The other day I was sitting around minding my own business when a very sweet elderly lady grabbed a hold of my elbow in that way that only elderly ladies can.
She looked me in the eyes, smiled and said, "it's so nice to see how much you and your husband love each other."
Cue my light-up-from-the-tips-of-my-toes-to-the-top-of-my-head smile.
When I make remarks about the ear doctor and I people often shake their heads, roll their eyes and say, "you're newlyweds, give it a year or so and it'll wear off."
I don't want this to wear off. We've been married for almost 8 months and he's become an even greater friend than I ever expected. Why do people feel the need to rain on our parade? Why the negativity? Why can't more people be supportive, loving, and sweet like the nice elderly lady whose small, passing comment will be locked in my memory forever?
