Marine pretending to cheat off a 4th graders math exam. - Phillippines
Ahh. This is so cute!
This is my life, thoughts, likes, dislikes, wants & wishes in words, photos and videos. :]
Because I miss him.
I remember thinking back when I met him in middle school 9 years ago that he was way out of my league. When he asked me to be his girlfriend back then, I thought I was dreaming. There was no way this incredible person liked me. Throughout high school, he became my best friend. He became my support. He became the most important person in my life. No one ever replaced him. Even through all the ups and downs. Even when we weren’t together. Even when he moved away. There was always a special place in my heart for him.
He joined the Navy, and 4 years have past where I didn’t see him. He never missed a Birthday, or a major holiday. He always remembered to call or shoot me a text.
This past January, we finally saw each other again after 4 long years. He came to visit me in Corvallis and we grabbed breakfast. We talked about life, and what we’ve been up to in the recent years. We shared our dreams, and passions. He was the exact same person I fell for back in middle school, but all grown up. He became the type of person I wanted to be with.
After that, occasional text messages turned into talking all day long, every day. Time and distance played its role, and brought us back together.
Everything happens for a reason. The time and distance apart taught us how to really be together. Not just in that “high school puppy love” kind of way, but in the “you’re over 3,000 miles away from me most of the year, but I’ll wait here for you as long as it takes just to see you for a day” kind of way.
I’ll tell you how.
Because he came into my life over 9 years ago when we both were awkward, and didn’t know what being in a real relationship really was.
Because he sees me for all my flaws and imperfections, and can honestly tell me he thinks I am “flawless.”
Because he tells me things like, “I’m never letting you go” & “I would do anything for you, and you know that” and mean it.
Because even from over 3,000 miles away, he can make me feel like I’m am the only person in the world that he wants to talk to and be with.
Because he deserves more than I can give him, and it’s more than enough for him.
you all deserve someone who isnt embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, good and bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you. i hope you all find that!!
I’m so lucky I found him 9 years ago. 3,000+ miles is the only thing keeping me from falling asleep in his arms every night. Can’t wait til he comes home again. <3
