The Greatest Love Letter Ever Written

The only relevant mail I actually get are bank statements, and even that I think is old school since everyone gets them electronically. The days of letter writing and post cards have been replaced by texts and emails. Modern communication doesn’t have the same effect and authenticity that is delivered from a hand-written letter and honestly, could you imagine Johnny Cash ever telling June Carter of these exact sentiments through an email? The insurance company Beagle Street had a poll to find the greatest love letter ever written. The winning letter didn’t have fancy vocabulary but was a simple letter written from John to June to mark her 65th birthday. I can’t contest the result.

It reads:

Happy Birthday Princess,

We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.

Happy Birthday Princess.

John
