Lifetime Of Love Letters

January 21st, 2012 was the first time I received a letter in the mail from my sweetheart. It looked different from the other envelopes. It had been forever since I saw handwriting on the front of an envelope. There was a large red stamp that wrote, "SOLANO STATE PRISON". It bothered me then, but I soon learned to let that roll off my back.

A magical change happens when you see someone's handwriting for the first time. All the conversations we had before were solidified in the lead of his pencil. His script told more about him than the words he wrote.

For a year now we have been exchanging hand written letters. Since it is difficult to speak to each other on the phone, writing is our primary source of communication. And I've got to admit, I underestimated the power of the written word. We fell in love on paper. If a stranger were to read our letters in chronological order, they would witness the miracle of two people made specifically for each other find true love. The connection that I have made with this man is undoubtedly the most honest and pure feeling in the world. I've met my match.

Recently, I tried to figure out what makes our relationship so great because If you look at us from a distance, it looks horrible! He is in PRISON! I have not touched him in years! I sometimes go weeks without hearing his voice! I have to PAY to speak on the phone with him. (and it ain't cheap!lol)

But then, as I reached for my glass of water on the table, I saw a letter I opened the night before. His scribbles, his language, the way he writes my name.....it does something to me. It invites me into him. It gets my heart beating, my blood pumping. I get goosebumps when I read about how much he loves me. When I read those words, my heart flutters and I get all hot and bothered. Passion simply seeps out of my pores when I read his letters.

I believe that the power of a written love letter has made what we have so happy and healthy. I told him this morning that I will continue to write him love letters even when he is my husband and we share a bed every night.

So get out a pen and paper, and write a letter to someone. It will help you in more ways than you think
