I have a week left until I'm outta here and headed to the west coast (which with the stops along the way will take about a week). I will be stopping 2 hours short of the actual coast but that's ok because my oasis called Jake will be there. After 23 very very long weeks living alone I will finally be back together with the love of my life and I can not wait!
The reason I named this blog "you are who I am" is because, like God wants us to, Jake and I have realized more than ever that we are everything to each other. The amount of time we have spent together is less than it has ever been, however, since we have kept our focus where it should be (on Him) and on marriage we have managed to strengthen our relationship tenfold. We make sure to thank God for what we do have like letters and phone calls and have kept looking forward to when we get to be together again...
Which will be in 2 weeks!!!
Granted, I do have a lot of stuff to do, places to be, and people to see between now and then but I am looking forward to keeping busy and finally getting this stage of the process over with. I know there will be other times that we will be separated but at this point, I don't know when those times will be and I can not focus on that or I will miss what I am given. I will not be taking for granted big things like dates for granted or small things like holding hands. No one thing will be overlooked and it is refreshing to know that our marriage will never get old because we both know what it is like to not have one another therefore we appreciate each other more than before.
I am also looking forward to the road trip I'll get to take with my mom on the way out west and I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot about our wonderful adventure.
