Dear future husband,
How’s it going?
How are you? I really hope that you are well. In 2017 I decided to start this gratitude challenge. I started it in order to start appreciating the things and people that I have in my life.
For the past couple of years I have thought that married life would be better than single life. Is it? However growing up I always thought I would never get married.
How did you manage to talk me around to the idea of getting married? I must have thought you were Not. That. Bad. 😉
Am I easy to live with? I bet I’m
a nightmare awesome to live with! I bet I complain to you about leaving your dirty washing around right? And about how you always leave opened wrappers on the dining room table? Not to mention the pots, one by one stacked up in the sink. Why do you leave them there? Because why wash them straight away when you have more in the cupboard…? *Facepalm*
But I bet I secretly like cleaning up after you.
I can imagine that you NEVER have any sense of urgency. And that I can’t count on two hands how many times we will have nearly missed a bus or train through your bad time management. I bet it drives me insane! Some would call it uptight, yet I can imagine that you would call it cute. You will always find a positive!
I’m glad you’re the relaxed one of the two of us.
Do I cook for you? I really that hope I do! I really love cooking. I can imagine that I used to cook just see your face light up at a home cooked meal. I always thought that you ate out at restaurants too much anyway.
You are always so thankful.
I will always love it when you cook for me. You will always tell me that you can’t cook and that’s it’s nothing special, but to me it is. I will appreciate the effort.
Do we visit the river? I can imagine the summer nights when we will walk along the river hand in hand looking at the glistening water. And in the Autumn and Spring, it will be become a little colder and you will hand me your jacket. A true gentleman. And when it comes to the time for you to drive me home, I will prey that we hit every red light just so I could spend a little more time with you. Cheesy I know, but I always wanted to live inside a movie.
When I think of you. I don’t think of you as my husband. I think of you as my best friend, my companion. I think of you as the person that will always be there for me. I think of you as the person that I can turn to, the person I can tell my deepest darkest secrets to. The person I can yell at and come 4am you will hold me as I tell you that I’m sorry for yelling at you. Then I would tell you that I can act a little crazy sometimes. And you will tell me that it’s okay. Yet, I will insist that it’s not.
We will always agree to disagree.
I think of you as a person I can support, help, encourage and love. I think of you as a person that I will be there for when things are hard and when things are good. I want to be be the person that is there for you when you need me, just as you are always here for me.
I will tell you that I love you, and you will always say “I love you more” You will make me feel loved and wanted. You will tell me that there is no obstacle that we cannot overcome. And when I start doubting, you will tell me over and over ways in which we can make our future happen.
Your passion and determination is what I find most attractive.
*** I’m writing this letter as a reminder to both of us. A reminder to you if you even for one second forget just how much I love you. And as a reminder to myself if I ever forget just how grateful I am to have someone like you in my life.
Your future wife.
