he is safe

This morning the phone rang, it was just about eight. I looked at the caller ID and the number was one I hadn't seen in so long that for a second I thought, maybe, it was some one else or a wrong number. I answered, and it was exactly who I thought it was. Will. Hearing his voice, I felt such a sense of calm wash over me. You see, every time I have spoken to him lately, (which hasn't been much) he sounded tense, unhappy, and not at all like the Will I know. But today? It was peaceful and chipper.

"Do you know where I am?"
"Well, I am pretty sure you are in Texas. We have been getting information from the commander's wife."
"Damn FRG, ruining my surprise."

After he confirmed that he is no longer in theater, it felt like every worry and every stress I have felt for the past eleven months was melting away and finally allowing me to relax.

In my head these words just keep repeating:
He is safe, he is safe, he is safe.

I hope you feel a little bit lighter today. I'm so happy that he is safe and that he will be home in just a few short days.
