Valentine’s Day can be fraught with angst.
As one husband put it, “For Valentine’s Day, men are always worrying ‘how can I not mess this up?'”
But they’re not the only ones. Women are often at a loss as to how to recognize Valentine’s Day, as well.
So, here’s a simple yet meaningful idea for anyone: write a Love Letter. We’re not talking about signing a store-bought card. Instead, consider a mushy, romantic, pour-your-heart-out, honest-to-goodness, handwritten letter.
A Love Letter costs little to nothing, yet it may be treasured for a lifetime…and beyond.
Consider this excerpt from one that’s over 100 years old:
“Best & sweetest wife in all the world, so refined & queenly & royal in nature & gentle & modest in disposition: you are womanhood’s ideal & the fairest & prettiest flower among flowers…My heart is full of love to you…”
It’s from my grandfather to my grandmother, dated August 16, 1901. He outlived her by 50 years, never re-married, and passed away in 1984 at age 106. Though I never knew my grandmother, I feel I do…through this little letter, a testament to their love.
We certainly express ourselves differently today. But, in our high-tech world, it’s the things done by hand that are becoming scarce and, therefore, more meaningful and memorable.
This Valentine’s Day, why not take pen in hand. It may just be the most treasured gift of all.
