The Love Letter Campaign: His Letter to Me
This is an amazing letter my husband recently wrote to me while on our Healing Trip with the Higher Ground for Veterans and their Caregivers..
I value everyday because I have you to guide me through the fog. You are the light at the end of a dark tunnel to me. I know that I do not show you how much I appreciate what you do for me, but I am very grateful for everyday I have had you in my life. You make life bearable for me and take care of so much. You are an amazing mother and wife to me. You have put up with so much and we have gotten through so much. I am so grateful to have met you. You are the best thing that happened to me in life besides the kids and I hope we can grow to live long together and have better times. I love you so much.
This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by FamilyOfaVet.com to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat. To share your love letter or find out more about the campaign, visit http://www.familyofavet.com/love_letters.html.
