“All your life, you will be faced with a choice. You can choose love or hate … I choose love.”
― Johnny Cash
I’m not a swooner. I don’t do swooning. But, this one time, my normally very unromantic husband wrote me a card – in it he said:
My Rebbie, You are the best part of my every day xxx
And f@#k me – did I swoon … then shared it on Facebook, obviously.
Other people are romantic too …
A British poll – undertaken by a British Life Insurance company in a bid to boost the romance factor this Valentine’s Day – has declared that a love letter, written in 1994, by Johnny Cash to his wife June Carter is the most romantic love letter ever. And I would have to agree.
People of the world, take notes – Johnny’s game was strong:
June 23 1994
Happy Birthday Princess,
We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.
But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.
Happy Birthday Princess.
And that tharrr is how to pen a letter of love … and possibly get yourself laid – I’m assuming.
Love isn’t always perfect, though …
A letter written in 1527 from King Henry VIII to his second wife Anne Boleyn – whom he later had beheaded – also made the cut. Ha, go figure.
Ever written – or had written for you – a love letter?
