Thank you to all our men and women in uniform who serve our country.
Flash Fiction challenge – details below:
Together we’ve survived another shift, another day, another insurgency.
Sometimes I feel all alone; you are there to comfort me. As we maneuver through our days, we avoid certain death. Yet, here you are: Patient, kind, comforting me.
Our bodies are tired, our feet ache. We have weeks left together, then you’ll go home to your family. You say you’ll try to take me and I have to believe it will happen. I cannot imagine my life without you.
The sweet hugs, gentle kisses, and your loving care is all I have known. It’s you and me together. Forever.
