Dear Husband

Dear Husband

It’s not your birthday, our anniversary or any other special occasion.  Today is just a normal day, but it’s the perfect day for me to thank you for helping me to love myself.  Are you perfect? No.  Is our marriage perfect? No, but that’s ok because with every disagreement we grow, and I am absolutely loving it.  I am amazed at the way your love and acceptance has helped to set me free….
From my teens well into my twenties I did not know what truly ‘loving me’ looked like.  As you know,  at one point I just thought this was how my life would be.  I didn’t know how it felt to be free and go through life loving ‘me’, especially my body.  As time went on, my confidence and self acceptance grew and then, God sent you.

Your love is pure, beautiful, non-judgemental and you’ve shown me time and time again that I’m enough for you.  It’s as though, your love gave me the key to fully love myself and when that happened I felt like I could fly……!  When I feel inadequate and weak, you’re there to let me know that I’m a strong and powerful woman, always cheering me on and backing up your encouragement with actions.

This is the power of a good man! A good man will make a woman who has body issues feel like America’s next top model.  A good man let’s his woman know she’s special.  A good man doesn’t need glitz and glamour every day of the week.  He tells his wife she is gorgeous when she has no makeup on; sitting on the couch in sweats with a hot water bottle on her belly, as she deals with her ‘womanly’ moment.  A good man builds up his woman, and admits when he is wrong.

So, with all that being said husband, thank you for helping me to love me  with all my flaws and imperfections.  Thank you for being  the man I dreamt about when I was little.  Last but not least, thank you for being my good man.

Love, your wife

    I have been around you and your husband – not much but enough. As I read this letter I felt so proud (or do I mean relieved? Lol) because this is exactly what I see in you both. Yet I am also aware of the saying “to know me is one thing but to live with me is another” so to read your heart about your man made me exhale because you have confirmed that he is indeed all he appears to be. It’s real. Love you. Xx
