I miss you lover!

I must admit that I have been staring at this screen for about 20 minutes wondering how to put into writing just how I feel about the man I love being at war. There really are no words for this, and I find more than anything that the intangibles hold the weight here. So...I'll fumble my way through as best I can to try and explain just what my man being at war has done to me.

Justin serves in the 3rd ID. He left on January 27, 2005 (um..the worst day ever)!! At 24 yrs old I thought that I had a handle on things....then Justin left and I realized that I had a handle on nothing.

Justin and I have not been together that long, but letting him go would be the most foolish thing I had ever done. So I embarked upon this huge journey, and I'm learning new things every day. I fell in love with him the moment I laid eyes on him.....I knew right there that I would give him everything, a soldier requires nothing less..

I think the most important thing is to understand that our men are at WAR.... Here we have the time to go crazy...think incessantly about our boys...be girls ha! There, all they can do is be soldiers. I've decided to not obsess over missing him but to be happy that I have him. He's in my thoughts always and I do my best to put a smile on his face. I'm just killing time until he comes home to me. These days are long but the weeks are shorter. My entire heart is in Iraq....tucked away with the bravest, funniest, most beautiful and biggest nerd I have ever met. That's all I got.... there's so much more that I can't even begin to explain. Good luck to whoever is reading this.
