To My Husband Before I Go..

Hello, my love.

           I know we didn’t expect this day to come up so fast. We’ve been talking about it for months. Those months turned into weeks. Now we’re down to just a couple of days. I know we automatically put our smiles on and tell everyone that we will be okay, and we even just tell each other we will be okay. Which, we will be. I have no doubt about that. However, we don’t have to act like it won’t be hard. You are my other half, and being apart from you is going to suck so bad. You are that thing that can always make me feel at ease when my anxiety gets the best of me. You are my sunshine when my depression kicks in. You are my best friend. I can come to you about everything. You are the only person who I feel 100% comfortable with. I can’t even begin to tell you how awful it’s going to be when I can’t even talk to you. When I can’t listen to your voice to calm myself down. When I won’t be able to feel your skin to feel like I’m home.

And it won’t even end after basic. For two or more years, we’re only going to see each other a handful of times. We’re going to have to compare schedules and try to fit in times to talk. Communication is going to be more important now than ever. It’s going to be hard to keep each other included in every detail of our lives.We have to remember to not leave each other out. It’s going to be extremely hard. At first, at least. It’ll take a little bit for us to get into the swing of things.

But you know what, we got this. When I think about everything we’ve already been through, this is nothing. A cake walk. Sometimes I wonder why I even worry. The main reason why I feel like we can do this is because of you. You reassure me whenever I need it. You never make me doubt that you love me. You show me that you are going to do whatever it takes to make this work. I know I am not in this alone. I won’t be going through this marriage by myself. And that is such an AMAZING feeling. There are people who live with their husband/wife and all of the work is one-sided. We’re going to be living in different states and we both are going to be putting 100% in. I am the luckiest woman in the world. God has blessed me with you.

I can’t wait to see where we go from here. We have so much ahead of us. So much love, success, adventure, growing. I love you.

Love, your wife

I used to hate sharing my thoughts and feelings with other people. I always thought that it would be used against me later. However, I find myself more and more open online. The more people responded to what I was saying, the more comfortable I became with posting more and more. It has been such a wonderful outlet for me.

A little bit about me: I’m Keera. I am 22 years old and I am happily married to my wonderful husband, David. We are living in the desert in Southern California. We are originally from Ohio, but we moved here with the Marines. We’ve been out here for a year, and it has been a great experience. It has given us a chance to grow in our marriage together without other people getting involved. We have learned to work our problems out ourselves by communicating. We have grown up so much.

I am enlisting in the Army. It’s been something I have been wanting to do since high school. I am so close to finally achieving this dream of mine. My husband is super supportive! We know that we’ll have to deal with distance once again, but we are prepared to make it work. There is just so much going on in my life and things are constantly changing! So this blog is to help me keep up with myself, and whoever else is interested in keeping up as well.
