For some Remembrance day brings thoughts of those who fought and died so we could all be free.Not for me...
I remember my mom.
She was but a young girl of 16 when the war was going on, and the Norwegian soldiers had a base in our tiny hometown. She told me stories of leaving school to work washing the uniforms of the soldiers..and how she fell in love with one them.
After she past away many years ago, while going through her things in an old cedar chest in her bedroom, I found the love letters..from the Norwegian soldier to her.
I could see the smeared ink from the teardrops,on the old yellowed paper, and part of me felt it was wrong to even touch them, let alone read them.Even though they were few in number...there was so much love conveyed in those letters.
She never saw him after the war, and waited till her 40's to marry. But she always gave herself away when she was thinking about him as she'd burst into songs that she danced to way back then...and this was her favorite:

Miss you mom...

Such a beautiful sentiment.

The love of a woman to a warrior is a perilous journey to take. For there is the chance that the two hearts will never re-unite. A heart that doesn't have that closure never truly heals. Not completely.

Stories like this always give my heart a tug. How many times must your mother have wondered "what if"?

Through no fault of either person, a love was lost, and I can't help but think of the tears that were shed over this.

War is hell, and I wonder how many more hearts were broken at this time. It certainly makes me think about the sadness in the world...
