If you’re lucky enough to have a loved one with you today, here’s the best Valentine’s Gift you can give: Write him or her a love letter. Describe the reasons you love this person, recall some special memories. Your loved one will treasure your letter always.
In May 2008, Robert and I were approaching our second wedding anniversary. (We were together 7 years, but married only 2.). We knew it would be the last we would spend together because of the progression of his cancer.
He asked, “What can I give you for our anniversary?”
“A love letter,” I told him.
He did, and it’s one of my most treasured gifts. I’ve read it over and over, and I’m reading it again today on Valentine’s Day.
