Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: The Letter

"I met my wife when we were both in our early twenties. We were crazy about each other (still are!). Soon after we started dating I was sent away on a long business trip. We were apart for months. On a whim one day, I wrote her a funny and romantic letter. We talked on the phone every night but she had mentioned on our last call that 'it wasn't the same' as being together. I figured the letter would at least be something she could hold in her hands.

Then, just as I was going to mail it, I had another idea. I put the letter in an envelope, wrote my wife's name on it, sealed the envelope, and put it away.

It was our tenth anniversary this year. A few days before the big date, I pulled out the letter I had written so many years ago, and addressed the envelope to our home address. I wrote, 'To Be Opened On Your Anniversary'. And I dropped the letter in the mail.

My wife's jaw dropped when she opened the letter and realized that it had been written years and years ago. She even got a little teary-eyed, which is saying something since she doesn't cry easily! It was nice to see her so surprised and happy over such a small gesture."
