What does love look like?
In the media, we see a lot of different representations of love. But really...they are mostly the same. We usually see a pretty woman, a handsome man, some form of drama, resolution, happily ever after and "THE END".
But what happens when tragedy strikes? Maybe the pretty woman becomes blind or suffers debilitating depression. Maybe the man can't move his body, or speak. What happens then?
I adore this song, because it is the true story of a man, his fiance and a terrible car accident 2 months before their wedding. It shows commitment, and that love is really more than what we say--it is shown in what we do. This song has become an anthem in our family and we all love it; my kids have even learned how to play it on the piano. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do
*Spoiler: Several years after the accident, this couple did break up romantically, but they are still deeply involved in each others' lives and remain best friends. Still, I strongly believe in the principle this song teaches and feel it is worth sharing.

Community Question: What do you like people to do for you to show that they love you?
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
