But how often do they tell you why they love you? On your birthday or anniversary, if you’re lucky?
Imagine being told what your love meant to someone, every single day. For a year.
Because this is what happened to me.
Rich sent me a message of love, via text, every day for a whole year.
Messages varied from simple things like:
to more meaningful messages such as:
and an invaluable record of my time in Japan:
Plus a plethora of haikus, which brought me endless pleasure:
I’m not sure what made Rich start sending those messages, but it was the single most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me!
And even on those days when we’d been angry or upset with each other, these messages of love were a reminder of exactly what we meant to each other.
It was especially important to me when I moved to Japan. The daily message gave both Rich and me something positive to focus on when it felt like the distance was too great. Having that continuity and connection was amazing!
And not only did he send me 365 beautiful messages, but he put them all together and made them into a book! So now we have a fabulous memento of the first year of our relationship. Well, almost the first year – we got together in February and he started sending messages in June.
I know I’ve said it before, but I honestly believe I am the luckiest woman alive.
