I miss him. Its funny, just going a day without speaking to him seems like eternity. I have gotten so spoiled with our daily talks that when either one of us gets busy in our lives and we can't get to talk, then I feel so lost. MY sweetie is not feeling well tonight and I feel so helpless that I can't do anything to brighten his day.....I know he wouldn't want me to spend my night worried over him, men can be so stubborn that way, but it is what I do. When someone I care about is having a tough time or not there best, then I worry.My mind has been so scattered brain today. I was going to go grocery shoping and I had made it all the way down to the store when I realized I forgot my wallet. If that was the only incident today, I'd chalk it up to just a silly thing, but just before I left, I couldn't even find my own car keys....God, I am getting so forgetful.... So I drove back home and I said screw it, it can wait. I think this long work week and not getting some real time with my hunny is getting to me. But as I drove home, I heard this song on the radio on the way back and I really had to hold back my tears. The song was probably written for people that have been married for awhile, but for some reason, it made me think of my sweetie. It made me wonder what might happen to us in a few years. Will we finally be together or will this distance be so hard that we just call it off. Only time will tell.....i PRAY THAT GOD WILL HEAR MY PRAYERS AND BRING US TOGETHER AND SOON!!!!

Anyway, the song is called After all these years and it is by an old group I use to listen to. Journey.Now there was a band!!!!.......

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS...JOURNEY..

A faded wedding photograph
You and me in our first dance
Our eyes are closed
We're lost in one sweet embrace
Since those days the world has changed
Our love remains the same
God knows we've had our share of saving grace

And I'm proud of all the blessings
You have given me
The mountains we have climbed to get this far
You learn to take the laughter with the tears
After all these years

You make it feel brand new
After the fires that we walked thru
Against the odds we never lost our faith

In a house we've made our own
Where our children all have grown
Precious moments time can not erase

Make a livin' up and down the gypsy highway
Seasons that we've beared to share apart
Somehow in my heart I always keep you near
After all these years

After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years

After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years~
