Missing Him

Ive known my marine since I was 6 years old. He told me I sounded like a boy. He's actually my best friends cousin, which is how we met. He was at Camp Johnson in North Carolina going to his MOS school, and he came home one weekend and one thing led to another and we just clicked. we became boyfriend and girlfriend, and I was so happy. we started talking about spending forever together, just casually talking about it at first, but then we got to be serious, He was waiting to see where his permanent duty station was going to be, and if he go to stay in North Carolina I was gonna go be with him, and go to schoool up there. but Then I got the bad news, He was being stationed in Okinawa. and he wasn't coming home for 5 months. I was so scared. I didnt know if i was gonna be able to talk to him or anything, I didnt know if i could handle not being able see him for that long. Becasue even with him in North Carolina, and me in Alabama, I still saw him at least once a month... So he came home for 21 days before he left, we spent every waking minute together, and even some not awake. haha and about 5 days before he left he took me to the nicest restraunt, got down on one knee and said "will you marry me" and i said yes! and everyone started clapping, it was the most amazing moment of my life. I was sooo happy. but Im 18, I didnt get any support from anyone on this. everyone thought I was throwing my life away for some boy. but Im not. I don't feel that I am at all. Its my my life, and I can't wait to spend it with him. Im going to stay with him this summer in Okinawa, and then when he comes home for good, were going to get married. JUNE BRIDE 2011. Im so excited! I miss him so much. It really sucks to go from seeing him everyday, to just hearing his voice on the phone at odd hours of the night...
