After getting responses from around the world, Tracy shared some of them and in a recent post said she was “shocked and humiliated.”

“The only thought that comes to mind when I make him lunch and ‘take a bite of his sandwich’ is how much I love him. About as much thought as he puts into a phone call in the middle of the day when he tells me “you just need to hear my voice” or a little note that we leave for each other here and there from time to time, “he wrote in a post. of follow up.

“We probably tell each other a dozen times a day that we love each other. We never wanted the other to “assume” that we love them. We don’t go out of our way, it’s as natural for us as brushing our teeth, ”she wrote.
