30 years, another letter

I adore my husband. Last year, he wrote me a letter that brings me to tears each time I read it. Well, he did it again. He also bought me assorted kitchen “stuff”, including the Le Creuset pot I’ve coveted for a long time.

Mrs. Hope,

Happy 27th birthday. Ok. It’s my fault. I jinxed us. Last year I finished my letter with “This will be your year.” I’m not sure what I was thinking, but I won’t make the same mistake twice. I’ll leave the predictions out of this one.

I need to add to the list of things I would like to thank you for. I believe last year I mentioned tests, probes, charts, shots, and research. That list seems paltry compared to this year’s. More research, more probes, lots of stomach shots, dozens of ass shots, liters of blood drawn, chemotherapy drugs, cervical dilations, retrievals, transfers, hot flashes, paper cuts, and working the night shift at a crappy job just so we don’t have to pay out-of-pocket any longer. I think I’d have to take my vitamin for the next 10,000 years to make us even. Thank you.

A couple of other things. I am really proud of you for doing the newspaper article. I’m really looking forward to having you home in the evenings again. I miss spending time with you. Thank you for marrying me and continuing to love me.

I know you really want this to work. I promise to do everything I can to make that happen. I hope you have a really good birthday. I love you.


Mr. Hope

  1. Happy birthday.

    What a lovely letter!

    May your dreams come true, soon.

  2. I was so excited to turn 30 because I was optimistic about IF treatment (chortle, guffaw). Really, despite all the crap, my 30’s are definitely better than my 20’s.

    HAVE FUN WITH YOUR LE CREUSET POT!! I love those things. Someday I want the entire collection. The whole colorful shebang.

    Welcome to the club. Happy Birthday. May your wishes and dreams come true.

  3. Ahhh.. your husband is a definite keeper! Happy Birthday and I agree with Spanglish, my 30’s have been better than my 20’s despite the infertility.

  4. Mrs. Hope,
    What a beautiful letter. Thank you for sharing it. What a wonderful man you have. I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

  5. Oh Mrs. Hope, Happiest birthday wishes! Your counterpart is one to keep for sure. And one way or another, I really hope that 30 does end up being your year. One way or another…(but hopefully the one and not the other).

  6. OMG what a fantastic letter! Can we clone him?

    The happiest of birthdays to you.

  7. What a wonderful letter. So cool that your husband does that.

    Happy Birthday.

  8. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Hope! (belated) May you get your heart’s desire, and may you leave your waiting days behind!
