Six years ago, we decided ‘hey, let’s do life together.’
We went through more than most and not nearly as much as others. We are that in-between, damn we really did make it through, kind of couple. Our story so far is pretty complex but still sweetly simple. An [unplanned] Earth Angel was born, cancer and chemo, financial Hell, an out of state move, and deployment. We are only in the beginning stages of the latter.
Your 4th deployment, my 1st. Never has my heart experienced this type of change. It’s another unknown for me, and I’m having my moments… My panic attack moments (thankful they are only at night). My acceptance moments (especially of this new phrase I say more often “on my own”). And my breakdown moments (from just missing you).
But I am okay. With all of that. Because of moments like this. When it’s our sixth anniversary and I come home to a delivery of stunning flowers with an adoring note. A Love like ours will never dwindle.
