My Darling Husband,
Over the weekend, I read an article on HubPages.com. It said that I can show you how much I care by writing you a love letter. Not one to let a golden opportunity like this pass me by, I thought it best to follow the suggestion.
Step 1: Open the letter with love
Check. Note the use of the word “darling” above.
Step 2: Tell him the reasons he’s so wonderful
Let’s be honest. I probably do not give you enough credit for everything you do. One thing I’ve been working on lately is to remind myself how much I appreciate you and why you mean the world to me.
I also want to pass along a sincere thank you for the advice you give me on most matters in my life. You continually strive to steer me in the right direction. I love you for that.
However, might I return the favor, with love?
Self empowerment can be tremendously inspiring. I whole-heartedly encourage you to experience its greatness firsthand. If you are asking yourself, “how do I do this,” I might be able to help. One idea is to become a bit of a lighter sleeper, now that we have kids. This would enable you to hear them when they cry at night and get out of bed to see how you can help.
If you want to talk with me more about “empowerment” sometime, know that I have tons of other super-fun ideas.
Step 3: Close with passion
(I’m not sure how to do this, so I am going to skip this step.)
Your Adoring Wife
In coming up with this post, I thought it could be vastly improved if Geoff wrote a response. He declined. However, we agreed that I could write a letter for him…
Dear Adoring Wife,
Who are you and what have you done with the woman I live with? You have never used the word “darling” in reference to me in your entire life.
Three words for you: Suck it up. Your life is not that hard.
Your Darling Husband
PS: Ask yourself how much time you spend on the computer and then repeat my magical three words that I mentioned above. I love you.
