Today was the day my solider had to leave to get ready for his upcoming deployment. There were tears, far too many from me, but we all know I “feel” things more than other people. I tried to keep busy, tried to make the day worth while and I made it to nap time. That is when the real tears came. I called my husband, only a few hours from home and he gave me the pep talk I needed! I can do this! God is with me! We are still a family, even if we are miles apart! We can get through this and we will! Put my head down. Take it one day at a time. His voice was so perfect to hear. He always calms me down! It’s only been one day. I can’t picture how it will be seven weeks from now when we get to see him again for block leave, but I know it will be the best day of the entire summer! I already can’t wait to see him again!
