May I never Forget

This deployment is slowly but surely coming to an end. Next month Matt will finally be home after being gone over a year. I am getting so excited! I'm starting to think back at all the things I have learned from all this & the major thing is gratitude. I really took alot for granted while he was here. From having him beside me to him taking out the trash but honestly I never want to forget this feeling of missing him. It has been pure hell without him & I have hated every second but it sure does make you appreciate things so much more. I never want to take for granted those little things. Like him getting mad at not finding something & swearing I threw it away. LoL! I miss that. I never want to forget waking up alone & reaching out to him & him not there. I not only appreciate him as a person more but our love. For that I am thankful. In life we need to try to take something from every experience we have. Good or bad. From this I'm taking gratitude. May I never forget.

I agree. It's amazing at how much you can learn in a year's time. It's almost over and I hope and pray we all never forget the past year so we'll never take for granted the wonderful little things of our lives together with the men we love.
