I Am In Love With Another Man…

(originally posted December 30, 2008)

…Don't worry my husband knows. 

 If you have read about this man, their marriage, their love maybe you have fallen a little for him (and her too). 

Anytime a man writes a beautiful love note to his wife and a gun is not pointed at his head… women are going to swoon. 

The man I am referring to is Christian Nielson.

  Awhile back I read the notes that his wife Stephanie had posted on her blog(re posted recently by her sister Cortney). 

 If you have been under a rock and have not heard their amazing story please do. 

So..back to the letters. 

The letters that I wanted my husband to read. 

 The letters that I even hoped he would photocopy and sign his own name to. 

The letters that women always get at the beginning of relationships or on special occasions….not in the middle of any old week.

  He was gone for a few days and missing her.

  I am in love. 

 Ok..I know many other thousands of women love him too. 

 The truth is I also love Stephanie and I will never meet her.

  Isn't it amazing? 

 We can LOVE people we don't even really know!!

Their story and love affair with each other is truly one of the most beautiful stories I have ever known. 

 I can't wait to hear about their next chapter and if we are lucky enough..maybe she will share more of those love letters!

    This family is sooo beautiful! I too will never meet them but read about them each and every day and feel as if I know them!

    i am in love, too, and my husband does not know the extent of it.=) they have been a blessing and joy to “know” throughout these last four months that i have known part of their story. don’t hold it back any longer; you need to let them know your feelings, jeanne!=)

    I have been in love with couple too when I came across them last year after their accident. They are truly some of the sweetest people ever. I told my hubby about those letters but perhaps I should make him read them too;) My heart aches for Stephanie when she talks about her children and the healing that she is going through. I hope that if faced with anything trying I am able to have the strenghth and faith that she does. It is amazing the bond we can make with people we have never met. One of the many reasons I am so glad to be a part of the blogging community.

    This Ozark country chick now has the irresistible urge to dig way back in the closet and pull out the big bag of love letters hubby wrote during our engagement. Because of this, I know he is not illiterate in such activities yet after the I do….he don’t!!! Memories, gotta’ love them. Ya’ll have a wonderfully blessed summer day.

    I have always admired their love for one another.
    I keep one of John’s love letters in my wallet at all times. It just reminds me of how it really is…love comes from the heart.

    Those letters are so touching. Every time I visit her blog I tear up. They really are two amazing people.

    I find myself thinking if I was as wonderful as Stephanie perhaps I would receive such love letters as well. I LOVE their family!!!
