His Airman, His Marine

There has been a lot of talk in the past few days about the gay Marines and the welcome home kiss they shared when one of them got back from deployment.  But yesterday I stumbled on another picture.




I then followed a link back to one of these guys blog pages.(here).  (One is in the US Air Force and the other in the is a Marine.)


There were other pictures.  I hope they don't mind me posting them, but I was so moved by them


Photo caption: "At the end of the day… even across the sea. You’re the last person I speak to and see…. and first to wake up to and see in the morning. Physically and Pixelated… we’re never apart."


And there were a few more:






Go back and take another look at these pictures.  You can just feel the love these two guy have for each other.  It is palpable.  You can see how happy they are to be together.  I do not know how long they have been together, but they seem like they are so at ease together as if they have been together a long time.  So comfortable.


These is the way I feel when I am with T.  When we are together I am smiling, even if just on the inside.  I feel like these guys.


There is another lesson I can learn from these guys.  They seem to be able to be happy even when they are apart.  Being in the military, I assume they are sometimes deployed separately for long periods of time and still they smile.


Today I am feeling whiny.  I miss T and I was not able to go see him tonight.  I will see him tomorrow, but I want to hold him now.  I had and long day at work and when I got the K's house this afternoon, she was upset about several things, the kids needed help with homework and I was tired.  If I was going home to T's arms when it was over, it would not have been that bad, but I was gong home to my empty bed.  I was feeling lonely and whiny.


But now, I feel a little silly.  I look at these young guys who are clearly in love and they found ways to be happy and smile in their love.  Even on the days when they are apart.


I guess if these guys can do it, I can do it too.

We'll do it together. Paul is gone and I miss him. But isn't it nice having someone to miss?
