On this ride, we've had both ups and downs. I'm not going to lie and say that we've never had our moments when we just want to smack each other or that everything is always rosy, but I could count on my fingers the number of times we've had a real fight and the good times far outweigh the bad. Through the past 4 years, we have gone through a lot of things that have made our relationship even stronger. We have been through experiencing a parent with cancer, family fights and problems, friends abandoning us, emotional battles with us and between us, and of course him joining the Army. But from those hardships has grown a glorious love and a friendship that will last forever, he is truly my best friend and I like it that way.

But... we manage. We were still able to get each other gifts and we were able to talk a little earlier. I got him a nice clipper set so he doesn't have to complain about going to the PX once a week for a haircut anymore. =P And he got me a nice big stack of books. =D I'm so excited to delve into these military spouse books but I have to refrain until I at least finish one more term paper... lol
