How would you react if you wake up in the morning and notice that your husband is gone?
Although this seems like a bad scenario, a woman named Julia experienced this. Everything pointed out to an ordinary day as any other day, until something strange happened. When Julia woke up she noticed that her husband was not there. Then she remembered that his behavior has been quite strange over the last few months and that their relationship has changed a lot.
She got out of the bed and decided to do a spring-cleaning of the house. Then, she noticed a letter on the bedside table, a letter that her husband had written to her. Once she read the letter, Julia was unable to control herself!
This is what the letter said:
I write to you now while you are sleeping, just in case tomorrow it’s not me who wakes up beside you.
With these two – way trips, I am spending more and more time on the other side, and who knows? I’m afraid that I won’t come back from one trip.
Just in case tomorrow I am not able to understand what is happening to me. Just in case tomorrow I’m unable to tell you how much I admire and appreciate your integrity, that determination of yours to be by my side, trying to make me happy despite it all. As you always do.
Just in case tomorrow I am not aware anymore of what you do. When you stick up notes on the doors so that I don’t confuse the bathroom and kitchen. When you manage to make us laugh after I put my shoes on without socks. When you try to keep the conversation alive, although I get lost in every sentence. When you approach me discretely and whisper the name of one of our grandchildren in my ear. When you reply tenderly to one of the rage attacks I have, as if something inside me rebels against this thing that takes over me.
For these and many other things. Just in case tomorrow I don’t remember your name or mine.
Just in case tomorrow I can’t thank you.
Just in case tomorrow, Julia, I can’t tell you one last time, that I LOVE YOU.
This is amazing, isn’t it? Even though his forgetting has made Julia sad, these amazing words were pure expression of love and caring.
