hello. i haven't shared my story in this group yet, so i figured i would.. i met george last september at one of his high school soccer games. we started talking on the computer and on the phone once or twice a week. i really started to like him as more than a friend and we eventually started talking every night and started hanging out often. as time went on we both fell for eachother. we did everything together, everyday. not one day went by for 5 months that i didn't see him or talk to him. i knew he had signed up for the military and was scared for the day he would leave but was so proud of him to be doing something so great with his life! we unofficially dated for all of those months until he decided to make it official on the 4th of july (when he came on vacation with me a few days before he had to leave)
he is now at fort jackson, SC for his basic training and i miss him so much. as many of you would know, when your boyfriend leaves, it's SO hard and the change is so drastic. i still get stressed out/depressed about him being gone, but try to look on the positive side and think about seeing him soon and how proud i am of him! he's my baby and i know it's normal to be sad and to be anxious over everything but i am trying so hard to keep my head up and be okay. i have heard from him several times on the phone now :) how nice it has been to hear his beautiful voice.
and writing letters will start next week.. i'm thinking this could be fun! i am excited to write to him and grow closer from this whole experience. i hope that everything will work out and think of this as a challenge that will bring something great into our lives.
i think about him constantly and i know that will never go away, but thinking on the bright side can really make those tears stop for a little while. i trust in God through this all and cannot wait to see my boy and tell him how proud i am to have a united states army soldier as my boyfriend, and bestfriend. :)
