so excited about my job interview Wednesday! I finally will be out of the house depressed thinking about what he’s doing over there or worrying. Of course I’ll worry. I’ll just be able to get my mind off it and make time go by faster until i habe him home for good! And more money! I’m so happy.
I feel like I need a shower. It’s like 540. Husband proceeds to ask me “oh you have a date or something” he says he’s being sarcastic. I find it really rude and hateful. Am I the only one who thinks I deserve an apology. Especially if we were in the middle of fighting?
This is for my military s/o’s.. you guys will absolutely love this song. It never fails to make me cry <3
Back in ‘41. you met a brown-eyed boy Who called you pretty He’d walk every day, couple miles out of his way To hold your hand and keep you company Your mama said, don’t call it love at 14 But sittin’ on that front porch swing
He gave you his picture in a locket That you wore around your neck Left it right beside your heart So you would not forget The way it felt when he held your hand And you swore that you would never take it off And the butterflies you felt said it all You were falling for the boy inside your locket
Back in ‘43, the brown-eyed boy went overseas And had to leave town for a little while He swore he’d marry you As soon as the war was through You would be his wife Standing in the pouring rain You cried as you watched him ride away
But everyday You had his picture in a locket That you wore around your neck Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget
The way his kiss tasted on your lips And everyday felt like a lifetime with him gone And you prayed that God would bring him safely home ‘Cause you made a promise To the boy inside your locket
Oh, 60 years you two had together But he’s been gone for a couple now And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember But I’ve been writing all your memories down And I stopped by today To read a couple pages Grandma, you sure look pretty And you smiled that smile The one I haven’t seen in quite a while And you said to me, 1 want you to keep
His picture in a locket that I wore around my neck The one I left beside my heart so I would not forget The greatest love and the greatest man I’ve ever known But it’s gettin’ time for me to head on home She said, that brown-eyed boy is waiting And I don’t want to keep him long Heaven is calling And she said, my heart is longing For the boy inside your locket
