This Valentine’s Day, Good Deed Dating have come up with a lovely plan to put smiles on strangers’ faces.
They’ll be hiding 1000 love notes around the city; on tubes, bus stops, coffee shops and on the street. If you’re lucky enough to stumble across one of Good Deed Dating‘s secret love letters, make sure you take a picture and share it online.
And of course, the same is true of you and your relationships with your family and friends. Because the way you pursue your relationship with my daughter, whatever the outcome, doesn’t happen in a vacuum. If she marries in two years or five years or ten years, we want her to be with a guy who will love her and nurture her and care for her and who will learn to delight in her in the uniqueness of the singular beauty of who she is.
It effects and impacts the lives and emotions of her family and friends, for better or for worse. The bottom line is, if she were to end up emotionally tied to (or hurt by) a guy who ended up being a jerk to her, it wouldn’t just break her heart and make life miserable for her, it would break the hearts of her sisters and her parents and her grandparents and her friends as well.
I say it because if you build your relationship on the knowledge that everyone who loves you, and everyone who loves her, are invested in the choices you make, it gives you a good foundation for building well, for building something that can last, and for building something that doesn’t only serve two people, but that can be a blessing to generations before and after. That even in the early stages of getting to know one another, you are building something. Build such that even if all you end up creating together is a small garden where friendship can grow, that it will be a beautiful little place that makes others smile when they pass by. So if there ever comes a day when you decide that you love my daughter and you can’t live without her and you want to ask my blessing to marry her, if that day ever arrives, the one thing I expect is that before you would ever dare come to me and ask, that you would have at that point already shown me, over time, by your actions towards my daughter, that while I was the man who loved her first, you have become the one who has learned to love her best. Written for his first daughter when she was two years old—and now being illustrated by Jamin Still—this lyrical, luminous book is designed to capture the aching wonder of that brief season when a parent and child first explore their world together.
It’s all about finding love while also making a difference, and who can argue with that?
