Brené Brown couldn’t believe it when she found a flirty note left on the windshield of her car. After all, she was a married woman and mother-of-two! But a closer look changed her mind about the note entirely!
Brené Brown is an impressive lady. She has her Ph.D. in social work, is the author of three #1 New York Times Bestsellers, a public speaker and a research professor at the University of Houston.
In addition to teaching, writing and researching, she spends her time traveling to lecture about what she’s learned through her studies on topics like vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. Needless to say, she’s extremely busy and is used to being recognized for her brain.
So, she was caught completely off-guard when she came out of the gym to find a flirty note scrawled on a napkin and tucked onto the windshield of her car.
Secret Admirer Behind Flirty Note Revealed
The words on the handwritten love note read,
“You are really cute. I am going 2-stepping tonight, if you would like to join me. Call me.”
It ended with the phone number belonging to her secret admirer.
At first, Brené was completely taken aback. Who could have left such a brazen letter? After all, she was a happily married woman and mother-of-two.
But then, Brené looked closer. That’s when she decided she’d give the number a call and accept the offer. She realized both the handwriting and the phone number belonged to her husband of nearly 22 years — Steve!
The simple act completely brightened Brené’s day — so much so that she shared it on her Facebook page. There, commenters shared some of their own special moments with their partners.
Keeping Romance Alive
Brené’s story is a beautiful reminder of the power held in “the little things.” And surely that’s part of the reason she decided to share it.
The stories posted by others on Brené’s page only confirmed this. Folks reminisced about the moments that created the most joy in their relationships. And they all shared something in common.
All of these treasured moments were small, spontaneous acts intended to simply show love. Nothing elaborate – just a short note, a smile or kind word at the right moment, a small gift like a single flower or favorite treat.
It’s really just about finding a personal way to say, ” Hey — I see you, and I love you!”
And remember — this idea isn’t just for the married folks. Taking a minute out of the day to acknowledge and appreciate someone who is important to us is good for any relationship.
So, what spontaneous act of love will you do for someone today?
“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
