Day Sixteen: An Experience
So this entry started out as a joke, and is now becoming something else. Hehehe.
Today, I’m thankful for the start of my friendship with ML. We met over the internet via, not one, but two military support message boards. I honestly didn’t think much would come of it, since there is such a vast difference in our ages and our stages in life.
What started out as emails of support between a Marine wife and a Marine Girlfriend, became a random & crazy first phone call (she was lost in Wilmington, I was traveling the notoriously dead zone riddled back roads of Iowa). She and Vincent visited us shortly after we arrived at Camp Lejeune, and ML was the first person to spend the night in our “new” house -- we didn’t even have our furniture yet!
Together we’ve waited in line at book signings. Traveled from NC to SC, and back again, with a van full of kids and dogs. We braved Black Friday in Columbia -- twice. Eaten copious amounts of chocolate cookies. And attended so many Pure Romance parties that I’ve lost count.
Our relationship is, truly, one of a kind.
