Young Love

I met my Sailor when we were both in high school-- I was a sophmore and he was a senior. That year changed my life as he decided to join the Navy in stead of go to college when he graduated. I couldn't explain to him how proud I was of the path he chose. At first it was tough to go from seeing my best friend everyday, to not even a phone call. As Basic Training and his ASchool came to a close and then he then got stationed only 6 hours away from where I live, I was filled with hope! He has already come home once from the three months he's been on his ship and I can't say enough how happy I get just to see his smile again.
We have been together for almost 2 years now as I'm coming to be an upcoming senior in high school. Though we have a two year age difference, I feel like we have accomplished alot. He needs my strength and support now more than ever and that's just what I'm doing! The exciting thing is that I get to go up to see him with his mom in two weeks for a weekend to spend time with him and celebrate our two year anniversary!! :) God has truely answered many of our prayers and I know He will continue to bless our relationship as we both know it will only get tougher. God bless!
