One day when Bob and I were first dating he saw me at the end of a gross day. I felt terrible. I wanted to go home and take a shower and wash the day away. But first I saw him. I really didn’t even want to see him because I thought he’d think less of me. But instead he said, “You look pretty.”
Thinking of that makes me smile to this day. And it makes me even more confident that he still loves me when I’m not looking my best. He even took care of me when I had the stomach flu. Now that’s love.
