I Just Call You Mine

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder."

What a true statement. I know that our Anniversary has already past, and with it our yearly-mushy post. But after being apart for a month when I was home in Utah, and now another month apart while he's working in Kenya and Uganda...I just had to post this.
Time apart makes you realize what you have.

I found this song (by Martina McBride) and I dedicate it to you Ben.
The words couldn't be more perfect for how I feel about you love:

I pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not in a dream
That's how it seems
I close my eyes and breathe in the sweetest moments I've ever known
It feels like home
And here I am, I want to be your everything
There you are
Turning winter into spring

I fall apart
Just a word from you just somehow seems to fix
Whatever's wrong
You reach into the weakest moments
And remind me that I'm strong
You've got to know
I'd be a fool not to see you, even worse
To forget that you're more than I deserve

Nothing makes sense when you're not here
As if my whole world disappears
Without you what's the point of it

Cause everyone that sees you
Always wants to know you
And everyone that knows you
Always has a smile
You're a standing ovation after years of waiting
For a chance to finally shine
Everyone calls you amazing
I just call you mine

i swear i hadn't seen your post when i changed my status on facebook last night. ha! we are just having the exact same thoughts and going through the exact same thing, friend. one good thing from all of this is that the hubs misses you just as much and then things are just that much better when you're together again. you both appreciate each other more and realize just how much you love one another. hang in there! i'm counting down the days too!
