  1. Awesome post! I cannot help but smile. Thank you for making my day. I think that my husband and I should do this together. It may shed some light on the past 26 years of marriage. (Just kidding!)

  2. One thing that makes me happy is this post! I love when people try to spread love and happiness to others, and your post does just that! If we all took the time to do this more often, I think the world might be a much better place.
