Lucky

"How lucky I am to have something that makes it so hard to say goodbye."
-Annie (the movie)

When I think Valentine's Day, I think of how many of them I've spent alone. It isn't a romantic thought, but there is nothing quite so difficult as to see so many happy couples and wonder if your partner is safe halfway across the world. While others take their lovers to bed, I go to bed with something of his, and a laptop and phone - just in case he calls. But how lucky am I that he is something worth longing for, loving, loyal to his country, and a commitment to protect it despite the costs?

  1. This photo is so romantic, a little sad, but you're right to feel grateful to have something so good to miss and to welcome home.

  5. Wonderful picture. Stylish, simple . . . and your accompanying words make me think about how lucky some of us are and how much some of us take our situations and relationships for granted. I wish you strength and comfort, and your partner protection and a safe return.

  7. SilverHubby is retired military, and even though I wish I found him earlier in our lives, I don't know how well I could have handled your experience.

  11. As a man who travels and is away fairly often I can relate being on the other end of the equation.

  16. Upon reading your words, I felt instant pride as you explain who the man in your life is & what he does.

    The quote is beautiful. Your body is ivory perfection.
