a love letter

IT IS NOW 1:30 AM, SUNDAY, 9/17/06

JIMMY WILL BE HOME, FOR GOOD TOMORROW..........ON MONDAY, 9/18/06

IT IS ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE.

WE SPOKE AS USUAL, MANY TIMES ON THE PHONE TODAY. 

WE FEEL THAT THROUGH THE YEARS OF JIMMY BEING IN PRISON, WE HAD IN SOME UNUSUAL WAY ALMOST PUT OURSELVES IN SOME DETACHED STATE OF MIND................ALMOST LIKE A TRANCE..........JUST SO WE CCOULD GET THROUGH IT

NOW, WE ARE BACK TO OUR NORMAL, USUAL SELVES.......

JIMMY SAYS HE ALMOST CAN'T BE.LIEVE THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY 3.6 YEARS OF BEING AWAY....................AS FOR ME, I TOLD HIM I REALLY DIDN;T WANT TO REMEMBER TOO MUCH ABOUT THE LAST 3.6 YEARS............I REALLY AM TRYING TO PUT THE PAST OUT OF MY MIND

WE ARE BOTH CALM AT THIS TIME...............

COMING HOME IS A NORMAL STATE AND IT IS NORMAL FOR JIMMY TO BE HERE.............THIS IS WHERE HE BELONGS.............THIS IS HIS HOME, AND WE ARE MARRIED, AND HAVE OUR 3 PETS..........WE HAVE A LOVING HOME......

I FEEL VERY PEACEFUL................HAPPY INSIDE AND OUT..........VERY CALM.

PEOPLE MAY SAY, "OH, IT IS A TIME TO CELEBRATE!".............

IN ONE WAY IT IS A CELEBRATION.BUT IN ANOTHER WAY, IT IS A NORMAL PHASE OF LIFE........................IT IS THE PASSAGE INTO THE NEXT ASPECT OF LIFE...

JIMMY AND I ARE INTENSELY IN LOVE, AND YET WE ARE ALSO ON AN EVEN KEEL.........................IN OUR LIFE, WE FOLLOW THE RULES, AND LIVE A GOOD CLEAN LIFE...........

AND SO, I ENJOYED MYSELF BY WASHING JIMMY'S CLOTHES TODAY!

STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM!

JIMMY HAS BOUGHT ALL HIS CLOTHES HOME,  HE USUALLY WASHES HIS OWN CLOTHES.  HOWEVER, TODAY I DID IT!................AND I JUST LOVED DOING IT!.................SEPERATING THE WHITES FROM THE COLOR CLOTHES................HIS PANTS FROM THE SHIRTS.................WHAT A JOY TO WASH YOUR HUSBAND'S CLOTHES!.............EVERYTHING IS NOW HANGING NEATLY IN THE CLOSET FOR HIM!...........................THE SIMPLE JOYS IN LIFE!...............

THANK YOU, DEAR LORD, FOR ALLOWING ME THE SIMPLE JOYS IN LIFE!

PEACE, BALANCE AND HARMONY.............THE 3 WORDS I ALWAYS LIKE TO SAY, AND THINK, INSIDE OF ME...........

I RECEIVED THIS BEAUTIFUL LOVE LETTERIN THE MAIL TODAY,  FROM JIMMY, AND I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE..................

 

MY DEAREST WIFE,

THE RAIN IS POUNDING HARD AGAINST MY WINDOW, THIS MIDNIGHT.  IN 8 HOURS I WILL BE HOME ON MY LAST FURLOUGH. I TINGLE WITH THE THOUGHT THAT I WILL SOON HOLD YOU.....KISS YOU.  YES, MY LITTLE ONE.  I WILL HAVE TO LEAVE YOU AT 8PM, BUT I WILL RETURN MONDAY MORNING.  AND I SWEAR THAT I WILL  NEVER BE PHYSICALLY APART FROM YOU AGAIN. 

MY LITTLE BRIDE...YOU HAVE SHOWN YOURSELF TO BE, OVER THE TIME OF MY INCARCERATION, THE BEST THAT A WIFE CAN POSSIBLY BE. 

I THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES  FOR LOVING ME.

I AM A BETTER MAN BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME.

MAYBE I REPEAT WHAT I SAY, HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF TIMES, BUT I HAVE NO OTHER WORDS.

I WAS TOLD, HOW GREAT YOUR LOVE IS. , AND HOW YOU MADE THE CHOICE TO BE WITH ME, BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME FREELY.......WILLING.,...............AND WHOLEFULLY. 

THAT I NEED NOT THANK YOU, FOR YOUR LOVE, AS IT IS A GIFT YOU GIVE TO ME WILLINGLY.

I AM A VERY LUCKY MAN.  NEVER DID I SEE MYSELF  DESERVING ANYONE LIKE YOU.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT LIFE TOGETHER..............LOTS OF FUN...........LOVE...................JOY......................AND WE WILL GIVE IT OUT TO THE WORLD!

YOUR LOVING SOULMATE AND HUSBAND,

JIMMY

 

GOOD NITE, EVERYONE, AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

             ....FRAN

Oh wow, i almost got teary eyed reading your post today. I can only imagine your joy and excitement. You 2 have been through so much. And i want to thank you for sharing your life with me/us for the past few years. Some days you shared very intimate thoughts, you shared your fears and hopes with us. Thank you for being unselfish with your feelings and your heart. You have helped me through hard times and didn't even know that you were doing that! This journal has reached many hearts. Thank you Fran.  I wish you two the best that this world has to offer.
May God Bless you both.
