I Cried.....

How am I suppose to react to this I told him not to be scared and stuff but it worries me everyday about these things he scared me when he said this because I started thinking about what he said about him getting bombed or getting kidnapped :( I dont know what to think or feel right now... hes suppose to be the strong soildier and though I expect him to be scared over there anyone would I didnt think he would tell me this....

Angel,

I was thinking today, and I realized something. I am scared being here in Iraq, truly I am. I haven't told anyone that before because I thought they would think me a ***** or not fit to be here. I am scared everyday that I could be kidnapped by some IA, or mortars would come in and hit our sleeping area, most of all I am scared that I might not be able to make it home to you my love. I'm not trying to make you even more worried about me angel, it's just that I know I can trust you and I am trying so hard to work on communication with you. I don't want to lose you, not now, not ever. You are always on my mind, I still turn pale when you are near, and I am always lost in your eyes. I was so scared when I tried to lay down a little earlier that I cried, I wanted you near me soo much, your sweatshirt became like a towel lol. I Love You always and forever angel, with all my soul.

Your Loving and Adoring Husband

wow, i let a few tears out reading that. you know, i disagree with the idea that showing emotion somehow means you're weak. bravery isn't the absence of fear, it's doing what needs to be done despite the fear. when he opens up to you like he is, it means he is man enough to let his feelings show, and that makes him stronger it also makes him smarter. you can trust that he won't race into anything stupid when he's got his head on right. keep your head up, he will come home to you.

omg....that made me cry. My boyfriend is over there too, but he wont open up to me like that, like he has to be all strong and macho.....kudos to your man for sharing that, I couldnt even imagine being where they are...if they arent scared, well something is wrong with them. Stay strong......he will come back to you
