The NoteBook (read entirely or you’ll miss my message)

This is the most touching movie in my opinion of all time!

I can’t speak enough of how much LOVE and COMPASSION it has through the entire movie.

If you have never seen it I highly recommend that you do so.

I have watched Titanic, Twilight to mention a few but the movie changed the way I feel about the concept of LOVE, I thought I knew what the word love meant but I had no idea.

This is a picture of my Grandfather and I have to say he was one of the strongest men I’ve ever known and yeah maybe a little rough around the edges at times but I never knew just how big his heart really was or how strongly he loved.

After my grandfather passed we were going through his belongings and found an old lunch box in the rafters of the garage.

When we opened it we found something we didn’t expect.

There was a letter inside as we unfolded it we didn’t realize we were unfolding this mans heart and letting his love for his wife slowly unfold before our eyes.

I won’t tell all it said this was for her and our family but I will say that it mentioned how he loved her and knew she loved him for everyday she got up so early to make sure he had a good meal before work and packed his lunch with so much love, everything packed so neatly and it was prepared the night before with him in mind.

The past can teach us so much but it can’t teach us how to love this strongly, I think it has to be a part of us and it has to be mutual between us and who we are with. If these feelings and this kind of love isn’t what we feel naturally every day then I have to feel maybe we should keep looking.

  1. Love that movie, and that would be one of my favourite scenes – I can relate to her nervousness, but I love the look on his face! Your grandfathers letter sounds lovely – yes, often it’s the small, everyday things that we do in life that show the most love. Love doesn’t need big gestures. 😃
