Monday Meanderings - Are We There Yet?

So, tomorrow "D" comes down to Texas for the rest of his leave. Am I excited? You bet I am! I am looking forward to spending more time together and seeing if the chemistry of the past couple of months and a week ago will carry over for more of an extended time together. I'm also nervous. Extremely nervous b/c after this coming Saturday, "D" goes back to Iraq for 8 more long months. Then he gets demobilized for another month or so. I don't know exactly what this time will bring, if it will create a bond to last a lifetime or will it be another heart break. Will we have the gumption to go the distance or will it fizzle out? I am hoping FOR the former, of course, and really praying against the latter.

This week will bring "D" into contact with the three people who mean the most to me: Emily, my mom and MC. I'll update after it's over with pictures, I hope. In the meantime, I alternate between really, super excited and kind of super nervous. I hope I'll know what he has in mind before he goes back to Iraq. "D" is a fun, wonderful, kind, Christian man. Whatever the outcome I'm blessed to know him.

Praying things work out for you and D - and for his safety in Iraq.
