"...if there's one thing I learned, it's that when our servicemen and women go to war, their families go with them. I saw how they take care of each other, heard how they fill in whenever the system fails and discovered that the trials they faced always were matched by the hope they shared that better days are still ahead." - Michelle ObamaThank you for being strong enough to hold me up, live your dreams, and keep us safe all at the same time. My flowers are beautiful and this morning's brief call made my birthday wonderful! I hope the deluge of care packages adequately convey how much I love you and how proud I am to be waiting for you to come home. I'd choose this life again and again and again to spend it with you. See you in dreams tonight - let's meet somewhere warm!
