Love Note

Love Note


My Dearest Love:
You make me feel so tranquil as a walk through the beauty of a formal garden watching the sunset of a serene summer's evening.

We have earned a degree of complacency as our minds grow peaceful in old age. Most mornings I sit here with you in my heart, and we watch the sunrise together. I have never not enjoyed a sunrise or a sunset with you—some mornings there are dark clouds in the sky, but we've learned that they will soon pass. Maybe leaving behind a little rain water for the flowers to drink. No sunrise is without its own beauty, and all we need to do is look for it with the love from our hearts.

In my eyes, your love fulfills the beauty in everything. I hold your hand, and we walk around smelling the late summer flowers, dreaming of all our tomorrows. I can look back, and I can remember the first time I ever saw you and your smile changed the rhythm of my heart forever. I twas a summer eve, August 22, 1963.♥

I'll love you always
Forever and ever

Your Steve

Hello my love
They just posted today - (10/9) I’m going to answer before it escapes me and I forget. What’s that saying? Oh yeah - the road to hell is paved with good intentions. :)
When I read your words - and you talk about watching sunrise or sunset together - I remember and my heart stirs within me. Nostalgia can be beautiful - the memories and yearnings are vibrant and alive - I feel you take my hand - I know when you stand in the doorway and watch me sleep - I know when you lie down and hold me close..I know because my heart knows....
They posted the other notes - your journal - yesterday, but I didn’t see it until today - went to church community group last night and then straight to bed when I got home. I think I’m sleeping too much - because I find myself wanting to go to bed early and not get up in the morning. That’s not like me - I function best on my 4 - 5 hours. Oh well - maybe it’s age - lol
So it rained, huh? I’m jealous - we need rain badly and there’s none in our forecast. At least it’s cooled down a little - mid to low 60s at night and only 90 during the day!! Humidity has improved also, so it’s bearable - at least for a few days
Lol - to live together, we would need separate quarters. I like the house to have a temp just under 70 - and at night I prefer it to be 50 (or lower). You’d probably want it to be around 75 or 80!
Ok - 10 PM - I’m going to bed.
I love you - if I had a century I still couldn’t explain how much...I hold you in my heart
Love always and all ways
Your Jeannie
