I Finally Got A Letter!!!!!

I finally got a letter from my boy today!!  He's in Basic at Fort Knox, and I had gotten about 4 letters from him in the first week or so while he was still in processing, but after that I hadn't heard from him in about 3 weeks.  I was starting to get really discouraged because he had promised he would be good about writing to me while he was gone, and I had read other girls' stories saying that they had gotten lots of letters from their boyfriends.  But I checked the mailbox this morning and I HAD A LETTER!!!!!  It was a long one too, I was so excited!  It took him about 3 days to actually write it because I think he kept falling asleep because he was having to write it at night right before bed.  But he just kept saying how much he missed me, and couldn't wait to see me at his family weekend next month, and that he just wanted to be here with me, especially this weekend because it's Valentine's Day.  He said they're in the "red phase" of training and get pretty much no personal time, so I'm hoping it gets better and he gets more personal time as time goes on.  But I was so excited to finally get a letter from him, I hadn't gotten one since he actually started Basic.  I ran to my room as soon as I got the letter and read it over and over again.  It made me cry I was so happy.  He said that he was going to try as hard as he could to write me a letter every night...I hope this is true because it's so good to get letters from him.  Anyway, I just thought I'd share my excitement about finally getting a letter!  YAY!!!!!  I'm so happy right now!!!! :)
