A Love Letter To My Husband: From Aiyana To Ayize
Ayize doesn’t know I’m doing this but I just had to…. I was so inspired by a song I heard yesterday on one of my Facebook Friends pages. It just made me think about my relationship with my bestfriend, my boy, my confidante, my lover, my husband—Ayize Ma’at and I knew what I needed to do.
I’m taking the time today to make sure you know…… I want you to be ever so clear about the depth of my love for you and my commitment to you, our marriage, and our family. I need you to know the impact you’ve had on my life. Ayize, the love I have for you is overwhelming and indescribable. I heard a song yesterday by Kindred The Family Soul. It’s called “Stars” and I just “felt” it when I heard it. But, the reason I felt it baby is because of you. It’s because of you that the wounds that my “on again, off again” father left early on in my life haven’t stayed as deep and painful as they used to be. It’s because of you that today I can say that I honestly know what it feels like to trust someone completely. It’s because of your willingness to hold on tight and never let go that I know what commitment is really about in the first place. It’s because of your cool calmness that I have been able to really look at myself and learn new ways of being and communicating. It’s because of your ability to affirm me and allow me to be me that I have the self assured confidence that I have about myself….it’s because of you Ayize. When I begin to doubt myself and feel fear creeping up from behind I now know to deliberately stop whatever I’m doing, pause, and say to myself the words you first said to me “Just be”. It’s because you aren’t ashamed to say you love me, respect me, and see greatness in me that it makes it all the more easy for me to look at myself and find the greatness too. It’s because of your honesty with me…your willingness to call me out but then kiss me on the forehead or the nape of my neck that I have been able to learn how to accept and grow from criticism instead of letting it seep into my spirit and kill my self-esteem. It’s because of your vulnerability and your sharing your secrets with me that I feel and know that I’m important enough and worthy to be trusted. I love traveling life’s journey with you baby. So much of who I am today and have yet to be is because of you. Thank you King. I love you. Today. Tomorrow. Forever.
Here are the lyrics that inspired this letter. Listen to the song below.
Listen to the song below…
“We’ve come so far
Stars look up to you, baby
My heart belongs
Right here next to you, baby”
As always, leave a comment or submit a video response. Anyone out there inspired to do their own video love letter to their sweetie? Send it in and we’ll put it up! Here’s the song that inspired my love letter to my husband…..
This was perfect. Thank you for sharing with us. When a woman loves, she loves deeply. You are so lucky to have found that safe spce to love in your husband. He has done and is doing what every woman wants from her man…the ability to be weak,share our fear and know you will lead us the right way.
You both are amazing,
Awwwwwwwwww..is all I can say…Thank God for you two.
The two of you give me so much hope that my marriage will work and we will only get out what we put in! You two (and your children who are justtt beautiful) are nothing short of a blessing to us!
Girrrrl! THANK YOU so much for posting this song on your FB page….it really did it for me. And, thank you to everyone who appreciates me appreciating my husband. I just had to get that out and you know what they say—If you don't appreciate yours, there is always someone else who will! I thank God for working on me and in me to learn the lesson of appreciation and learn it well.
@Cynthia—"ugly cry" you are too funny! Thanks for the love sis!
.-= Aiyana Ma'at´s last blog ..A Love Letter To My Husband- From Aiyana To Ayize =-.
Now look, you got me doing the ugly cry down here. That was so touching, so intimate, I almost felt like I was peeping in on a private moment. Not only are men waiting to hear this from there women, but women are yearning to be treated so well, that they can say these words with ease to their men. Whatever you guys are doing, please continue to share with others so that we can all learn what true, intimate love looks like.
Well dang! You got everybody all emotional on a Thrusday. But it is funny because my husband and I have been married for almost 10 years (March 2011) and we go through this roller coaster of emotions, as all marriages do. But recently we have been giggling a lot together; love making a lot more often; talking about us or about nothing; and remembering what brought us together. So I think your timing is impeccable to challenge us to profess our LOVE! I LOVE ME SOME HIM (Toni Braxton). That's always been my song for my husband. Because when I look at him sometimes…even through his short comings and mine, I just love me some him! Ok for the second time this week you have inspired me to call my husband xoxxo
WOOOWWWWWWW is right!!!
I'm welled up over here too! Aiyana words can not describe what your inspiration to the "Sacred Song of th Day" compelled you to do means to me. This right here is EXACTLY why I do it. I choose "Stars" so it could be a reminder to set the atmosphere of romance in your marriage daily with exactly what you have shared with us today!
LOVE THIS!!!!!!! It is a true testament to what marriage is all about, can, & should be.
I pray this inspires other couples to do the same as you have been inspired!!
This is the type of expression of love that I believe every Husband awaits. Thanks Aiyana for not being scared to show that.
Wooowwwww!!!! You got me over hear all teary eyed and stuff. Stars look up to you too baby! I love you Queen. I love you Baby. I love you Sweetheart. I love you LOVE!
