But to my dismay, my husband gave me the best valentines present.
He wrote me a love letter.
Not typed, not short and cheesy, but a real honest to goodness hand-written love letter!
He and I have been through much together, as have most married couples if they were to be honest. Good times, bad times, hard times… I loved him the day we were married. Today, I love him still, only more deeply.
While he would be extremely embarrassed for me to reprint what he wrote, for the sake of prosperity, and my children to one day have this, below is a portion of what the letter entailed:
I will treasure this letter always. I know that we will have more hard times to come, when those times to arise, I plan to pull this letter out and reread it to remember the wonderful man that he is, and why I married him years ago.
