A friend had this video posted on Facebook last week, and I thought it was just so beautiful that I had to share it here.
I love this phrase in the song,
“People fall in love in mysterious ways,”
or as Mr. Darcy says it in Pride and Prejudice,
“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”
which also made me think of Anne in Listen to Your Heart
“I know I have loved you all my life, but it was not until…well…I am not sure where it changed from the love one has for a cousin to the love one has for a man.”
The truth of the phrase is not confined to lyrics and stories. If I think of my husband and ask myself the following questions
- Why do I love you?
- How do I love you?
- When did I begin loving you?
There would be no simple answer because
“People fall in love in mysterious ways.”
A truth which makes writing about characters falling in love and fighting for that love so much fun!
