Letters From War (excerpts)

Jan 24, 08
With everything going on I haven't had much time to sit down and write. I know you prefer a handwritten letter over an email.
...It rained all day today and I must have stepped in every puddle on my way to breakfast this morning. It's usually still dark out when I go, I wasn't doing it on purpose.
Hopefully I'll have my school work drama sorted out long before you get this. That's probably something you wouldn't think would be an issue during a war, school work.
I'm glad you liked those flowers I sent. I thought you could use some color to cheer you up (the purple on your ankle didn't count.)
I'm counting the days til I come home. I miss you. Give my love to the kids (and dogs).
I love you,

I adore these excerpts. Thank you so much for sharing them when you could keep them all to yourself - as you would have every right to.

When does he come home?

Becky said...

That is so touching.

It's great that you are able to stay close during a time like this. You're doing a great job of 'holding down the fort' while he's gone.
