In 1971, a year after we were married, my DH was sent to National Guard training camp many states away. I only saw him once in four months. However, we kept the mailman busy with LOVE LETTERS back and forth several times a week. I still have all the ones we each wrote to the other. Just can’t bare to part with them. Every few years I take them out and read them and fall in love with him all over again.
I tend to be a pack rat with anything that is sentimental. In this other little wooden box that my father brought back to me from one of his trips when I was a little girl, I still keep the box that held my engagement ring and the orchid that was part of my bouquet in our wedding.
My DH is also wonderful with cards. He has this uncanny talent of choosing the most perfect card for my birthday, our anniversary, or Valentines Day. It’s as if the card was written just for us.
People don’t write letters of any kind much anymore due to email and cell phones, but to me there is something so special about a handwritten letter. And a LOVE LETTER written in the hand of one you love is absolutely the best.
DH asked me this week what I wanted for VALENTINES DAY. Although I always love his beautiful cards, a LOVE LETTER would be even better.
Instead of giving your Sweetie a card or gift this year, why not write a LOVE LETTER instead? We can never hear I LOVE YOU too much.
