Day-by-Day, Much Love & Some Crazy

I often get asked how I do it. The distance and long stretches of time apart. The truth is I'm not quite certain but my answer is pretty simple: I take it day by day. Most days it feels normal and I'm so busy I don't even have a chance to dwell on our situation and sulk about the distance.

But then there are those other days. When I'm having a rough work day or week. When we are arguing. When he's busy and all I want is to sit on Skype for hours. 

It's in those moments that I find my strength -- of which our relationship has helped to give me much more. I remind myself that this --living apart-- was by choice. I remind myself why I didn't follow him. I remind myself that I'm doing what I love and what I'd wanted to do since I was a young girl. I remind myself of my goals and my dreams and that I am working towards them everyday.

I remind myself of our love.
I remind myself that we have just months --not years-- left. 

And I remind myself why I do this (the distance) in the first place. Because I love him and us. Because he's my best friend. My soul mate. And because I'm crazy, heck we're crazy--crazy in love

This isn't an ordinary situation but this is no ordinary love. 

And soon, these years apart, the thousands of miles of distance, the underway, duty days and deployment . . . soon, those will all be moments of the past.
