This weekend has been a life changing experience.
I am no longer a military girlfriend. No longer will I say "my boyfriend is in the service" or "my boyfriend is stationed...." or "my boyfriend is my hero".
It happened quickly and was a short conversation. Few words were exchanged. A few tears were shed, but at the end, we knew we were doing the right thing.
I guess when you are separated from someone, you are truly tested to see how you feel about them. It can really take you by surprise.
I am no longer a military girlfriend, but I do not regret the steps we took to get here. They were filled with joy and love that I will always carry with me.
No, I am no longer a military girlfriend. I am a military fiance and I couldn't be happier.
