Today my family went to see the 4th Shrek movie. It was very cute and entertaining like all the others. But this one seemed to hit a little closer to home for me and my hubby. Sorry if this spoils the movie for anyone… The plot of the story is Shrek is frustrated by his life, he doesn't know who he is anymore (Amen Shrek!). So, he has a bad day and has a fight with his wife. He runs in to Rumpelstiltskin and drinks too much, ends up signing a contract to change one day of his life. Basically, it ends up being like "It’s a wonderful life," a you don't know what you got 'til it's gone theme. While Shrek is in his one day as an ogre romp he has to make Fiona fall in love with him again.
There is a line in the movie (yes, I realize I am quoting a cartoon ;) ) where Shrek says, the best part about today was I got to fall in love with you all over again. I have to admit I teared up at this. Later when we were leaving the theater my hubby asks if I cried. I said no, but I did tear up. He admitted he teared up too which is not something common for my man.
I guess my point is that we here in reality don't have the ability to relive our lives. We are in the present, no time travel option available. We need to look at every day and search to find the little things that make us fall in love again. With our friends, family and spouses. There are little things that annoy me to know end about my husband. I can probably make a whole list, but there are little things that I adore too.
I want to fall in love with him every day.
