I’d like to share with you the story behind a great love letter/song today. John Denver and his wife Annie had just come through a pretty intense time in their married life. On the other side of this rough patch in their marriage, John Denver went skiing one morning, and as he got off the ski lift and skied down the Rocky mountains, his senses were lifted by the beauty and magnificence of the mountains he loved. He was filled with a feeling of extreme love and happiness for his wife Annie, and went home and penned the lyrics to this love letter to her in a matter of a few minutes and then set it to music.
Never underestimate the power of a good love letter to restore a relationship.
