Meanwhile, on the Home-front...

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I am missing him terribly! If you want even an inkling of an idea as to what a military spouse/significant other goes through on these things called deployments, watch the Jeep commercial from the Superbowl. It won't even show you half! So here I lay, in bed, after Skyping with the most amazing man I've ever met, wanting to cry my eyes out! I miss him so much! It's like they take a piece of your heart and ship it so far away from you, that you have no hope of reaching it. It doesn't get better with the nightmares of him never coming home, or worse, dying in my arms... that was last night's dream. I woke up super-early thinking it was real. I could hardly go back to sleep. When I finally did, I couldn't help but wake up every few minutes just to make sure it was all a dream. Plus, it's so hard to prepare for the rest of your lives together, when half of you isn't even here. They always tell me the first deployment is the worst, and that things will get better... I hope they're right!

    hang in there the first few months of deployment are the worst once they get into a routine you will feel better cause you will know more of accountability that he is safe. he will be okay God will take care of him. think positive thoughts before you sleep so you don't have those fearful dreams. God is with him and you said in a previous post he is in a safe place. So put your trust in God and know your hubby to be is going to be okay and so are you. your going to keep on taking care of yourself and get to the size you want and on the day that he comes back to you, hes going to have to use a fork lift to lift his jaw because your going to look even more amazing to him than you did when he left.
    smile and think positive, he loves you and so does God :)
