Saturday marked the start of week 4 of my husband being gone. We did get to see him this weekend, Sunday was "Family Day" on post. I took the girls up and we got to hang out with him at the picnic. We had a good time. He got to come home last night but left at 3 am this morning for Kansas for a week. And then he comes home for a week and leaves for Texas for a week. Boo!
He will be home for the month of September and then he starts Active Duty in October to deploy in January. Things are starting to "get real." I am going to be on my own for over a year!
Now don't get me wrong, I have an amazing family and they are always willing to help me out, but I miss my husband. He is going to miss so much. Holidays, birthdays, the girls growing up. The only thing that makes this bearable is how proud I am of him.
I don't have the guts to defend our country so I am so glad that my husband and all the others enlisted are willing to fight for our freedom. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
So today I will be thankful that he will be home next month for the entire month!
