If I am being honest, I have not thought about you in a while and this is not to say that you are not important, but you are not my MAIN priority at the moment. I am working to be able to contribute to the lifestyle I want us to have, however, I am not opposed to you wanting to fully take care of me. As much as I am an independent woman, when it comes to you, I do not mind being a kept woman. A kept woman who will be at liberty to fulfil her purpose, and that for me is to write.
Anyway, enough about me. How are you? Have you eaten and are you taking care of yourself for me? The last time I wrote to you was 2 years ago and in that letter I made a lot of promises to you. It could be the euphoria of February that has nudged me to write to you. Or it could be the books I have dedicated myself to read and review this month that has jolted my heart to thinking of “us”.
I see us travelling a lot, seeing the world and you seeing my world in the many mirrors of different hotels rooms we will stay in around the world. I see you rubbing my back and kissing my forehead when cramps get the best of me. I see you believing the best in me, even when I can not see it or believe in myself. I see you annoying me, rolling my eyes but in that very moment, remembering how blessed I am to have you in my life.
I see you reading my work and asking me “serious” questions at seminars and speaking engagements, only because you want to get me outside of my comfort zone. I see us going on date nights, going dancing and trying new restaurants. I see us sleeping in on our days off and having breakfast for dinner. I see us walking our dog in the park and discussing our kid’s names. I see us planning forever in a day and our days lasting forever. I see US! I believe in US!
Ours will be a sacrificial love. A kind love, a patient love, a love that is slow to anger and love which is not envious. It will be a love born out of 1 Corinthians 13 as a result of John 3 v 16. Ours will be a gentle love, a soft love that will only bring tears of joy and gratitude. I haven’t met you yet but I pray for this love every morning when I pray for you. I will be thinking of you tonight as I go to sleep, remembering how when I see you, I never have to lose myself to gain you.
