After decades of marriage, she wants others, especially young people, to know what it truly means to love someone every single day.
Listen up young ones: This is what your knight in shining armor looks like when you are in your 40s.” Amy Betters-Midtvedt writes, and her explanation went viral practically overnight.
She was shopping for groceries when she realized that she had left the house without her wallet. Standing next to a cart overflowing with the family’s food for the next week, she called her husband who left work to save the day. His only “admonishment?”
You’re not supposed to be grocery shopping; I said I’d go this week.’
Love also looks like me coming downstairs to a full pot of coffee every morning because coffee is love.
Love looks like all the lunches being made already so I can enjoy that aforementioned cup of coffee.
Love looks like someone washing the dishes while his wife catches up on ‘This is Us’, while plopped on the couch not helping at all.
Love looks like a super patient dad doing the 5 year old’s homework with him every morning so I can get to work on time.”
And she wants everyone to know that his behavior wasn’t a surprise as they grew older – he’d always been that way.
In college, this love looked like boyfriend ‘Todd’ running to the store for a danish I was craving, or watching me and my friends on the dance floor long after he wanted to leave the bar, or him being known across campus by the flower backpack he was carrying—which of course, was mine.
Do not be fooled by big, showy promposals and giant cards with candy bars glued to them with some cute saying or by your name spelled in pepperoni by a boy who’s asking you to homecoming.”
Her honest words about her husband, her marriage, and her own life were inspiring, and couples are sharing their best moments because of it.
