    Dear Civilian Girl . . .

    Dear civilian girl, You complain that your boyfriend has worked late all week and have barely seen him. -I look forward to the two weeks a year we spend together. You complain because he doesn't call you enough. -My heart is thankful for the 15 second phone call I got last...

    Got two more letters from my boyfriend today!

    I had a huge smile on my face as I was reading the letters. He told me he thinks about me every night, until he falls asleep. He also wants me to write him tons! (Which I am) I've written seven so far and he's only been gone two weeks. He's met a lot of new and interesting...

    He got to call me again this week!

    I was literally in and out of sleep all night last night because I was scared I would miss his call if he did. I was kinda bummed because it was already 3 PM & he called at 7 AM last Saturday.. And as I was getting ready for work that same number flashed on my screen and I...

    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...

    I want to show you why you can get through this. Why it is worth it. Just based on the reassurance to all the insecurities I had, which Mathew was able to tell me once he was in A School and had some time to loosen up and start really talking.   I know you're hurting...

    Sometimes, I Wonder...

    Girls, please don't give up on your guy.

    It will get easier, I promise. He needs you now more than ever. If you truly love him and believe he is the one for you, it will be worth it in the end. If you haven't heard from him, don't worry. That doesn't mean anything. Just keep hanging in there <3
