"The Wedding"

I'm an audio book person. Because I sit and write lots and lots of envelopes, seating cards, etc. it occurred to me a long time ago that I needed something to occupy my mind while doing the work that I do. I can't recall when I started listening to audio books but my guess is that I've listened to thousands of books and some more than once. I really enjoy a good mystery, love story, science fiction and some self help authors.
Tonight I finished listening to Nicholas Sparks "The Wedding". It was so romantic, sweet and touching that I sobbed during the ending from joy at the possibility that there could be such love and thoughtfulness existing among us, because if someone could write about it then it has to have happened for someone.
I'm a real romantic and sometimes overly idealistic. Most of the time I live in the real world but my dreams are what saves me. I would hope, with a great deal of my heart, that such romance and love exists and sometimes I even get to experience a taste of it. However, after listening to this book I will make more of an effort to step up the romance in my relationship. I definitely believe that people can change if once aware of the joy it can bring to the person they
love. It can be exciting not only for the receiver but for the giver as well. I'm looking forward to the experience.
