Time Travelled — almost 16 years

For Sarah

Dec 10, 2005 Dec 10, 2021


Peaceful right?

Dear Sarah, I'm writing this on Dec. 10, 2005, while you're away with your girls. Oh, I love you. I found this site while "stumbling," hitting a button on the browser that takes you to random websites. Instead of writing a letter to my future self, I thought I'd rather write one to my wife. My worst nightmare right now, is that I have Huntington's Disease, and will someday end up something like my dad. I never want to think that I might treat you the way he now treats mom. So let me take a moment to tell you how much I love you. (Even if I don't have HD, this'll make a nice surprise in 15 years....) I love you. I love you pregnant with our 3rd baby-o. I love your laugh, especially at our jokes. I love our guardian angel baby-sitter (s/he still working for us?) I love your love for our children. I love watching you with our children. I love your body (...oh, so beautiful!) I love your excitement for me and my little toys. I love going on (our rare but wonderful) dates with you. I love that you keep reading good, but awfully depressing books. I love that you love me. I love that you're so close to your family. I love sleeping in bed with you. I hate sleeping alone. I love that you love pink (even if you don't wear it that often). I love that you try so hard to keep our little family healthy. I love that you studied greek. I love that you collect christmas trees. I love your scrapbooks of our family (you are soooo creative!) I love how you kiss me. I love doing stuff with you. I love sitting beside you. I love reading in bed with you. I love our sense of humour. I love you. Have a great day! Love, Steve

I can't tell you how much I keep coming back and reading the letter you wrote to your wife. I can only hope that I end up with a man as great as you. Wishing you, your wife and your loved ones all the best ^w^
