Love Letters by Great Men......

Good morning, on July 7
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
ever thine
ever mine
ever ours......

This letter
was written by Beethoven to his Immortal love.

I first heard this letter while watching Sex and the City the movie. It got my mind thinking of why love letter aren't still written. Then I realized it is of course because of our dependence on technology. Texting and emails have gotten in the way of written love letters.

Love Letters...

I love getting mail it makes me so excited. I don't even know how to explain the fact that I love to receive mail. I especially love mail from Tom. If you don't already know Tom is in the wood of Montana right now and we rarely get to talk. So letters or as some refer to it snail mail is how we communicate.

So maybe that is why I love letters. Letters are how I get to talk to my love. And I get beyond excited when I receive a letter from Montana. It like Christmas morning when you get to open presents yet this time the present is a little bit of Tom's heart on a piece of paper. A little bit of his heart that I  miss because we are so far away.

 I love reading about how much fun he is having in Montana and it really makes me excited to see that you can really love what you are doing (because I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life but knowing that there is something out there that you can love makes me excited to find my passion).

But anyway back to LOVE LETTERS, I want love letters, I need love letters, they keep me going. And the best part is I receive love letters.

Tom's letters always show me how he doing, but they also show me his ever loving heart. These letters I receive every other week are my love letters. His snail mail notes keep me going when I don't think I can do this long distance relationship anymore.

All this brings me to my point of this blog post. Everyone needs some love letters in their life. Okay so maybe guys don't truly treasure love letter like woman but who knows maybe they would enjoy them too. So, I think even if you live in the same house, town, or it actually it really doesn't matter where you are you should write your love, love letters. Don't make these just a quick little note. Write down things you love about that person and things that you miss when they aren't around. Put your heart and soul into that letter or  those letterS.

I believe that Love letter might have been an old fashion tradition but I think is it a tradition that needs to be returned to the 21st century.
