Helen and Shawn

Plane window horizon

My name is Helen Martin and I’m a British Citizen. My husband’s name is Shawn and he is from the USA.

Every time I get ready to fly to the United States, I get sick with nerves and excitement; I can’t help but run to the bathroom multiple times before leaving the house.

I feel sick all the way there, but when the plane lands and I walk down that corridor to see my wonderful husband waiting for me, all my sickness and worries disappear in an instant. I rush into his arms and we both hug and cry and kiss. And I feel whole again.

Shawn isn’t just my husband. He is my best friend, my soul mate. He is what keeps me going when times are hard. He can make me laugh no matter what our circumstances are. There are no words to describe what we mean to each other. It’s like we are two halves that fit together perfectly in every way.

I miss you, my love. There is no better feeling in this world than when I look into your eyes and see you.
