We're down to a little over a month until my boyfriend leaves for basics. I know deep in my heart that this isn't just "some fling." This is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, and you can say I'm too young to know that, but I know, in the deepest parts of me. I just know. I was having a conversation with him a few nights ago, and I asked how he knew we were going to make it, and asked if he was worried. He said, "I'm not worried at all. You are my back bone, my strength, my conscience, and my hope. My hope for a better me. I don't ever want to not have you in my life." The things like that mean so much, and I keep them locked in my mind for a time when I won't be able to hear him say such things. As I get closer to him leaving, I'm thankful to have this site, and I hope I can start connecting to some of you so I will have someone to turn to when times get tough! Love & Hugs!!
