It's the perfect romantic evening, atop a classic red car overlooking New York's city lights.
Such a panorama, in such a setting, is one reserved for the special person in our life, the person to whom we look and say, “You are the one, you are the only one for me, for all time.”
Hopeless romance? Perhaps, in a movie, it is so, but in movies – at least the chick flicks – the story ends with that statement, and we are left to presume, with the fairy tales, that the couple lived happily ever after.
But in real life, when we come to the realization that the person beside us on the car is, indeed, the only one for us, we move on to the next day, when the date is over, and the memory of our time together is just that – a memory.
But we are in a new day, with new experiences with this person we have realized is the one and only one for us, and we will make new memories to add to our life together. Not all of these memories will be romantic ones, not all of these memories will be happy ones, not all of these memories will be enchanting ones.
Many of these memories, actually, will be a compendium of day by day living, the simple tasks that we perform every day just to function: cooking dinner, eating at the table, chatting about our day, making plans for the next one. These memories, while they do not make good movie fare, are just as necessary, and just as powerful, as the ones we find on the perfect date night.
Because life goes on, day after day in its ebb and flow of activity, it is especially important to stop, look at that person we have spent so many hours and days and minutes with, and say, “You are the one, you are still the one, you remain the one for me, for all time.”
