In the beginning, it started out as just an idea. Something so simple that came from something so meaningful. Words. Words that could be read whenever my husband needed them the most. On days that he felt down and out, on days when he needed a pick me up, and on days that he just needed to know exactly how I felt about him. I filled a box with all kinds of love notes, sayings, Bible verses and memories that we had shared. I gave it to him one day, and I watched him light up as he opened box. He loved it and he loved the idea behind it, but the only thing that he didn’t like was having to carry the box around with him wherever he went so that he could have a note with him when he wanted to read one. My husband started stuffing notes in his desk drawers at work, or in his pockets before he left the house so that he could have one available to read when he needed it the most. When his box was empty, he started to reflect on how much the gift meant to him and how he would have loved to have had a digital version of the “love box”. When he started to look for an online version he couldn’t find one, and that was the beginning of an idea that was so simple, yet so needed.
