Dear Time, SLOW DOWN!!!

The first day I met you I developed a mini crush very suddenly. I thought you were cute and you seemed nice but you didn't really talk to me. Little did I know that was the beginning of something absolutely breath taking and soon I will be your wife. Today I have thought a lot about being your fiance' and it finally sank in. I am going to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing man in the whole universe and I am so lucky. I am finally in that stage in our engagement where it has hit me head on and it makes me so happy to finally be here. For the first 2 weeks (or so) all I could think about was planning our wedding and finally my mind is clear and though I have been so happy to be your future wife, today the happiness is overwhelming.

For almost 2 years I had you as my best friend. You were there for me when I was at my worst and I have never been able to come up with the words to thank you for that. I'm sure it goes without saying that I am forever grateful to you for everything you have done.

Our life together started the day after Christmas last year and it was the best present I got. Now we are coming up to that 6 month mark and shortly after that we will have a new anneversary. Then shortly after that you leave and you take my whole heart with you. Time is flying and I haven't gotten the chance to even say hi to time before I am already having to say goodbye to it. If time slows down just a little bit so that I can enjoy what little bit I have left with you, it will make me the happiest woman alive.

I'm not ready for you to be gone for 6 + months but I will wait for you no matter what it takes. Watching the ship pull in and you come off it and into my arms makes that whole 6 months worth every bit of stress, every tear and every heartbreak.

Basically what I am getting at is, this is beautiful. Nothing in my life makes more sense then you and me.

I totally understand what you're talking about,it doesn't matter where we came from, all our stories (as navy gf or wives) have much in common. I'm newlywed and soon my hubby is going to be out for 8 months so I'm with you. DEAR TIME slow down a little bit!!!

Thanks! It's a tough world but the men and women of our armed forces need someone to love them too. That's what were here for eh? I can't wait to spend forever with mine!
