My Husband's Photos

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

As most of you know, my husband (gngrbrd for our IRC friends and CaptainCookie for our SparkFriends) is out on his sihp for an extended, ten week hitch. We're in the homestretch now with just over three weeks left. That's an awfully long time to be away from home and hearth and to be cooped up on a 190 (or close to it) ship with nine other men. I am so thankful for a husband who sacrifices so much for our family, for me. He takes some amazing photographs. He truly captures the moment on many, many occasions. He sent these to me in email and I wanted to share them with you to give you an idea of what he sees while out in the Gulf at the rigs. The first is one of my very favorite photos of him. I don't know who took it but I am grateful to them. Man, oh, man but I love that smile!

A day in the life, huh?!

(When you read this, honey, I love you!!)

    Always enjoy pictures. Perhaps Bill can do a day in the life on board the ship from morning to bedtime. That would really be insightful, wouldn't it? -- Lou

    Missy, how can you not love a man with a smile as big as your Bill has, especially someone with such a wonderful twinkle in their eyes!

I know how you feel about being apart for so long. Mike spent 8 months in Cyprus years ago, was home for about 2 months, then off to an 'insurrection' type situation for 4 months, home for a few weeks then gone on another peace keeping mission for 5 more months. We joked that when he retired from active duty, that it seemed wrong to have him around all the time. We just weren't used to it! LOL

Hope you are all well!

Thanks for sharing these very special pictures with us - they are awesome!
