The war started yesterday and Thomas left to take up his command. My heart is broken in two with my Thomas gone. I have not stopped crying since he left yesterday. I’ll be traveling to Louisville soon to stay with his family there. The world I am living in is changing too fast. I want my Thomas back with me so we can start the family we have been talking about. We have been married less than a month and already we are separated. I hope this war ends quick, Thomas comes home quick, he is safe, and we can be together again and then babies, lots of babies. . Last month when we were married I never knew I could love someone this much and my heart could ache this much with him gone. He is my heart and soul.
