Thursdays Surprise ( a little behind on posts )

My Marine sent me a, I guess you can call it a Care Package. All he would tell me about it was "There is a couple of things that are going to smell like me." Ah, the way he smells, I miss it so much. He has a bottle of my perfume and he would always spray it on his pillow and remind me everynight that it smelled like me. I was sad cause I didn't have anything that smelled like him. I just lived off the memory of laying my head on his chest and taking a deep breathe and smelling his cologne.

I got a text at school from my mom saying you got a box from your Marine today. That single text made my day better. After getting flowers the day before, I get a box the next day. It was a good week especially with prom on Saturday. I couldn't wait to get home from school so I could rip the box open.

I was so excited when I got home, that I forgot to wait for him to be on cam when I opened it. I ran in the house and there it was on the counter just waiting for me. My mom was in the kitchen putting away groceries. I put my stuff down on the ground by the counter and my mom turned around with a big smile on her face and said to me " What's in the box? I wanna know." For some weird reason I think she was more excited than I was. I replied " I don't excatly know yet, but if you hand me that knife we can find out." Well needless to say she handed it to me and we broke into the box.

I knew there was something hidden in the box. Everytime a Marine would walk into his barrack he would ask them " do you think she will find this?". He never showed me what it was. I just know he said something way before he started to put together the box that he was going to send me his cover.

The first thing on top of the box was his desert camies cover. My mom and I torn it up looking for what could be hidden within this cover. We flipped it inside out and couldn't find anything. I handed the cover to her and I kept looking. I pulled out many thing. Mostly simple little momentos from us spending our first week together. Things I would hold on to, plane tickets, movie stubs, and his core values card.

Finally at the bottom of this box was his woodlands cover, I said "Mom, look what I found." She jerked it out of my hand and I grabbed it back looked on the inside and there it was little pins, the insignia of his rank pinned on the inside of his cover. My mom was mad that she spent that time digging through his desert cover looking for something. I just laughed.

We went through the rest of the box of things he sent me. There was one of his broken boot lace that gave him hell, a bottle of his cologne, his PT shorts and shirt, two covers, a notebook that he wants us to write back and forth in, pictures he had printed out of us, duct tape (I have no clue the motive behind that one), and the little momentos.

I really enjoyed going through the box and feeling closer to him. Here are a few pictures of the things he sent me.


The pins that my mom went through hell to find on top of the notebook he sent me.


There is the shorts, shirt, two covers, the notebook, and the pins.


The first page of the book he sent. This just seemed to make it even better. I smile every time I look at it. It is an instant mood booster.
