“Long ago, men went to sea, and women waited for them, standing on the edge of the water, scanning the horizon for the tiny ship. Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow and transparent as glass. Through each moment I can see infinite moments lined up, waiting. Why has he gone where I cannot follow?” -Clare
I watched the Time Traveler's Wife tonight. It always gets me and I end up in tears! It is a wonderful movie but I suggest if you have the time, read the book as well. Such a heart breaking romantic story. Two people deeply in love subjected to life's unfairness.
I think it is truly amazing how love gives us strength to conquer enormous obstacles. The true deep love I have for my husband makes waiting for him worth every second he's gone. While I strongly believe there is a lot more required for a strong happy marriage, love is what binds everything together. It's what sparks patience, kindness, perseverance, honesty, and unselfishness.
