That’s about how long I can go without talking to my soldier and still feel nice… after that all bets are off.
I feel antsy. I feel stressed. I feel mad. I feel drained. I feel sad. I need him!
I look around and see other couples. They don’t hold hands. The husband doesn’t have his arm around his wife. The wife has a sour look on her face and I just want to scream! “Don’t you know how lucky you are?” “Don’t you realize how special it is that you have the love of your life sitting right next to you?” “Don’t take that for granted!”
He will call when he can. He always does… every chance that he gets. And, when he does, I will feel nice again.
