Don't forget the tissues

I always carry tissues with me nowadays.  It never fails that I am feeling great when the littlest thing will remind me that he's not here.

I was reminded of you today when:

                                  I woke up and your spot in the bed was empty

                                                            I heard our wedding song on the radio

                   we went to the sporting goods store and I had to figure out the sports stuff for our daughter

the kids were fighting and I couldn't ask you to help out

                                                                               I did laundry and it seemed so little

         I drove your truck

                                                             our daughter called using your old cell phone number

I didn't cook dinner because you are my big eater

                                          I was watching TV and didn't have you to laugh with

I went to the grocery store and didn't need to buy your usual stuff

                                                                                      I wanted to tell you something but I couldn't just call

                           I went to your favorite lunch spot- Saigon- yummy

  I filled out the customs form for your box to ship
                                                                              I drove by your squadron on the way to the commissary
       I said my prayers

                                         and in my dreams!

Miss you babe!!

Awww! this is such a sweet post! Sad, but also happy - shows how much you LOVE him, and how much he means to you every minute of every day.

Hang in there.

The laundry being so little really hit me this weekend. As I put away the few remnants of his laundry that he wore our last night together - it broke me down.

Many hugs and much love to you, wherever you are! Hang in there!

I have a break down every time I am in Costco - I don't know why. Also, sometimes when I am walking the dog the silence creeps in... I love that you are posting this - it makes me remember I am not alone in my burden.

Hugs <3

Sending you a hug! I've been feeling flooded by reminders a lot lately, I just ran out of tissues today! Hope these reminders also remind you of how good it will feel when he’s home again!
