First, I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who commented yesterday. You have no idea how much that helped! I'm so thankful to have such a great group of
Most of you have been through multiple deployments, have had children without your husband there, have played Mommy and Daddy while your husband was away, and have been heroes. I know that our husbands are the real heroes for risking their lives for our safety, but to our children we are heroes too. (I say "we" because I am going to have kids one day. =)) Our children will remember the way we "kept it together," cried with them, held them, loved them, attended all their games, recitals, etc., and did the 9 million things it takes to run a household all without Daddy. They may not realize it now, but one day they will.
You ladies give me hope. Hope that I can - like you - make it through the D-word. Hope that I won't waste away while he's gone. Hope that I will be ok.
So, to all of you
Love and hugs,
