How Long Since....

When was the last time you wrote a love letter?

Not a little "I love you" at the bottom of the grocery list:

Raisin Bran
luv u!

I don't mean the 8 or 9 words you scribbled on the birthday card as you sat in the parking lot of Rite-Aid?

A Smiley Face on a lunch sack doesn't count either.

When was the last time you dug out a beautiful sheet of stationary, sat quietly, putting pen to paper and wrote:

My Dearest Love.....

My Darling.....

Did you tell her how you much you love the way she touches your back until you fall asleep?

Did you tell him how awesome you feel when he places his hand at the small of your back when you cross the street together or how you love how he holds your face when he kisses you?

Have you shared with your lover how wonderful it is to reach out in the middle of the night with your foot or your hand and feel their warmth and their presence?  Have you put it down on paper what a blessing their presence is to you?

Have you written a love letter to your child? My Darling Daughter, My Dearest Son?  What a blessing you are in my life. Have I ever told you how much you mean to me?

When you take the time to share those marvelous moments with someone you love, it truly says:

I love you, even when I can't see you, even when I'm not with you.

Pick up that pen. Cut out a sheet of paper from a grocery sack if you need to, but write that letter!

Don't wait until tomorrow!


  1. I always write letters but not to my beloved husband ;)

    Joy always,
