I’ll never forget the day I was cleaning through my top dresser drawer and found a treasure.
I almost threw out the stack of aged, yellowed papers, weathered by time and slightly torn on the edges. When I unfolded the papers and read through them, I instantly realized why I’d kept them all those years. On them were written words any woman would want to read over and over again. They were love letters from my husband that included phrases like “I love you beyond expression.” “You complete me like no other.” And “I love you desperately.”
As I read through them, my eyes teared up. And then my heart dropped.
I haven’t had a letter like this from him in years, I thought. Why doesn’t he write like this to me anymore?
