Once Upon a Time

there was a boy

and a girl

They fell in love.

"to you my dear...

If I could have just one wish,

I would wish to wake up everyday

to the sound of your breath on my neck,

the warmth of your lips on my cheek,

the touch of your fingers on my skin,

and the feel of your heart beating with mine...

Knowing that I could never find that feeling

with anyone other than you." Unknown

They got married and

"when he held out his arms,

the world itself wrapped around me

and held me tight."

(quote from storypeople.com)

and had a family.

"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person." Unknown

"When the last speck of fairy dust is gone, and you are married to exactly the person you married and not any fantasy of your own, you find out whether you have what it takes to make it through a few more decades of togetherness. It takes commitment, it takes forgiveness, it takes resignation and compromise, but with all of this, you still have to feel tenderness. The person you see in those eyes that meet yours across the pillow, or the kitchen table or over the head of the child whose hands you hold...

If that person still touches something wordless in you, you can imagine that there are still good parts left, still surprises in the story." Unknown
