I Cry Every Time He Has To Leave....

You'd think by this point I would be so used to my husband leaving that it wouldn't phase me but it still moves me to tears.

Matt and I met last September and after 4 days of knowing each other and spending less than 5 hours together he left for a month. Over that month we talked as often as we could and we never seemed to run out of things to talk about. Once he came home from Yuma we spent every night together and it just went without saying that we were together. I did finally make a joke out of it and on Friday the 13 of November Matt asked me to officially be his girlfriend. By this point I was head over heels in love with him and I knew that I couldn't live without him. For Thanksgiving Matt left for his parents house in PA and I was really sad that I didn't even get to take him to the airport. I just sat in my room and cried. I knew it was only for a week but It just sucked that I was finally getting close to him and he was leaving. I picked him up from the airport after a week and we picked up where we left off. Since then he was gone for a few days here and there leading up to Christmas when he left for 2 weeks, a week in January, a week in February and in the middle of February he left for a month. In the midst of him being gone we ran off to vegas in January to get married!

I woke up with him at 3am on the day he had to leave and drove with him the 45 minutes to base. He stopped and dropped some stuff off at his truck, then to the barracks, then to put gas in the car so I could drive back home... Then the hard part, I had to drop him off at the armory. We got out of the car and said our good byes and I got in the car and drove away, just to stop about a mile down the road to ball my eyes out. My husband is my best friend and it kills me every time he has to leave.

We have 3 years left with the military, I know it isn't forever but some days it feels like it is.

You are so incredibly lucky to have someone you feel so strongly about to love. Just try to keep in mind it's not forever :) You guys are cute lol....
