A Write to My Husband My Hero in Iraq
Entry for Mystic Rose’s Contest~A Write to Our Heroes~Written by Gwendolen
To My dearest Sweetheart,
Hello dear. It’s me again. I haven’t slept well since you left for Iraq. I don’t think I’ll
ever sleep well again til you are back home in my arms again. Dear, do you know
what you did with the keys to the shed? I was trying to fix the kitchen sink and I
needed the plumber’s wrench that you always kept at your side. I also wanted to
know if our home owner’s insurance is current? Do you see how every little detail of
my life you are in the middle of it? Even though these are small potatoes, when I
think of them I think of you because you and I have always been the dynamic duo.
Life partners forever!
Darling, I had a dream about you last night. It was the most vivid dream as though
you were sleeping right next to me. We were on a golden beach in heaven and
there were sea gulls all around us. These birds were singing songs of adoration to
God Jehovah and we were singing along with them. Each sea gull was keeping
perfect harmony and we were echoing their words. It was a most amazing dream.
When you get back home we must go back to the place where we had our
honeymoon and get a fresh start. I want our marriage to be the best gift ever and
I want to start all over from the very beginning getting a “do over” so to speak.
Every mistake we have ever made in our marriage I want to do it over the right
way this time. What do you think about this, dear? Let us throw our past behind us
and start all over like a new sunrise with a new hope. I forgive you for all the times
you have walked out on me and the children. I also have learned to forgive myself
for all the times I was unfaithful to our wedding vows. I have no problems speaking
candidly from my heart because it is washed new from the blood of our Savior
Jesus Christ. He has done a wonderful transformation in my life, and I want to
share Him with you when you return home. Our family is now covered by the blood
of Jesus from you while you are serving the United States Army on the battlefield
there in Iraq to little Jimmy when he is playing here on the playground in San
Antonio. Our entire family is covered beneath the Almighty Creator’s protection! I
wanted to share that with you, dear.
I love you so much! Not a single moment goes by that I don’t think of our fresh
beginning. I hope you want it as much as I do.
Always your loving spouse. Yearning for you to come back home to me and our two
