Happy Tuesday! Time to share a fun story from your past. Have you ever written or received a love letter and what became of that person?

Yes and yes... tongue I was a single mom and had begun to date this gentleman whom I knew. Before we started dating he had planned a vacation during the holidays to see his parents and couldn't cancel. He didn't want to leave me and I didn't want him to leave but both of us knew he had to go. So, I loaded up on some postcards to send to him at his parents address. What I didn't know was that he had done the same thing. We had promised to write but I wasn't sure he was the kind who would actually put pen to paper and mail it off.

Anyway, I mailed the postcards in envelopes since his parents didn't know about me yet and they just thought I was forwarding his mail to him. eyes wink Well, one day I hurried to the mailbox to see if I had anything and sure enough there was the cutest Garfield card with a sweet note on it. What was even funnier was it was the exact same postcard I had sent to him the day before and they had crossed in the mail! shocked smilewinkgrin

And what happened is...we've been married over 16 years now and I love him with everything I have. And I still have those postcards we sent each other. So keep those love letter and notes flying even if you've been married for many years. And if you don't have a 'special' someone in your life you can tell a friend, grandchild, or cousin that you love them, just maybe not quite like you would a sweetheart...lol It keeps your heart young and a smile on everyone's face!

And what's your love letter story?

Yes. There is something special about handwritten letters and cards. Especially when you are in a long distance relationship, as I was. Email is great, and so are phone calls, but they just lack that personal touch that a letter conveys. The result? We celebrate our 9th anniversary this year. I save all the cards we give each other and put them into a scrapbook. Maybe one day, it will be an important way for future generations to know a bit more about who we were.

In high school, my steady boyfriend went to another school. During our study halls
we would write eachother long passionate love letters. We would exchange them when
we saw eachother, but would wait to read them when we were alone. I had a box I
kept in my closet where I thought they were hid. Years later I found out my younger
sisters would entertain their friends by reading them aloud.
My boyfriend  and I broke up after high school graduation. I haven't seen him in years
but over the years he has stopped in to visit my parents. You never forget your high
school sweetheart. We both are happily married to someone else.
Hugs, Robin

Yes and yes. I have written and received love letters from most of the boyfriends I have had in the past. My hubby sometimes surprises me with cards to make me smile, and I try to do the same for him. A lot of the time, I don't have money, so I like to send e-cards to the people I love. The first guy I was ever engaged to, I wrote him love letters all the time, and he wrote them to me as well. A lot of the time, that was all we could do because his parents hated me. LOL. I also wrote and received love letters from the second guy I was engaged to. He turned out to be a total a-hole. But, anyways. Now I have my wonderful hubby. Actually, thinking about this makes me want to send him a really sweet e-card letting him know how much I love and appreciate him.

I think your story was really sweet, Mom. Tell Dad I said hi!
