Love letters…

On Mondays I help teach in a class called Public Speaking. {Anyone who knows me will likely be caught unexpectedly laughing out loud, right now, because I am not a public speaker. Pretty much, to clarify, I sit there and offer the rare bit of feedback. So, sort of like a glorified student… Anyway…} This past week the class assignment was to choose a random item from a pile and give an impromptu speech to the class about what it was, and three different things you could use it for. This sweet girl, roughly 10 years old, took a bottle. My own mind filling with the hundreds of things that bottle could be used for, her very first thing took me by surprise: Put a love letter in it, and send it to sea. 

I’m obviously not much of a romantic because that idea did not grace my list. That being said though, I have to admit I LOVED it! I began to think about such things as love letters and the ways in which they can be given…

left on bed pillows…
written in lipstick, on mirrors…
through the mail, sealed with a kiss and perfume scented…
slipped under a door…
attached to a gift…
in a bottle…

A love letter, by it’s very definition, is merely a declaration of one’s love. Every time I reach for my husband’s hand- I’m doing that. Isn’t it an amazing idea to strive to live a life as a love letter? Intentionally acting upon your love, always?

I’m in love with the notion…

Today, in my 28 day challenge, i will:

– write a love letter, to my husband. I will recommit to love him and remind him of all of the reasons that I do.
– try to be a love letter for my family…
– enjoy this day of love and affection with the people I am so lucky to have and love.
