Write a Love Letter

Remember when you were dating and romance was fresh? Your love was new. Exciting. Captivating. Mysterious. You nurtured it. Savored it. Treasured it. And, most likely, at some time or another, wrote about it.

You took great care in penning words to your lover. Thoughts from your heart dripped off the page like honey from a spoon to be tasted only by your beloved.

Now years later, you barely speak to one another, let alone write love notes. Oh, you might grunt an affirmation to your wife while riveted to the TV screen. Or you might bombard your husband with the kids’ concerns as soon as he walks in the door from work.

But as far as taking the time to get down on paper why you love your mate, well, if you were honest, you would probably say, “No, I haven’t done that in a long time.”

Well, no better time than the present. Dust off that sweet smelling stationery. Search for that fancy feather pen and wax eloquent to your spouse. Write down what you appreciate about your partner. Thank your mate for the ways s/he fills your life with joy. This is not the time to air complaints. Instead, pour on the positive affirmation. It may just be the most precious gift you give your spouse today.
