End of Heartache
Distance has never been a big deal between me and Eric. we've been together for about a year now and whole entire time our relationship was considered as long distance relationship. I was in Minnesota studying and He was in California working and doing army stuff. neither one of us had experience in distance relationship. we had our fair shares of arguments and tough times but made it through... Until last year winter rolled around. Eric was deployed to Kosovo last december. I know that there are other army girlfriends/wives out there who are in much tougher situation than I am. But it was still hard for me to handle what seemed like million miles. there was no way I could call him. I had to wait for him to call me and if I missed his call that was it. every day my heart tightened up in worries and I cried my self to sleep most of the nights. finally may came around for his leave and I got to spend blissful time with him for 10 days. I had to let him go just three days ago. I thought it might be easier for me to say good bye since I've done it before but It was tougher than before. because I knew how difficult this was going to be. we almost gave up and broke up along the way. every time I have to let him go I felt like I was going to lose him. my heart sank when I found out that he might have to go to Iraq. I wanted to just cry my eyes and give up but I realized that there are other women out there who are already going through this...I have so much respect for them. I know that we will all smile on that day...the day when our heartaches end. I am waiting for that day and I know that we can make it through. I hope to find encouragement and support in here. thank you for reading my story and everyone God bless!!!
