Letter Writing Time
Today proved to be a good day to take time to write to my adopted soldier/friend in Afghanistan. Regular readers of my blog may remember some of my early posts when I expressed some frustration about the challenges of writing to my soldier when I hadn't yet heard anything back from him. It was like carrying on a one-way conversation and it became difficult to think of what to say.
Now, though, we've exchanged many e-mails, including family pictures, and I feel like we've built a nice relationship. This makes it so much easier to think of things to talk about, and it certainly makes it more rewarding for me. I know he's getting my messages, I can write things of interest to him, and I know that receiving mail (physical and electronic) is truly important to him. I look forward to the chance to finally meet him in person when his deployment is up in October.
