Certified Fresh.

June 13, 2019


to my favorite movie date in the world! ❤️ 
He’s a lover of movies. Always has been. For as long as I can remember, he’s been able to recognize and appreciate a good story when he hears/sees it. I love that about him.

How blessed I am that God chose to intertwine his story with mine. Like all great films, his life story has had elements of action, adventure, mystery, heartache, triumph, drama, laughter, and love. And I’ve been there to experience it all. I’ll say it again. How blessed I am.

Lately, he’s been obsessed with writing down all of the films that he’s seen, and rating them. He likes to hop on the Rotten Tomatoes website to see how they’ve chosen to rate films as well. So, when I gave him his first birthday hug this morning, I told him that if I could rate his life story, I would definitely give him a “Certified Fresh” rating, by Rotten Tomatoes standards. He just looked up at me and smiled the biggest smile.

I know he’s the one who should be receiving all the gifts today, since it’s his special day. But, that smile of his was a gift to me. I sure hope he feels loved, understood, and appreciated today (and in the coming year) more than he ever has before.
