I’ve always thought that I would never settle down and find someone who genuinely cares about me. Yet, I’ve been incredibly blessed with a wonderful woman who cares about me more than I ever thought possible. Relationships are hard and long distance relationships are even harder, throw in a few trips overseas and if that girl is still around she’s a keeper. I’m honestly still shocked that every day I get to wake up and have such a beautiful person in my life.

To my beautiful girl - Thank you for loving me when I least deserve it, when I’m not myself and for when I have to be a million miles further away from you. I am grateful for your never ending support and kind words. You are and forever will be my favorite person on this earth. Your heart is as beautiful as you are and I admire how strong you are. Thank you for everything you do for me and giving me this opportunity to take care of you and love you. You are everything I could have ever asked for and so much more.

Dear Future Wife.

I know they say that distance makes the heart grow fonder, but for you distance makes everything harder. You’re not good with missing me and I know it makes your life so much more difficult than it needs to be.

We will get through this. Everything will be okay and we will be together soon. Hopefully I won’t have to go overseas any more and we can finally settle down and get everything you’ve ever dreamed of having. I only want the best for you and I want you to always be happy.¬†

You are the reason I do this job and the reason I keep on fighting. You are everything. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love you.

Keep your head up beautiful girl.
