I just thought I'd take this time of sickness to talk about how Jake shows me that he loves me.
So today I'm sicky mcsick sick, but being the Wonder Woman that I am I still went to all my classes and all of the things of the day I said that I would attend, including Jake's Plank Owner's Ceremony.
The Plank Owner's Ceremony, in short, was given to this class of NROTC midshipmen because they were in the very first class of NROTC ever at ASU, and Jake was lucky enough to be the only midshipman to speak.
Ok, so that's not really about how much he loves me, that's just me being proud of him.
Oh, and did I tell you that he got a full ride scholarship to ASU for NROTC? And the he was 1 of only 22 midshipmen in the whole country to get it?
I'm dating a genius.
This is where my story was going.
Today I'm sick with a sinus infection, the shakes, and a migraine, but I still went to his ceremony. The look on his face when he saw me was priceless. He was so happy that I made it.
He introduced me to everyone we ran into.
He let me sit and got me water 50 times during the reception.
He cooked my dinner. AND cleaned up for me after dinner.
He kissed me even with my sicknasty snot nose running down my face.
There are some days when I take him for granted. I'm not going to lie about that.
But then there are those days when I sit and think about how lucky I am, and realize that not everyone would be willing to put up with me, not everyone is as kind and generous and faithful, and not everyone would give so much of themselves to another person as he gives to me.
No one is my Jake.
I love you, Jake Tyra.
You're so wonderful.
