Ding!! You’ve Got Mail…♥ notes…

Wow!  What a week…and it’s only Tuesday!  Yesterday flowers…today chocolates…then I get the best gift of all a love note…via email.

What a long but “sweet filled” day….only to get home to the beautiful sound, “You’ve Got Mail”…as much as I have enjoyed receiving my gifts lately – flowers, chocolates…the best one received is the most valuable present and it lasts a lifetime….I find it extremely romantic to receive a love note via email, card, letter.  This special man is putting the past men in my life to shame.   And I am enjoying every single second.

Long overdue….

I have been very fortunate to receive and write plenty of emotional letters. Not only from lovers but also from my brother, and even friends.  I have a box with all my letters…I like to re-read them.  Reading my letters reminds me of times of happiness, sadness, joy, and important events in my life. Reading a letter is like seeing yourself through the eyes of others.   Modern technologies are great for keeping in touch with people, but they can be so detached, especially text messages with its many acronyms, short cuts, and lack of tone….but a love note…if written with care, can make me swoon, melt…

With a few strokes of the keyboard, and weeks of emailing, one day — you can wake up falling in love with the other person!    Written words can be powerful.  I am always saying that actions speak louder than words…and taking the time to write a love note is an action that can hold this incredible power of sharing adoring, endearing and affectionate words…ah –  love letters.  If we lived in a different era, these words would have been shared entirely in handwritten letters.   Today our correspondence, in this age of AOL, GMail, Google+, email rules.  I am going to consider these email messages  as “love letters” because they are no less romantic, thoughtful than letters sent by regular snail mail, stamped postage.

How many of you have seen the movie, “Moonlight Mile”?  Or, “The Love Letter”?  Or “Nights in Rodanthe”?  Any Nicholas Sparks movie / book!   How about the movie, “Sex and the City” where Carrie guesses the password finally and finds that Big has re-written numerous love letters by poets, and one from himself promising to love her forever??  Swoon…♥

Have you ever received a love note from someone you adored? Didn’t it just make you feel amazingly special? Receiving a love letter brings a rush; opening love letters opens the heart; reading love letters awakens our spirit.  Sometimes they can be bittersweet.  But such a huge compliment.

Love notes tell us we are someone who is seen, longed for and adored. Love letters tell us we are someone who is worth being romanced. How can the heart not spill over with the joy of being known, recognized and pursued? It’s what our feminine heart really longs for, isn’t it?

They hold a special power to transform us, to lift our mood.  Changes me from an ordinary person to a woman who is special to someone. Wow!  Me? Worthy of being pursued? Wanted!? Desired!? Beautiful!?   Yay!  I am going to read and re-read each email several times to let this new image of  me sink in.  Pure bliss…magical…words transform!   Through the words of each love note I came to know myself as a woman who is adored, desired, worthy, loved and longed for….So in a very poetic and mysterious way, flesh became word via passionate typing.   Who knew?!  ♥

Words from “The Love Letter” –

Text of the letter: Dearest, Do you know how much in love with you I am? Did I trip? Did I stumble – lose my balance, graze my knee, graze my heart? I know I’m in love when I see you. I know when I long to see you, I’m on fire. Not a muscle has moved. Leaves hang unruffled by any breeze. The air is still. I have fallen in love without taking a step. You are all wrong for me and I know it, but I can no longer care for my thoughts unless they are thoughts of you. When I am close to you, I feel your hair brush my cheek when it does not. I look away from you sometimes, then I look back. When I tie my shoes, when I peel an orange, when I drive my car, when I lie down each night without you, I remain,
Text of the letter: Yours

Ah…romance…viva amor…♥


Longing for Romance…

Sitting here at work, counting down the minutes to when I can go home.  I am supposed to go on a date – but have been wary lately of dating.  I tend to date very selfish men because of my very giving nature and I am tired of being anyone’s doormat.

I long for romance though.  I never intended this blog to be about dating, relationship problems or a living with cancer blog – but I guess all of those define me right now…so this is my space for venting, wishing, dreaming…about a life full of love, cancer free and just easy breezy carefree smiling.  A girl can dream… 🙂

Some people compartmentalize their cancer experience and not think about it again. That doesn’t work well for me these days. Like it or not, cancer is part of my life, so I feel the need to share it.
And having had cancer is not all bad. People who have been through serious illness don’t take much for granted.  I know – trust me.  I am grateful for every little second.  I forgive quickly, move forward quickly.

But in this world where everyone is in a rush, people don’t take the time for true old-fashioned romance.  I long for days of yesterdays where texting ILU didn’t replace sweet gestures.  I am looking for someone who understands that romance doesn’t end or start in the bedroom, or reserved for special anniversaries.

When I find a man who know s how to move me with his words, thoughts  then I will have Saturday nights filled with romance….like I already said a girl can dream…

Famous Love Letters: Ludwig von Beethoven:

My angel, my all, my very self

We shall surely see each other soon; moreover, today I cannot share with you the thoughts I have had during these last few days touching my own life –

If our hearts were always close together, I would have none of these.

My heart is full of so many things to say to you – ah – there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all –Cheer up – remain my true, my only treasure, my all as I am yours.

Ah, wherever I am, there you are also –

Much as you love me – I love you more –

Oh God – so near! so far!

Is not our love truly a heavenly structure, and also as firm as the vault of heaven?

my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us –

I can live only wholly with you or not at all –

No one else can ever possess my heart – never – never –

Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves.

Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together –

Be calm – love me – today – yesterday – what tearful longings for you – you – you – my life – my all – farewell.

Oh continue to love me – never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine

ever mine

ever ours

Your faithful Ludwig

Famous Love Letters: Napoleon Bonaparte:

I wake filled with thoughts of you. Your portrait and the intoxicating evening which we spent yesterday have left my senses in turmoil.

Sweet incomparable Josephine, what a strange effect you have on my heart!

Yielding to the profound feelings which overwhelm me, I draw from your lips, from your heart a love which consumes me with fire?

Until then, mio dolce amor, a thousand kisses; but give me none in return, for they set my blood on fire.
