Good things come in twos


If you’re regularly on the World Wide Internet, which most of us are, then I’m sure that you’ve already seen these two videos.  But if you haven’t, you should: two of the most influential songs from my childhood, brought to life in a new way.  Both made me all teary eyed.

Sometimes I wonder what true, true love looks like.  And I think it looks like this, and this.  It’s not the sexy fantasy that we are conditioned to expect; it is deeper, and quieter, and messier.  And, oddly enough, better.  Not that I would know, or anything, but – you know.  It sounds like.

And speaking of twos, here are two of my favorite “Twos.”

The roomies, Mel and Julie.


The nephews, Tyler and Micah.


Have a fantastic two days of weekend!

    I almost didn’t comment – as you were following suit with just 2 comments in your list of 2.

    But thank you so much for sharing those links. The story of the man & wife after the accident was incredible, has been forwarded to those I love, and the reminder I so desperately needed today of what real love sounds like. You’re right, it’s messy, quiet, and so very deep. But that’s what makes it real.

    Thanks again…just what I needed.

    Agreed – wonderful post and links to very thought provoking and moving items.

    Heck, Annie, good things come in ones, too. You’re the one.

    Love, Dad

    I cried during the story of the couple after the accident; especially when she said “It was all too perfect, wasn’t it.” That scares me so much.

    Oh my gosh, L.O.V.E. the NY Times article! I mean, how great is this?

    “Anyone who is in love is living a charmed life, especially if you’ve been in love for many years, through good times and bad.”

    Once again, you just made my day a happier one :)
