I can hardly believe it has already been seven days since I sent my husband on his way. Some-days it feels like he has been gone so much longer then a mere week. Other days it seems like he just left. I miss him a lot already . I was happy to get to have a quick chat with him last night & know he arrived to his final destination safely. That helps ease my mind a great deal. Now to start marking off the weeks until we see him again.
My mantra for the duration of this deployment is the same one I have used in the past. It always helps me to read it when I am feeling lonely.
"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the Bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone, in exchange for a little time with the one they Love.It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it - even if they don't see it nearly enough."
