    Best Christmas Gift.. A Phone Call From My Sailor!! β™₯

    I miss my babe a whole lot.

    The tears just won't stop coming out. I love him and I just want one last hug. One last kiss. One last moment with him. I must be patient, I know, but it is hard to be patient when your heart is exploding. My heart literally hurts. I'm struggling. 56 more days to go.

    I miss my sailor. Today was a hard day

    but I don't like telling him because I know he had it harder and I don't want to make him feel bad. I already know it was hard on him having to leave so I don't want to make it harder on him by telling him I wish he was here to comfort me. Ugh. Girls what do you do in these...
