Reminder Of Love: A Commitment Letter From A Husband
Found A love Letter in a Drawer...
Rummaging through a drawer recently, I found a letter written by a man several years ago at the very beginning of his courtship to his girlfriend. They were both in the doubting phase, yet couldn't deny what was happening. It sparks a memory of newfound love, excitement and exploration. In a flash, all the feelings came bouncing off the page and hit me square in the face.
Hi, hope this letter finds you in a happy time in every way. I just wanted to write you and tell you how wonderful a Lady you are to me. I sure did enjoy this weekend with you and look forward to our next opportunity to be together again. I want to make you see how very special and precious you are to me. I feel so lacking when it comes to telling you how I feel. I am so attracted to you that I want to do as much as I can to make you know I see a very beautiful woman every time I look at you, even if you aren’t feeling very beautiful at that particular time. You have beauty that everyone cannot see, particularly inside as well as outside. I find myself daydreaming about you constantly and thinking I really feel like you are the woman I have been searching for. I know I was a fool not to see that from the very beginning.
Please don’t doubt me when I say I love you because I am completely content to be with you any time you and our schedules permit. You will have to forgive my inability to express myself with you. I can see that you have the same problem and both of us will have to overcome our doubts which haunt us because of our past experiences. I hope you will allow me to grow closer and more intimate in every part of your life. My fears are the same as yours in a lot of ways. I don’t want to fall in love and then be cast aside as if I were just a used up toy. That is why I hesitate to tell you I love you.
I have been let down by people who say they love me one day and ignore me the next. I can’t help but think that because you have experienced the same thing you will appreciate me and realize I am sincere in this relationship and have high hopes of a lasting (lifelong) romance that will never stagnate. Please believe me when I say
I love you.

After reading this letter several times, I recognized a soundness that inspired the urgency to bear both the good and the bad until there is nothing left to give. If ever there was time for renewal, it's now. Everyone knows that marriage is difficult, tedious and sometimes boring. It takes work to sustain a relationship over the years. It's the hardest job you'll ever have! A marriage can withstand anything as long as it has a good foundation. The honesty and commitment are the two main structures for remaining harmonious. I'm no marriage counselor, for sure. But I do know this fact: Marriage isn't about lovey dovey feelings and sex. It's a partnership between two people who have pledged a promise to each other to build a life together. Sometimes it doesn't last. Or maybe the two shouldn't have joined together in the first place. Whatever the outcome, working together to maintain unity is the key to a successful life together. Without both partners contributing, the marriage could be in danger of collapsing. I pray that sharing this letter may inspire and motivate someone who may have been having doubts about their marriage to re-examine why you joined together in the first place.
