A Letter To My Husband

Where did you and your husband meet? Reflecting on the good moments; the memories that you want to remember, write a letter to your husband.

Dear You,

You know I am so thankful that the Lord sent me to T.J.Maxx that day back in 1986. Why? Because, if that had not of happened, I would not have met you.

I remember you and your family went on vacation right after I started working there. I don't even know how long you were gone. All I know is that every time I turned around, someone was saying, "Tim did that" or " Tim said this." It was enough to make me wonder who you were because it seemed that you had hung the moon :).

Thank you for having the courage to ask me out and then to ask me out again. I cannot imagine what my life would be like right now if you had not tried again.

You have become my hero. No, really. You swooped in and rescued me from a bad life at home. Thank you for caring enough about me to do that.

Yes, we have had our hard times over the years. I know that I am not an easy person to live with. I have often wondered if maybe you should have ended up with someone more like yourself; an extrovert. So many times over the years, I have wondered if I hold you back.

Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being in agreement with me that the boys needed their mom at home. Thank you for being willing to be the sole breadwinner in the family.

Thank you for holding my hand when we go out. I often catch myself wondering who the hand holding is for. Me. It is for me :). Being in public is overwhelming for me. Holding your hand gives me strength and keeps me grounded in the moment.

Thank you for always opening doors for me. You have a rule that I am not allowed to touch a door knob or handle. It means a lot to me.

With all of my illnesses, it means a lot to me to have you there. You provide strength and moral support. I know that if/when I get dizzy (which happens a lot) you are there.

Thank you so much.

I love you.


Ephesians 4:2 NIV 

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Let's Pray:

Dear Father,  thank You for the way that You weave together the parts of our lives. Thank You for blessing me with my husband. There have been hard times throughout our marriage. There have been times when You have felt distant from us. However, You were not the one that moved. Thank You for helping us to be completely humble and gentle. Thank You for helping us to humble ourselves enough to know that we need You. Help us to always be patient as we bear with one another in love. In Jesus' name,  Amen.
