The Sweetest Letter From My Husband

 

 

I will always remember the exact moment I read this very letter. A flood of tender love & emotion ran through me and instantly healed my heart from hurtful words. I truly felt what it is like to forgive quickly and to forget all previous painful conversations. It was as though this letter hit the “refresh” button for my mind and heart.

It’s hard to explain, but I instantly felt safe. Such a huge burden was lifted off of my shoulders in a single second, and replaced with pure wholesomeness & comfort. I completely love my husband and how he snuggles so perfectly into my heart and soul.  ❤

Hello My Sweet Ladylove,

I love you…I miss you.

Early on in our relationship I said some things according to how I felt at that time. I said some things that formed in my mind as a result of being single, alone, and in prison for such a long time.

There was no way to prepare me for a woman like you. You are soooo much more than I ever expected. I didn’t know I could be loved in the manner in which you love me. Baby, you have caused me to change my perspective.

I am sooooo incredibly in love with you!

When I come home I want to come home to you, our kids, our home. A few years ago, I didn’t even think this was an option. Now it is my reality. Thank you baby.

A few years ago, I thought I wanted lots of women when I get out. I now see that I have everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman…in you! My beautiful, sexy, talented wife! I am yours and only yours. Mwah.

I speak the truth and I say what I mean. I’m sharing all this with you because it’s important that you know how I feel, and where my priorities are. I’m ALL about YOU…my wife…the woman I love.

I’m sorry I was so confused early on in our relationship.

Your love has set me straight. My heart and soul belong to you and only you. I will do my best to be the man you need me to be. Thank you for being patient with me as you mold me to your loving ways.

Would you like to attend the Significant Woman’s Event with me this year?
I would absolutely love that!

You are forever snuggled in my heart.
I love you Suzie Marie.

Forever Yours,
Steven

  1. This is so huge. I and my husband, well he was in jail for a little while also. Such complicated things in our way. But, God willing, He will get us back together. Thank you for sharing your story.

  2. Another side of love for me. I am married. I love my husband. We’ve been together 16 years. We aren’t young. The man my blog is about – Jamie Cummings – and the book I am writing is also about love. I am 30 years older than he is. I am the grandmother of his son. In November i will have known him for 11 years. We have been through so much. His crisis – my crisis. He never had anyone in his life that cared enough a bout him to ask him how he was – about anything. It startled him because he said no one ever tried to “conversate” with him about life or made him feel that he mattered. Over these years a love grew – human to human. A love that didn’t matter how old someone was or what race they were or anything they might have done in the past. The heart can be a big place with lots of love in it. It isn’t “Owned” by one person. It doesn’t threaten the man I’m married to I know there are people who wouldn’t understand why two people separated by miles would want to be married, or what was the point of it anyway. But people who are married and living in the same house doesn’t mean they will have a good marriage.

    Another inmate that I have been writing to for the past couple years is on death row at San Quentin. In the past year his x came back into his life ( they weren’t married) and the love that had been dormant sprang to life again and in his last letter he said they were talking marriage. He will never get out of prison, yet there was enough value in their lives to want to “be” together. I had never known him to be so happy and it was so nice to hear that from him. I think there are things married people on the outside might not understand about marriage that inmates and their significant others already know..
