I waited forever to call you mine, and I’ll wait however long I have to for you to come home.
But there’s nothing I wouldn’t give to have you here beside me tonight.
I miss you.
I just want to scream at the top of my lungs the reasons I’m not full of energy and over-happy attitude. All of my positive energy is going into Ellis. I don’t have enough for the rest of you, you are not my priority.
The U.S. Marine is a professional who stands ready to fight anytime, anywhere, any enemy that the President and Congress may designate and to do so coolly, capably, and in the spirit of professional detachment. He is trained not to hate, nor is he whipped up emotionally for battle or any other duty the Corps may be called on to perform.
Let me just brag for a second about how amazing he is.
I feel so lucky that we were able to have a funny, cute, normal conversation & even luckier to have a guy like him! Internet cafes rule! xo
We’re talking on Facebook chat right now. I’m the happiest girl in the world!
It’s just so nice to have a normal conversation with him. <3
Today marks a month since I’ve seen Ellis.
Needless to say, it’s been a rough night. Not a single day has gone by that he hasn’t been the most prominent thought in my mind. I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I’ve seen him, & I suppose that’s a good thing. If this first month passed quickly, I can only hope the next 8 or so will do the same.
This is the most recent picture I have of him, just a few days before he deployed. He’d just had to shave his head completely and he was miserable because he looked like a basketball, but to me he always looks handsome. I hurt my finger doing something ridiculous and he sent me this kiss to make it better.
I adore this man.
Missing this handsome fella.
He wrote my name & address in his cover so if he ever loses it, it gets sent to me. I just think that’s the sweetest thing.
Look what came in the mail today!
Just received another email from Ellis as well, a short one due to blackout but he says he’ll be on again to write more later. I wasn’t expecting to hear from him for a few more days so this was definitely a happy surprise!
And getting angry at every email that isn’t from Ellis, even though I know I won’t hear back from him until Sunday when he is allowed internet access.
Waiting a week between emails is much better than 3-4 weeks between letters but damn! I still get so impatient.
