I Love You to the Moon and Back

“This Day in History” in 1969, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. 

See here:  http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/armstrong-walks-on-moon?et_cid=77874313&et_rid=724205536&linkid=http%3a%2f%2fwww.history.com%2fthis-day-in-history%2farmstrong-walks-on-moon

Today, we often hear the expression, “I love you to the moon and back.” 

I imagine you’ve seen it or heard it said recently.  Sometimes the expression is abbreviated: “To the moon and back.”  Wonder why?

Take time today to reflect on the beauty of our heavenly skies, their facts and mysteries.  I hope this post inspires you to read or write something based on this topic.  Brainstorm and choose fiction, nonfiction, poetry, related careers, space exploration, or other choices.

What do you “love to the moon and back?”

I hope you’ll leave a comment.  Thanks for stopping in.  Come again soon and bring a friend.  Please remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them. Thank you!

  1. I’ve heard the abbreviation but never the whole quote. Interesting. I think I’d say my grands and my writing but it should be my Lord! Thanks for making me think!

    • Carol,
      I’m glad this made you think and reflect on those you love and on how precious your writing is to you. Have a great day enjoying both! Thanks for your faithful following here! You’re special in my world!

    Dear Linda,
    Thanks for sharing this phrase with us. I love my family and friends to the moon and back. I love God even more than that! But don’t know how to describe it in the same kind of describing words.

    Celebrate you today!
    Never Give Up
    I love you to the moon and back,

  4. Thanks so much, Roxie.

  5. I remember that day in 1969. I took a TV to work and we all watched the historical event. I remember Jackie Gleason always wanting to send his wife Alice to the moon, lol. I would have to say, “I love my children to the moon and back and then to my last breath and beyond”. Have a great day Linda!

    • Susan,
      Thanks for reminding us of how many spent part of that historic day!

      I had forgotten that Jackie Gleason sometimes said he wanted to send Alice to the moon on the Honeymooners TV program.

      Thanks for sharing about those you love so much. Best wishes to you and all your family. I appreciate you commenting here.

  6. I will never forget that day. The most riveting TV I’ve ever watched, by a long shot. Thanks Linda for remembering for us.
