I Know That Dreams Can Come True.

Dreams really do come true, I waited twenty three years before I knew for certain that dreams can be reality. My boyfriend is the light of my life. We've known each other our entire lives, and have ALWAYS loved each other. He is five years younger than me so it made a relationship impossible, and illegal, up until I recieved an invitation to his birthday/going away/graduation party. I hadn't seen or talked to him in a long while other than via the "all the fad" social networks, and then one day an opportunity for a party, which I never turn down, fell into my lap.

I text him and asked if they needed any help setting up the party and when the party was exactly, because on the invitation his mother had left off the date and merely put Saturday at 2:00. From the moment he responded to my text we were inseperable. Everything seems so so so right with him, as if it's just the way things are suppose to be. I found my soulmate, I found motivation, love, compassion, honesty, my rock and my bestfriend...funny thing is he'd been in my life since he was born.

It's hard dating a marine. It's at times unbearable and all you can do is cling to your family and friends, or his family and friends. As the girlfriend, fiance, or wife of a marine you go through things you never thought you'd have to. Your experience of his being away is harder than it is on anyone. I'm not taking credit away from mothers or sisters or anyone for that matter, but the love that a marine and his lady feel is the most powerful thing I have ever experienced in my life and when you seperate lovers anything can happen. Sometimes I'll catch a random scent of him, sometimes I'll feel his arms around me, and the dreams I have are so emotional and so real I wake feeling as if I never slept.

Stay strong and stay proud. That is my moto. I take it all one day at a time and everytime I write him I feel closer to him. Being a marine girlfriend is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but it's necessary that we, the ones waiting at home, are just as tough as the men we are waiting on.

My boyfriend left for bootcamp on June 22nd at 2:45 PM. I have written him everyday including the day before he left. I have recieved four letters and in them proof of his love floats from the pages and envelopes me as if he were there saying the words to me. My last letter said "If I could tell you I love you 1,000 times in every language it wouldn't be enough." That's what keeps me happy, faithful, and totally in love. I wait patiently because I have no other choice, I am his rock and he is my everything.
