Every so often I like to take time to write letters to my husband and document them here in this space.

Wade,

Here we are, in separate states once again. I suppose it's unavoidable right now. Between me taking time to visit my family before we move and you working like a madman to get us ready to go, we're forced to sacrifice just a little bit on our time together.

I miss you.

It blows my mind to think that in just a few weeks time, we'll be together practically everyday! Gone will be the nights (days for you) of climbing into an empty bed because of our shift differences. I'm really excited about that part :)

Speaking of work, I don't know if I tell you enough, but you are one of the hardest working men I know. Your dedication inspires me. I see your love in how committed you are to providing for us and making a way for us to follow after this crazy mission God has us on.

Very simply: thank you.

Life for us is about to change in a major way.  All we will have is God and one another.  And like you've said, I truly believe God is going to change us so much in the next year.

Based on Isaiah 48:10, I'm not expecting it to be a completely pleasant experience.

"Behold I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction."

But you know what? There is no other person on this planet I'd rather hold hands with in the process.
I love you babe.

Love,
Your Girl
