Today my boyfriend is leaving. He is returning to Idaho to resume his college education at BYU. It’s both a happy time for me and a sad time for me for I know life will be much more enjoyable there than his current family life. At the same time, it will be difficult to be away from him for three months. Than again, I know I love my boyfriend more than the distance of 800 miles. If anything, these next three months will show our weaknesses and enable us to grow as a couple. It won’t be easy, but our relationship is worth it. All I can say is a love him, I’m proud of him, and thank goodness for Skype!
My heart is caving in at the thought.
The thought of you being 800 miles away once again. I’ve had you so close for so long it’s hard to imagine what it will be like when you’re no longer down the street. We’ve gone through unmeasurable tribulations and my investment in you is greater than I ever imagined it to be. Holding on and letting go at the same time is one of the hardest things. Finding my balance on this thin beam frightens me to an extent I can’t even explain. I love you to an extent I can’t even begin to describe. All I know is that I’m in this for the long hall. The distance will be the ultimate test of us and I’m ready. What is meant to be will be. And babe, I have a string feeling you and I are right. We fit and distance won’t change that. I’m so proud of you. Of us. I love you.
