Isn't Love Sweet?

I have been listening again to General Conference on my long drives to Morgan for work. It has been really neat to listen again without any distractions of home life. I have heard many things that I didn't hear originally. I have been very touched and feel so blessed to be a part of this gospel. While listening last week, I was so touched by Elder Richard G. Scott and the way he spoke of his wife. The talk is titled
"The Eternal Blessings of Marriage"
and can be found here:





Here is a little excerpt:
"I remember one day I took some of those little round paper circles that form when you punch holes in paper, and I wrote on them the numbers 1 to 100. I turned each over and wrote her a message, one word on each circle. Then I scooped them up and put them in an envelope. I thought she would get a good laugh.
When she passed away, I found in her private things how much she appreciated the simple messages that we shared with each other. I noted that she had carefully pasted every one of those circles on a piece of paper. She not only kept my notes to her, but she protected them with plastic coverings as if they were a valuable treasure. There is only one that she didn’t put with the others. It is still behind the glass in our kitchen clock. It reads, 'Jeanene, it is time to tell you I love you.' It remains there and reminds me of that exceptional daughter of Father in Heaven."
Love is such a sweet thing.
I feel so lucky to have such an amazing husband
who I love so much
and get to spend eternity with.
