    So, my sailor gave some not great news a few

    days ago. He wasn't able to class up with his friends in A-school because the classes filled up before they got to him. Now he has to stay an extra 2 weeks in school. I realize that 2 weeks isn't that long, but it feels like forever when I'm just waiting for him to come home...

    I am overwhelmed with gratitude

    for the sailor in my life. Being with a guy in the military was the last thing I thought I would ever do... In fact, I had told God many times that I refused to accept that kind of challenge. Funny how God has a sense of humor. Not only is my man in the navy, he also lives 24...

    Acceptance

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    each other. We got to Skype tonight and he introduced me to his bunk mate, who then asked how far I was. I’m in California and my sailor is in South Carolina, and when his bunk mate heard that he said, “Oh wow, you guys really are long distance huh, cross country damn.” My...
