I Got the First Letter Today!
today marks the 12th day matt has been away in basic. he left june 10th for reception at fort sill and stayed there for basic. he actually didn't start basic until the 18th. but for a week while he was gone we got to talk and text each night until 9:30 which was nice then it stopped because they took their phones away. that was hard. i got a call on fathers day which was the 4th day we hadn't talked. i was so excited to hear his voice even though it was only a 5 minute phone call it was great! so today i went to check the mail and got a letter from him! the first. i think i cried for 20 minutes straight but it was a good cry! he called me the love of his life and all kinds of sweet stuff and said this seperation will only make us stronger and i believe him. i really underestimated the power of words and communication until now. just have faith ladies and good things come to those who wait! if anyone needs anything please let me know! we need to stick together as army girlfriends and by the way don't listen to people who say "You're not even married, this won't be that hard." because i have heard it over and over and they couldn't be more wrong!
