To my Marine lovin girlies, thank you all for your support and adive, telling me to keep busy has definitely helped!! Love you all<333 And I'm praying for all your boys.
As I looked around the airport this morning, I couldn't help but cry. Mothers were crying as fathers held back. Brothers and sisters hugging one last time. The wives of these men have seen them go before and each time just praying that they return home. I looked him in the eyes, trying hard to keep a smile. I wanted his last image of me to be smiling without a tear in my eye. But I'm not that strong and through our smiles and laughs, my eyes began to water, my voice began to shake, I trembled as he held me close.
"Come home soon" I whispered.
"Anything for you baby. But don't worry about me, have fun this summer and when August comes, try not to forget me when you move on to college."
"That's not even funny, I love you more than I will ever love anyone and I'd come with you today if I could."
With a slight chuckle he said, "There's no way in hell I'd let you come. I know you're safe here and there's where I want you." Then he wiped a tear from my face and held me tighter then ever before.
Oh my god, I miss him soooo much.
"Honey, you're shaking."
"Kie, look me in the eyes. I've already told you, don't worry about me. I'll take care of myself and be home soon. Now, you need to take care of yourself too and just remember that you are the love of my life."
I am SUCH a wimp =(
