After being together for over 9 years (8+ of marriage)...it is amazing to me how much I still miss Gav when he has to leave for more than his regular daily schedule. Some may find it cheesy or syrupy...but I love how distance still makes my heart grow fonder and yearn for his return. I was told that over time I would become less attached and more excited to have my own time when he would be away. It seems my older "wiser" friends were WRONG! I only miss him more and feel more incomplete. I guess it just stinks when your best friend leaves for 10 days...but its great that my best friend and best pal is my hubby! Love you GLOVE!!!
