Honey ... my true love. I hope this letter
brings a smile to your face. Writing it for
you brings a smile to mine, because it only
helps to create even more vivid images of you
in my head.
I have found the perfect new location for
the pictures I keep of you. I used some old
wood the other day to construct a handy-dandy
little shelf on the wall above my cot. When I
lay in my sleeping bag on my back I stare
right into the bottom of that shelf. So, I
quickly determined this to be the perfect
place to tape them up. Now, everytime I lay
down to go to sleep your beautiful smile is
the last thing I see ---- and when I wake
each morning I stare into those
amazing eyes of yours. It is very helpful
for me ---- to know you are looking down on me
when I sleep here at night. I think I
will still love to take them down and carry
them with me when we go "out" to do stuff.
They've always come along with me...
Honey, I can't wait to hold you in
my arms. I dream nightly of our reunion
and how overwhelming it will be. Your
mere touch alone will probably make
me get choked up with overwhelming
happiness. I long to be with you Danielle.
I miss you and love you!
