Head Over Heels in Love!
It just struck me today…the well-known phrase, “head over heels,” is upside down in what it intends conveys. All day, every day, I am “head over heels.” Like most of my friends, I walk with my head over my heels. There is nothing special about that particular orientation toward the world.
On the other hand, a few particular situations in life make me feel “heels over head.” For example, and most obvious, my wife makes me feel “heels over head.” For so very many reasons, she creates a unique alignment of my thoughts and feelings. Today what comes to my mind is her perfect loyalty. I trust her. I trust her completely – without any reservation whatsoever. She is faithful to me in her words, in her actions and in her heart.
So I wish to declare, with all the metaphorical power embedded in the phrase, I am heels over head in love with my wife!
