It’s a life-story writer’s dream to ask a simple question and receive a river of heart-felt emotion. That’s typically what happens when I ask my clients to reflect on their husband, wife, partner, or significant other.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I’m inspired to share some of my clients’ feelings, past and present . . .
“The singular best decision I have made in my life was my choice of spouse. Jack is unquestionably the best partner I could ever ask for. He is and always has been committed to my success, our children’s success, and the strength of our family.”
“She was the best thing that ever happened to me!”
“Rob’s intelligence was undeniable, but above that, he was a gentleman. We were the perfect complement to each other. He was introverted, I was more extroverted. He loved to read, I loved to talk . . . When I turned 17, call it intuition or call it determination, I decided I was going to marry him (probably well before that thought even crossed his mind!)
“I couldn't ask for a better life partner.”
“Barbara’s parents truly wanted her to find someone special. So I always make it a point whenever I go to the cemetery to stop and tell them how lucky I am to have met and married their daughter.”
“Maybe it was his easy-going personality, or perhaps it was his bright smile and deep laugh, but either way I can tell you that when I met my husband at a party in D.C. back in 2002, he left an indelible impression on me from that moment on.... We dated from 2003 to 2005 and even now, whenever I hear Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” it transports me back to those wonderful years. ‘... It’s the beat that my heart skips when I’m with you... ’ I used to blast that song when we were together, singing at the top of my lungs like Beyoncé had written her songs with us in mind.”
Put your love story into words this Valentine’s Day.
It’s the most significant gift you could give to each other. It comes straight from the heart and conveys the message in the most loving way that “our story matters.”
