40 days since the last time I was able to get a hug and a kiss that makes me feel safe and secure.
40 days since our kids were able to hold you
40 days since our last meal together
40 days since I cried because you were leaving. Now I cry because you are not here
40 days sine I had a "good" nights sleep
40 days since ..........................................
Although you have been gone for 40 days I know I must be strong because there is more than 40 more to go. And even though it makes me sad that you are not here I am so thankful for ALL our blessings. For technology that allows you to call and sometimes video call. I am thankful that our children can be proud of their daddy knowing that he is a part of a big group of GREAT military people who protect us.
I miss you honey!!!!! No time for tears though. I must put on a happy face for the kids and be strong. Sometimes I need to make it through the day, sometimes I just need to make it through the hour. But I do know that we will make it through.
