I'll just have to try to keep myself entertained during off time, though I really wish that I could be using that time for speaking with her. It's hard enough for me to sleep without her by my side... even harder when I can't even hear her voice before I drift off to sleep.
I can only pray that anyone who is in love as deeply with their spouse as I am with mine, that they will never have to go through this.
I told my father about a week ago that I was re-enlisting for both mine and her sake. He was displeased... his exact words were, "son, you joined the Army to go to college, not to get married."
Father, you were right, but sometimes, things don't go as planned. I never imagined when I was signing those papers, that it would lead to my eventually meeting the woman of my dreams, then getting to marry her.
I simply hope that these next few days go by fairly quickly, that I may speak to my wife again.
dv8dragonfly, I love you, and I always will... past forever.
