Dear Husband: Don’t You Dare Stop Believing

Share the Love

Dear Man,

It’s been awhile since I wrote to you, but I saw a look on your face the other night during our weekly money meeting that made me cringe a little, and I’ve been thinking about it so much since then I just had to write to you about it.

You and I were trying to figure out how to save up for your new car, our big trip to Europe, and a proper anniversary celebration, and the numbers weren’t crunching quite the way we’d hoped. I smiled and said, “we’ll get there”, but for a second you looked as if you almost didn’t believe we would. I don’t see that look on your face too often.

Baby, please don’t stop dreaming because the road to Dreamville gets a little bumpy. I know it’s discouraging, believe me. I don’t always see the road we’ll take to get to where we want to go but I never stop believing there will be another road sign coming up to guide us. Just keep looking up the road with me, okay?

Back when we first fell in love, it was blissful and easy to sit back at the waterfront and talk about the size of our first house, what kinds of cars we’d drive, and where we’d spend our well-earned vacation days. Now that we’re working hard to make the things we dreamed up come to fruition those same tasks can seem more daunting than anything else – I get that. But here’s the thing; what I love most about us is that we have fun together and support each other no matter what kind of mess we’re in. No, our journey won’t always be sunshine and rainbows (this isn’t The Cosby Show), but loving you and sharing my life with you is sort of like wearing 3D glasses that add all sorts of special effects to our days together to make them more interesting and warm. You have a pair too! So put your glasses back on, and remember three things: You have a buddy (for life) in all of this, it will get better, and I forbid you to stop believing. Wife’s orders, okay? Great. Good talk. Love you always.

  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! It is important that we encourage each other. It is very timely for me because this is a very similar letter that I might write to my husband at this present time. Yes, there are bumps in the road, especially financial ones, but I believe it is an opportunity to reflect and remember what is important. So keep on believing, because dreams do come true!
    Wishing you a fabulous day!
