This morning I woke up and looked over at my sweet sleepy husband. He looked like an angel – and I was just watching him – wondering when he would wake up – when he suddenly and slowly opened up his eyes. They were so cute and puffy from lack of sleep after a very late (or early) work night. As he looked at me trying to focus – I thought they looked very much like pictures I had seen of the sultry and sexy Bette Davis – (just the eyes) – and before I could retract it, I said “You’ve got Bette Davis Eyes”
I’m sure he does not appreciate my humor at that time in the morning – but I really did mean it as a complement 🙂 He’s a pretty good sport – most of the time and usually laughs right out loud at my poking fun at him – and it is easy and comfortable being with him – I love to hear him laugh like that. And his eyes crinkle with humor and fun – much mischief and ‘little boy’ innocence – it is really nice.
Eyes are the ‘window to the soul‘ and many things can be revealed about a person when you look into them. Fear, confidence, pain, hurt, frustration, peace, fun, mischief – yes it all revealed in a moment – through the eyes.
I LOVE brown eyes. they are deep and expressive, mysterious and soft.
I also LOVE green eyes. Whimsical and sparkling with fun. Captivating and full of mischief.
But my favorite are Blue eyes. My husband has blue eyes. They are sweet and kind. They hold me with just a glance and touch something deep within me.
My eyes are also blue – and they are my husband’s favorite thing about me. He can read them very well – and understands what lies beneath the surface after all these years. They are my ‘window’ to what is inside of me. Sometimes shining with fun – sometimes brimming with tears and emotion – they are all a part of me – and he loves to drown in them. I am very lucky.
