Happy Tears

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

For the last week my fiance has been asking every day if I've checked the mail, because there was supposedly something about his military health insurance coming that he needed. I thought it was suspicious, being as the military knows exactly where he is and would have sent anything he needs to the base he's stationed at right now, but I didn't call him on it and made sure to check the mail every day. Last night I found the real reason why he wanted me to be checking the mail; a beautiful card and a 3-page letter that made me cry. He's not generally the overly sweet, romantic type, and the fact that he poured his heart out on paper like that touched me like nothing else could. He's proven on several occasions that he can be a total romantic, and I think it's all the more special to me when it happens at random. It's one thing to come home to flowers on an anniversary or a special day, but when I get home from work and find that he's got a candle lit bath prepared, or made a special trip to my favorite winery just because, it means the world to me. That card and letter will be something I read a million times during his deployment, probably while I'm wearing his hoodie that I've already warned him he's not getting back! :-)
