My DF (dear fiancé) is currently underway for X amount of time so we are only talking through e-mail. I got an e-mail from him Saturday morning and it was a wonderful way to start my day. He ended the e-mail with:
When it was time for me to drive to the event, I had my bag packed with everything I needed. Make-up, hairspray, a brush, my tape recorder so I could practice etc... The night was AMAZING! I love the feeling of a mic in my hand and my feet on a stage. The lights. The band. The audience. It's a good fix.... When I got back to my parents house, I was feeling pretty happy & proud of myself. Later in the night I started thinking about DF...
He's on a ship.
While I was on a stage.
I became proud of the man whom I can call mine. He has always supported me & my dreams of performing (singing, acting, the works...). While he is out at sea on a ship, while he was out there working, while he wears a uniform that designates him as a U.S. Service Member.... I realize that he is the reason why I have the opportunity to perform on stage and do what I love. He is doing his part in serving our country, defending it, & keeping it free.
I love my fiancé. I'm grateful for his love. I also love my service member. I am proud and grateful that he chose to join our military.
Thank you to all of our service members.
