We talk on the phone and ironically it had been on both of our hearts that the not saying "i love you" thing is quite stupid. haha It seemed like a silly rule as opposed to something God wants. We both felt like it was right and for the right reasons...so we agreed that we would say it from now on. I told him not to say it over the phone because a girl like me has to have any special moment to be perfect. haha So the next day ( our one month ) he came with flowers and a card ( while I made him dinner...my first meal ever ) and I wanted to open the card right away but he said to wait until later. So later that night after dinner he takes me to corona del mar to walk on the beach. ( which is one of our favorite things to do )
Anyhow, we walk in the sand and there are so many stars that I can't look down and I feel like I'm walking on air. We stroll along the beach and take our shoes off and leave them on a life guard tower and continue walking. The sun is going down and the waves are so calm, lights on the shore flicker and wave and all I can think about is this amazing man next to me. We walk about halfway and he says that I should open the card now. I take it out.....anticipating what will happen next. He asks to read it.....and he does.
I feel most loved by words and more words. Words mean the world to me and I hold them closer to my heart than an old photograph. I take a picture in my head of me looking up at him pouring his heart out with the ocean behind him. He finishes reading and ends with " I love you Danica". My heart gets warm and soars through my body leaving tingles of delight all the way to my toes. We hold each other on the beach and praise God for this beautiful moment.
"The only reason my heart beats is cos you showed it how."
