My Best Friend

I met him in 5th grade, too long ago to remember the exact details. But I remember dating him off and on until 9th grade for some reason I didn't want to date him in high school. Maybe because I knew that high school can ruin a lot of things for some people. Especially a small one. My mother remembers me (and believing a 5th grade girl) coming home one day and telling her I was going to marry my now husband. We have been best friends since we met. I just knew that I was going to marry him. But I got scared the year we graduated high school. I had went off with a guy that I was dating and lost contact with my hubby. Later found out he had joined the military, I was crushed, thought that I would never see him again. Then in October of 03 I finally called his parents house and asked how to get a hold of him. It was sort of strange not talking to him for a year or so but it was the greatest conversation I have had in my life. It felt great to talk to him. He came home in Dec 03 for his Christmas leave, we got married and for two weeks I was the happiest I had been in a long, long time. Then he had to go back to the place he was stationed. I was crushed once again but this time I knew that I wouldn't lose him ever again. We are still married. He is still my best friend, I can make him giggle like the 5th grader I remember. We have a daughter now. Best child ever.It seems too good to be true sometimes. Like I am going to wake up and the life we have is just going to be a dream. But I wouldn't change it for anything.
