Counting Down



I woke up this morning pretending it wasn't just one more day.

I've ignored the lump in my throat  and smile like my heart is not breaking in a million pieces.

We talked about the vacation we'll take when he comes home.  Won't it be fun to celebrate Prim's birthday here or there? We've talked about buying a house towards the end of the year.  Is this how I entice you to stay in one place? I tease.

We'll all go to bed tonight knowing that tomorrow is another goodbye.

In twenty four hours I will watch half of my heart walk away in a uniform.

April,
You broke my heart with that post. I will be praying for your husband and for you and your entire family as you deal with this separation again. Lots of hugs...

Read this with tears in my eyes! I hope these next months go by quickly and that you find joy in the Lord each day. I am married to a farmer, so I am alone a good part of every year so I can relate to you in a small way... I don't know about you, but I always get people that say "I could never handle it."

We deal with it because of love.

So so hard saying goodbye and the hard time apart - well nothing can compare to it.... but how very very PROUD I am of our amazing boys, the most awesome and bravest of men who when they put on their cams make our world a better place.
