LETTER

My husband hates to write, and the only thing worse for him than composing at a computer is writing with a pen. He didn't write me much from Iraq, but when he did, I knew he had forced himself to sit down and do it. That's touching.

Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, and I think deployments can sometimes bring out the best in a relationship. Mrs. Greyhawk found a letter from a husband in Iraq to his wife. It's positively breathtaking. You just have to see it to believe it.

UPDATE:

I swear I have never laughed so hard as I just did. I asked my husband if he had read the letter and -- right hand on a Bible -- he said, "Yeah. Was he talking about a chicken or a rooster or something? Man, there's a lot of them walking around Iraq. And how did he mail a bird to his wife? I don't get it."

My husband, the romantic.

3 "This is true love.. do you think it happens every day?" Westly -- A Princess bride. To be honest.. I get the feeling that Millitary Marriges are either the best of times.. or the worst of times... they seem to either shatter under stress.. or like yours... be forged into something stronger... Just remember.. Beer is Temporary.. so keep plenty on hand.. Love is forever.. so you are all that is needed
