That's the most beautiful, amazing gift he could possibly have given her. Knowing how much time and love he put into that...it's something she'll treasure forever - and she'll feel treasured every time she reads one of his notes to her.

*happy sigh* Thank you, Rob. That was a wonderful post.

This is the best gift he could've ever given her. With technology these days, he can keep in contact other ways, but he chose a handwritten note, you can't get any better than that! Love

Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

How incredible is that?! thud Beautiful. loveheart


This reminds me of the romance between my parents. Love They met at a dance two weeks before he was stationed with the Navy on Guam. My mom has an entire box of letters my dad wrote to her throughout his duration there, about a year. The box looks as packed full as this case here. When he returned, they were madly in love and married shortly thereafter, and just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in May. Love My dad still hasn't let us read all the letters; my sisters and I have only read a few. The written word can be a very romantic and powerful thing ...my mom always said that my dad expressed his feelings beautifully and won her heart this way. Amazing, considering they barely had time to spend together in person before getting married! And the rest is history! Wink

This is the portrait that Lisa did for my parents' 50th anniversary! loveheart Applause

Beautiful story, Amy. And what a beautiful portrait. It represents a lot of wonderful people: your Mom, your Dad, you, and Lisa.
