You know what's great about a deployment? You are reminded of what it's like to be crazy in love.
The above is a little something I made for my soldier last night before bed.
The below is the front of a Green Beans coffee sleeve that he saved from a COJ (cup of joe) he purchased in Bagram. He wrote a note on the back:).
The next photo is his latest to me.
He always draws a heart.
Yes, I am 38 and he is 42.
We have been in love since the ages of 19 & 23 ... and we still act like we just met.
Love and miss my soldier, but thankful for the sweetness of appreciation that we've come to find amidst difficulty of separation. I treasure every bit of it!
And I hope you are treasuring the gift of your marriages, too.
They will never be perfect, but they truly are gifts that none of us deserve.
If you haven't in a while, take a moment to remember what it was like when you first met.
Now do what you would have done then ...
If you do, you'll be blessed!
