Dear Future Husband,
This letter is to you, the person who I believe that I will spend the rest of my life with. I am so thrilled to be able to spend the rest of my very existence on this Earth with you. Only you.
As my soon to be husband, there are some things I would like to ask of you.
First and foremost, please take care of me. Take notice when I’m not feeling right. Be on your guard if things seem a little fishy. And please be patient with me. As you already know, I am NOT perfect. And no matter how hard I will try not to, I WILL make mistakes. DISCLAIMER: I am annoying! I am hard to deal with. Just stating the obvious! So please my love, have patience.
I beg of you to not take me for granted. I’ve had too many people take advantage of me and made me feel like an afterthought. Like I am nothing. People have hurt me. Even my closest friends and family. To the point where I believed that I deserved that hurt.
Please don’t ever leave me. I need you with me. Right by my side. Helping me, encouraging me, and fighting the battles of life with me. I’ve been alone for too long in this world. Feeling like a mistake. A failure. Feeling unloved and unwanted. Even by my own family.
Lift me up when I fall. Encourage me when I’m upset. Make me laugh to the point of tears and stomach aches. Hold me like you could never let me go. Kiss me, like you miss me. Give me piggyback rides whenever we go on long walks. Tell me that you love me, but more importantly, SHOW me that you love me. Call me out of the blue to encourage me. And catch me off guard when you come to see me! You know I love surprises!
Keep me safe from harm’s way. Protect me from those who want to hurt me. Please hold my hand whenever you see it shake, or see it lonely. Please lend me your hoodies! I get cold VERY often! As you hug me please don’t forget to pick me up and spin me like a princess. Please play with my hair. All the time! Try to wrestle me, and you will most definitely lose. Although, you know my tickle spot so, please be gentle as you unleash the tickle monster upon me.
Please remind me that I am beautiful because I can never convince myself that I am. Most importantly, please remind me of who I am. Remind me that I am loved and that I am a good person. Because I often forget that. Keep me accountable and point me into God’s arms. Lead me closer to God and please remind me of who God says I am. Put the scriptures of the Bible directly in my face if I’m not living them out to the fullest. Remind me that I am everything because of God. That I am fearfully and wonderfully made by the creator of the universe. That I am nothing without him. And how God has graciously given you to me. YOU, my love! To be my partner in crime. My best friend! My goofball! My husband! After all, I am the princess, you are my wonderful prince, and God is our Mighty King.
I love you so much. SO SO SOOOOOO MUCH! So much that you can’t even fathom. There hasn’t been a single day that I haven’t dreamed of this moment. Where you, fulfill this role as my future husband. And I cannot wait for that amazing day. The one where I say, “I do.”
