A Bittersweet Day

My boyfriend is in the marines and stationed in Hawaii so I was pretty upset when I was forced to spend my first valentines day with my boyfriend, without my boyfriend. On Valentines Day I got a phone call from my boss to inform me that I had received a package. I immediately went in. It was a brown box.  When I opened it, the first thing I noticed was that it smelled like him, which was the best surpise of all. Inside the package was a book of questions about ourselves that we had been filling out. Also inside were two letters; one that I had to read before I opened the main gift, and one for after. In the first letter he tells me how much he loves me and how sorry he is that we arent able to spend the day together. So I open this gift and its an engagement ring! I freaked out. So I open the second letter and it informs me that it in fact isnt an egagement ring, but a promise ring. He wanted to be able to talk to my dad before he asks me to marry him. The ring is beautiful, and thats not all. He also sent me his dog tags, which really meant alot to me. I texted him as soon as I got my gift and he in turn sent back a video on my cellphone of him giving me my ring. It was the best and worst valentines day ever!
