From The Day He Deployed.
He had called twice that morning. I missed the first call. I was getting my morning coffee and had put my phone in my jacket pocket for just a minute, silly me leaving it on silent.
I talked to him later that morning and we said our “see you soons” and I cried and he comforted.
I’m glad I missed that first call. Now I have his voice with me every day, at the press of a button. I love that sound. His sound.
(As it turns out, he managed to call once more the next morning before leaving port. I could tell he was smiling on the other end of the line, and the grin on my face was impossible to hide. That’s when I realized how much he was worth all the waiting and all the tears. Pinky promise.)
