An Open Letter To The Man-of-My-Dreams.


I'm sitting here at my desk kind-of teary-eyed because the 2nd of our two sons just moved out for the summer to work away from the farm. The Little-Foreman-in-Pink just informed me that she wanted to call 911 because her 11 yr old brother just hurt her feelings. And Otis the Killer Boston Terrier just puked in on the kitchen floor (but I'm pretending I didn't hear it in hopes someone else will stumble upon it first and clean it up).

As I look across the room and see you sitting in your chair looking at your laptop, all serious and sexy like, with your "Hubba-Hubba" glasses on and your freshly shaven head that longs to be touched. I can't help but be struck at how far we've come and how lucky I am.

When we met so many years ago playing a game online, I was lost. I didn't think there was a chance I could ever feel so loved... so cherished... so complete. I just figured I was one of those women who would go through her whole life without knowing what true, total, and complete love felt like. Boy did you prove me wrong!

We have become the family I could only dream about. Our kids are happy, and they are usually really good kids. We live in a house that's too small.... too full.... too old... and too broken, and I love it! I am so happy here on our very own little piece of Earth, no matter how loud & noisy & crowded it can sometimes be.

You have given me my farm.
You have given me my daughter!
You have given me everything I could ever ask for! (except for another donkey.. I'd really like another donkey ya know!)

I don't think I have told you enough how grateful I am for everything you have done for me. How proud I am to call you my husband, How thankful I am that you are the father, step or otherwise, to my children.

Who would have thought, that playing a game of backgammon online would have changed my life so completely.

I love you....

My husband, who is quite a bit like yours, and I met playing an online game too. It wasn't common back then and it definitely wasn't expected to work but we've been together twelve years now and married for ten of those. That's an accomplishment in this day and age.

I too have my farm and soon there will be animals here as well. He learned to shoot so I could have venison and wild game birds to eat.

We're both very, very lucky. It's just nice to see someone else say so.

Comments make me dance a little jig.
And that makes my children run and hide in shame.
