A valentine heard around the world...

Happy Valentine's Day from Beaufort, South Carolina to somewhere in Afghanistan. 

I'm seeing boats on the water and Spanish moss blowing in the wind; and you are seeing snow capped mountains. 

I see our children dressed up in princess outfits, giggling and laughing; you see sweaty men in military uniforms. 

I see our girls food smeared faces smiling up at me; you see the dirt stained faces of the Afghan children. 

Someday soon, we'll see the same things at the same time.  Until then, know you are loved and missed by your girls.

Thanks for making me cry ;)

Can't wait until you two are seeing the same things again!
