The first line of the E news story says romance is alive and well in Hollywood, and so it is. Headlines and for good reason. Truth is that romance is alive and well lots of places, but how many people put it in writing? Hooray for Keith Urban! His wife Nicole Kidman says that he leaves her a love letter every single night he is away. This means that every night he is away, she gets to touch something that has felt the touch of his hand. It is like his being there, like holding hands across time and distance.
A love note is a big “here I am!” No danger of “out of sight out of mind,” with a daily love letter. A love note is, as a rule, a gift custom designed for one person on this planet. Like any perfect present, a love letter takes effort and planning but has some fabulous advantages over other gifts. It will never go out of style. It will always fit. It will never wither and die in the vase and it has zero calories.
Love letters are an important part of your personal history recorded by you in the magic of your own handwriting. People do not throw love letters away. The best-documented history is a packet of letters found generations later. What Keith Urban sends Nicole Kidman today will last for generations, and what a treasure that will be to their children, grandchildren and generations to come. It is definitely the gift that keeps on giving. Knowing you came from people who knew how to love and were caring enough to put it on paper is a wonderful pedigree.
Put that love in writing for the joy of the present and the joy of the future. Every romance is worth putting to paper. Every love letter changes a life for the better. Try it and see if bathing in the positive of someone you love does not bring a smile to your face. And, hooray, by the way, to Nicole Kidman for knowing that this gift is incomparable.
From me to you with love in the air,
