Waiting Impatiently

View from the airport on my last trip to Germany.

In just a few hours, my Dear One will be on his way to the airport. He will get on an airplane and he will fly over the Atlantic Ocean, and, if all goes well - I'm a little worried about this snowstorm - at 3:35 tomorrow afternoon, he will step onto American ground and shortly thereafter will be in my arms.

Long distance relationships are not easy. Far, far from it. They take an extraordinary amount of trust, patience, love, and persistence, and at times can be frustrating and lonely and painful. But in that single moment when I lay eyes on my Love once again after three long months; when my heart nearly beats out of my chest and I fall in completely and hopelessly in love all over again; in that moment, I am certain that I would have nothing less than this beautiful, imperfect, hard wonderful relationship I share with a Really Great Man.

Long distance relationships are not easy at all! You said it just right now, no matter how long you're apart, the moment you see the one you love again, all the loneliness and pain just melts away.
I get to go visit my boyfriend next Friday too! I'm very excited :)

Hope you have a great time :)

I hope you two will have a great time together! I hope you enjoy every single moment and will be (if possible) even more in love with each other afterwards!

It seems really hard to have a long distance relationship. Don't know if I could make it work, so much respect for you and your loved one! :)
