If anything can go wrong, it will.

Two Weeks of Bliss

Alex

Beautiful, isn’t he?

I spent two weeks waking up every morning to this face. It was the happiest two weeks of my life.

Yesterday morning, I had to say goodbye. My heart feels like it’s in a million tiny pieces right now. He tells me, and I tell myself, that the separation is only temporary, that as soon as I’m cleared to fly I’m headed in his direction. My heart still feels so broken. The distance in our relationship was difficult when I had no idea what it was actually like to fall asleep in his arms, or be able to reach out and touch him, or kiss him. Now, though, I know those things, and I know exactly what it is to be missing them.

It’s okay. It’s only for a while

Very little went according to plan.  It’s quite a long story, but we were forced to spend our two weeks in a hotel. We didn’t really go very many places, essentially just out for food & supplies. Even so, all I cared about was that he was there, with me. He swears it was the same for him; that everything that went wrong doesn’t matter at all.

He makes me ridiculously happy, and I am, as far as I can tell, the luckiest girl in the world.

Oh, but I no longer have a boyfriend.

I have a fiance.

  • Congratulations are in order, so… Congratulations!

    I understand your feelings about the wait. In years to come it will just be a memory and you will laugh about it but that’s little consolation now. Live it through as best you can because it is still a part of your life and will become a part of your joint history.

    They say that ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ but the fact is that that fondness is as nothing compared with the love that grows between you when you at last spend your lives together. You have that to look forward to. Let that brighten your day rather than dim it.

    • Thank you so much!

      As much as the distance is just that much harder now that we’ve been together, I am still overall the happiest I have ever been.

      So many wonderful things to remember, and so many more wonderful things to look forward to.

      In a few weeks, as long as I’m cleared to fly, I’ll be making my way to England to spend more time with Alex, and hopefully, to also start doing the things we need to do to make a permanent move. (Such as finding a place for the two of us).
