Day 40-- since you left

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.

I love this post, it is so true, some hours or days are better than others but the main point is that they all eventually disappear and we are onto another day closer to homecoming
