My Best Friend........

Unlike most girls in this group I'm not a grilfriend to my Marine. I'm the best friend. The one all the secrets get told to, laughs get shared and future is explained to. We have been throught thick and thin in the past 9 years. We've been friends, more than friend, then back to freinds that really care for each other. My heart will forever have a place for him. He's always been the one to make you happy when your sad, hug you when you dont expect it, and say the sweetest things. He's also one to have your back when shyt hits the fan. He maybe tiny but his heart is hugh.

About a month ago i got a text message saying he just joined the Marines. I flipped out on him. I was selfish and angry with him. Why now? What made him actually go for it?? Our Senior year he talked about it then back down. Then out the blue hes singed up?? To make matters worse all i hear about is trouble for our troops. I turn on the news and bam its in my face. I fear thats where hes going to end up. I know tons of you  have your guy out there and he isnt even my guy but i cant help but worry about him.

When it was Jarid i was incontrol of myself but wit him is different. With Jarid i was ok with letting go for him to do his navy thing. I knew wat was going to happen and how the Navy worked. I loved Jarid and couldn't stop it because it was to late by the tim i met him he was already set for boot camp. But this Marine I'm not reay for him to leave this month. I'm not ready for him to leave ever. I knew him years before the sign up i could of prevented it some how put it off longer. He's been my strong side most of the time. The reason i pushed so hard for everything. He didnt have to speak a work or give me a look all i had to do was see his face and i knew i wouldn't give in. with out him here it will be different. I'm use to getting a late nite call or text. Hearing stories from our friends of him out. Now he wont be near.........

I love this guy not like i love my husband but i still love him. My heart has had a place for him since 6th grade. The first day i saw him lol i couldnt help but think "awww shaa hes soo tiny and cute but holds his own" lmao he'd kill me if he knew thats what i thought. But hes not that littel kid i met back in 6th grade. Hes grown in to a man over the years. Hes strong, will strong, loving, caring, joyful, hard, everything wrapped up. I'd have to say he stand at the top of my list somewhere around my husband my bubba and my father. Things for us in the past 2 to 3 years has been hard. We've fussed we've fight. We've gone months with out talking. Been mean to the bone to each other but we've come out on top of it. People don't get our friendship dont get how we work together. How we can still stand after being knocked down time and time again for standing together. Our families hate each other and us. We've been threatened to be disowned for our friendship but still we stand....

I know he will make a great Marine and he's following his heart. Hes got the mind set for this. He believes in himself and that is what will get him through this. I believe in him but still i dont want him to go. Yes I'm being selfish i know but i cant help it....

I warned him about military relationship, how hard it is and what he can expect for the girl to feel. I tell him over and over trust is a big factor. That time apart will make it hard but if its meant to be it will make it. I tell him not to forget that hes not the only one hurting while away that she will hurt and cry and wonder if its right. I know i did when it came to me and Jarid but after his first trip home it never came back in to mind. I told him not to listen to what the other guys will say about wat his chick is doing back home. Not to freak out on her. And dont control her from miles away to just trust her....

I've told him not to forget the friends that mattered when he was home. That when he gets back if he has a gril its her and his family frist then come the friends. Dont get agg. when you cant see ppl once your home or that things have changed since he left. I told him to have the energy to listen to his friend ramble about shyt that wont matter to him because most of the time when he gets home all he'll talk about is military shyt cuz thats all hes been around for months.....

I told him to have fun and explore this world called the military. To take the advantages he is being handed. I told him to be safe, To protect himself. I told him i was proud and joyful. Proud of him makeing a future getting out of troulbe and making something of him self. Joyful that while hes making something of him hes taking me along through letters stories and friendship. I told him i loved him more than words could explain and that no matter what i'd still be standing tall cheering him on. .........
