It has been an incredibly long day with many good parts but also many tears. I received an absolutely gorgeous bouquet of a dozen beautiful purple roses on Friday. A knows me so well considering purple is my favorite color. And also with these roses was an adorable purple bear. He's so wonderful to me and spoils me so much even when he's over 6000 miles away! I LOVE YOU!
So...you are probably asking, "Why the tears?" Although A was wonderful and it was great that I got to talk to him for a while yesterday on webcam, he informed me that he would be traveling today. I knew that he would be just fine but it is still nerve racking nonetheless. Every week at church we always make a point to pray for the military. But this week, that part just got skipped over. So there I was for the last 20 minutes of church crying. I know...ridiculous, but it was just not a good day for that. All I could think about was the fact that it's Valentines Day and all of our troops are away from their loved ones, A is traveling today, and there's so much going on in Afghanistan right now and you choose THIS week not to pray for them. Anyway...enough about that. I've gotten over it at this point I guess...but am glad I can get it out here as well.
Tonight I went to dinner with one of my good friends and her sister-in-law and then went to see the movie Valentines Day. It was an adorable movie and I definitely recommend going to see it. But then at the end I was in tears because of how it ends for the little boy (I don't want to give it away...but I promise if you see it, it's not really sad just sweet and you'll understand if you watch it why it might make me tear up!) :-)
Although there were many tears today and different parts of the day, it was a great day. After church this morning I got to enjoy the company of many other military family members, including Expat Girl. It was great to see her again since we've been getting so much snow. There was some great food, since it was a brunch, great company, and we all got a lot done for putting together packages for our troops! I absolutely love putting together packages for them because I know that receiving mail puts a smile on their faces. YAY!
I hope that you all had a great Valentine's Day with your loved ones and for those of you who are apart that you are doing well and have recently heard from your loved ones!
