Once in a lifetime...

It's hard to have to say goodbye to someone you after only seeing them for a few days, and knowing you won't meet again for quite a while. Gav is gone, back to Chicago to finish school at Wheaton College in IL. The better half of my heart is 2000 miles away. It hurts. I take comfort in knowing I get to see him in 7 weeks (well 6 now), but unfortunately, that doesn't make saying goodbye any easier. After he leaves, I usually mope around for about a week (which I've done), then slowly start to regain my usual joy...but it's never fully back until my love is back with me. Perhaps its wrong that much of my happiness rests on him, but at the moment, I can't help it. Don't get me wrong, my true joy is found in God, He has the ability to dull the pain, but it's still there. I know I sound like a whiney little college student right now...lol...and thats exactly what I am. I know there are thousands of people who say goodbye to their loved ones, never knowing for sure if they will come back...so I am grateful for the certainty of Gav's return (Lord willing). I guess what I'm really asking for is if you catch me moping around....please kick me out of it! :) He'll be back in May, after he graduates, and thank goodness...he'll be home for good! :) I cannot wait!

haha...I'm just rambling now...so I will leave you here with these lyrics...

"I can see it in your eyes and feel it in your touch
I know that you're scared but you've never been this loved
It's a long shot, baby, I know it's true,
But if anyone can make it, I'm betting on me and you
Just keep on moving in to me
I know you're going to see
The best is yet to come

Don’t fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I’m never giving up, 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

Everybody's looking for what we've found
Some wait their whole lives and it never comes around
So don’t hold back now,
Just let go of all you’ve ever known
And put your hand in mine

Don’t fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I’m never giving up, 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

I close my eyes and I see you standing right there
Saying “I do” and they’re throwing rice in our hair
Then the first one’s born, then a brother comes along and he’s got your smile
I’ll be looking back at the life we had still at your side

So don't fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I’m never giving up, 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love"

Hi Brittany!
It was wonderful meeting you in Vegas! You're so sweet!
So I was strolling around your blog and it's such a small world...I am from Santa Rosa! I can also relate to having your lovie half way across the world, because a zillion years ago, my guy lived in Europe and I was at home pouting in California. So hang in there!
You are totally welcome to visit us in Vermont...anytime!!
