Some romantic dramas portray acts of love as incredible sacrifices for the significant other, and it makes for really great cinematics …. but such scenarios may not be all that realistic. So, when this lady ran into a slight predicament in ALDI one day, it was her “knight in shining armor” who came to her aid (after a phone call). And this is what she’d like to share with those looking for that special someone.
Amy Betters-Midtvedt, a writer for Hiding in the Closet with Coffee, recently went shopping at ALDI but awkwardly found herself at the checkout without her purse. She quickly called her husband, Todd, for help, and he dropped everything at work to race over.
In a Facebook post on Love What Matters, Amy uploaded a photo of her husband arriving at the supermarket and recalled the details of what happened from there.
She wrote: “Not sure you can tell, but he’s smiling at me. Yup…he had to leave work and he is smiling. His only words of admonishment were, ‘You’re not supposed to be grocery shopping; I said I’d go this week.”
“This is what your knight in shining armor looks like when you are in your 40s,” she said.
She also described what love is like when people get old and how awesome it is.
She wrote, “Love also looks like me coming downstairs to a full pot of coffee every morning because coffee is love.
“Love looks like all the lunches being made already so I can enjoy that aforementioned cup of coffee.”
She also provided her two cents to young ladies on what to look out for when searching for their ideal other half.
“Do not be fooled by big, showy promposals and giant cards with candy bars glued to them with some cute saying or by your name spelled in pepperoni by a boy who’s asking you to homecoming.
“That isn’t the stuff that lasts and let’s be honest…moms are totally helping them with those things.
“Watch how he treats you when Instagram isn’t looking.
“That is where the signs are.
“Choose the man who will carry your too heavy flowered backpack in public because he will also be the man who bails you out at ALDI’s when you’re 40-? with a smile and a hug.”
This simple but lovely account has garnered much attention online, with people sharing their thoughts on love.
Indeed, these are all some nice indicators of what’s “love.” So, what do you think? Would you like to share any nice experiences you’ve had, even if they’re small, that demonstrate love? We’d love to hear from you! Do share in the comments section.
