunate you are to have these memories.
So I am perplexed why they are in your category of blogging about Anxious moments.
I still say you have so many wonderful things going on in your life, why are you titling your blog anxious??
Oh well, I am just being a mom
I want to thank Mrs. G for letting you reflect and remember.

Love those moments. You have a good Hubby.

My favorite memory of beautiful words My Hubby spoke were one night long ago when he reached for me, pulled me close, and said, "I just want to breathe your air."

Made me seven kinds of squishy, that one...

I'm so glad it was you who took his breath away.

It's amazing what 5 little words can do.

P.S. Sorry for the bombarding of comments... haven't checked blogs in a few weeks.
