Love is a gift that should be expressed on a daily basis. With the hustle and bustle of life, we often get so busy that we forget to show our spouse that we love them.
A thoughtful handwritten letter is a great way to express your love when you are not physically with one another, because it can be kept and cherished forever. When your hubby needs a push in the middle of the day, but you can't be there to help, a letter from you can be just what he needs to get through.
Set aside 30 minutes in your day to write this romantic handwritten love letter. Here are 5 tips for writing a letter that your husband will love and hold on to for years to come.
1. Share what you neglect to say
Have you told him lately how proud you are of his accomplishments? Have you reminded him of the joy he has brought to not only your family, but to you personally? Wives often forget to share what they are constantly thinking about, because they don't know it needs to be said. You can never be too grateful for someone who loves you. Share how thankful you are for everything he has taught you, shown you and done for you.
2. Compliment him
Even if you think he knows you love his big brown eyes and alluring white smile, tell him again. Maybe you have noticed that he has been eating better and looking healthier. Acknowledge it. Sometimes a simple compliment can make a world of difference. Praise will help him feel motivated and want to succeed. Although men communicate a little differently than women, they still need affirmation and encouragement from their loving wives.
3. Open up
Let him know what you are thinking about and what you are going through. Do you want to go back to school? Have another baby? He wants to know what he can do to help you feel loved too, so tell him! The more transparent you allow your letter to be, the more likely your true emotions will flow on the page, allowing your feelings to dig deeper.
4. What does he want to hear?
Remember that this letter is for your sweetie. Ask yourself what he wants to hear and go from there. Expressing his value in the world, how much you respect and admire him, and how he has grown as a man can mean worlds to him. Maybe he recently got a promotion at work and has been working really hard. Share with him how you have seen his hard work and love everything that he has accomplished. You know your husband more than anyone, which means that your opinion and praise matter the most to him.
