A couple of years ago I was getting a manicure. The cute Vietnamese girl who was doing my nails (I'll call her Suzie) told me a beautiful story of the love between her grandmother and grandfather.
Her grandparents were inseparable and had been since the day they got married. One day, Suzie's grandfather, who had not been well, got news from his doctor that he had cancer. He had no idea how long he had to live but knew the separation his wife must endure would be very hard.
He decided to write her a secret love letter every day he had remaining to him, telling her how he felt about her, hide them away and upon his death, his beloved wife would have a new letter to read each day, almost as though he were still there.
He ended up living about 15 more years but each day, as he vowed to himself, he wrote a love letter to his wife, telling her of his deep love for her. By the time he passed away, you can imagine how many letters there were. They filled a large box and were packed tightly together. There were over 5,000 of them.
After Suzie's grandfather died, she and her siblings presented the box to their grieving grandmother. She was overcome.
At his funeral, she placed a love letter she had written to him tenderly in his coffin before it was closed.
Deep, romantic love can last a lifetime; even beyond. Don't believe that it can't. It does. Fascinating Womanhood can help you learn the secrets of helping this to be a reality for you.
