Getting in the spirit.

February 13, 2011

Getting in the spirit for Valentines Day, I thought I'd post a simple love letter from Woodrow Wilson, it's amazing what one letter can say, and the impact is has on someone. In a post a lonngg time ago, I talked about the power of the written word, and after blog-stalking one of my favs, I found this little beauty. 
The White House, September 19, 1915
My Noble, comparable Edith. 
I do not know how to express or analyze the conflicting emotions that have surged like a storm through my heart all night long. I only know that first and foremost in all my thoughts has been the glorious confirmation you gave me last night -  without effort, unconsciously, as of course - of all I have even thought of your mind and heart. 
You have the greatest soul, the noblest nature, the sweetest, most loving heart I have ever known, and my love, my reverence, my admiration for you, you have increased in one evening as I should have thought only a lifetime of intimate, loving association could have increased them. 
You are more wonderful and lovely in my eyes than you ever were before; and my pride and joy and gratitude that you should love me with such a perfect love are beyond all expression, except in some great poem which I cannot write. 
You own, Woodrow
Happy (pre) Valentines Day everyone :) Don't forget to tell the ones you love, you love them.
