Aug 17, 2010So the dreaded "D" day finally come and gone. My hubby has left for his 15 month deployment. I've cried so much I wonder if I'm going to end up at the hospital again for dehydration (just making a funny). This is probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through. This is our first deployment together. We have been married 2 years and have been together over 3. I just keep looking at the phone, hoping it will ring and that it will be him. I want that peace of mind to know he is safe. As much as I hate this, I'm trying to see the bigger, better picture. I know he is fighting for this country, to protect our kids, our freedom, even of those who do not support what he does. He is doing a selfless act. Willing to put his life on the line, be away from his family, his children, every day ammenities. Those things that we all take for granted. I hope anyone who happens to read this, can take the time to say a prayer for my hubby and the other soldiers overseas, that they come home safely, and a small prayer for me that I can hold things together for myself and our two children. It would be appreciated.
