Baby, I'm so excited about the birthday of Today's Letters!!! It has been such a joy watching you work on this project over the last few months. My heart dances in anticipation for the letters to come! Thank you for sharing this gift with others!

I ended up here from Tim's blog and I must say that I love it! What a sweet/great idea! It looks like you two have an awesome relationship. My husband and I used to live in different states (before we were married) and wrote letters a lot. Recently, I've been thinking about those times, maybe I will start writing him letters again. Thanks for a great idea!

man, I think that I am sorta in love with you guys. I've had a rough year... my life was sorta tossed around, shaken upside down and spewed back out at me (well, not ALL of my life, but a good chunk of it) and I sort of lost sight of my relationship with my husband (also Tim!) and all of the reasons that I fell so madly and deeply in love with him. We had kids and our silliness got lost somehow, shuffled between diaper changes and pumping milk and cleaning up an endless stream of toys.

But finding you today (and it's a miracle that TODAY was the day I found you - I was having a rough time) reeled me back in. I read every single entry with tears streaming down my face. I remembered my love, my Dr. Thunder (just silly things that I've called him along the way), the things that he's said in his sleep and the love notes that he's left me in the strangest of places. It reminded me that we waited for each other... and found each other and just the right time, when we were both prepared for this earth shattering love that I tend to take for granted.

After reading 1/2 way through your letters, my heart felt like it could burst and I thought to myself, "I can spend each day depressed by the things that have gone wrong in my life, that I cannot change (so being depressed over them is fruitless), or I can focus on what is GOOD and beautiful in my life..." and really - how could there even BE a choice!?

I wrote my husband a love letter and packed his lunch tonight for tomorrow (something I did every day before we had kids) and you guys... I feel a lightness and a happiness that I haven't felt in SO LONG. so thank you. Thanks for putting on your little miner hats and leading me out of the darkness back home. It feels good.

And thank you for sharing a bit of your life with us. I can't wait to watch the story unfold... it's such a beautiful tale.

sara, you get three leg kicks for making the mr. and i cry. i loved reading your comment. easily one of my top three so far. i appreciate your honesty and transparency more than you know! i've learned (and need constant reminding) that love is a choice. i have the opportunity to succeed every day at loving tim if i want. your simple lunch and love letter will go far. can't wait to hear how your mister responds. keep taking it one day at a time. your story is not done! xoxo, em

You guys are my favorite :)

My husband responded kindly, as is always his manner. He really is the *perfect* guy for me. Funny how things have a way of working out that way. We met later in our lives and he's 11 years older, but you'd never know it by looking at him and surely couldn't tell by his behavior (which, for the most part is a GOOD thing! The cannonballs in the biscuit? Right up our ally! Just gets tiresome when I feel like I have 3 boy children instead of 2 and a husmick (my favorite nickname for him)). Can you do parentheticals inside one another? :D

Anyway - that morning Tim left me a note that said, "Thank you, my sweet wife. I love you a million 4th of July's and a storm troopers something or other - some geeky thing that meant a WHOLE LOT!" Honestly, it made my day writing his love note and making his lunch and getting a love note back the following morning made my next day. It's been awhile since I've had two stellar days in a row! I think we're on to something here!

So, again, thank you for the gentle nudge, the reminder. To keep love fresh and exciting and most importantly silly. All too often I think that people start becoming silent and invisible more of the time than not throughout the day and that's a scary reality. I don't want to slip in to that and then look back, knowing I could have changed it... with something as simple as a fist pump or pat on the bum.

You guys make me happy, so I will continue reading faithfully. I'll probably write you guys love letters such as these every so often as well. I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut, especially when I have a crush on someone... and I'm not going to lie - I am TOTALLY crushing on you guys!

Take care of yourselves and each other, do an extra cannonball (my littles LOVE cannonballs!) into the biscuit for us tonight and never forget that there was a reason you sought one another out and stuck together. Life is only as good as you make it! :)

(PS - I am curious about how Taza encouraged the 2nd letter of the day to husband? Can I be nosy and ask? I tried to super sleuth around myself, but came up empty handed. Shucks.)

sara, extra cannonball in the biscuit, check. thanks for the update. it can be easy to just swim through our days and not be intentional with those we love. thanks for the reminder. ps, taza often writes letters to her husband, usually 2 : )
