daddy j left last may, so it's nearly daddy j come home month! I am so relieved.
I can count on one hand the number of times I have cried this year. on those rare occasions I cried, it was because I felt exhausted with no end in sight.
I got so used to that feeling that when I was in Claire's today buying c a bracelet and myself a pair of festive earrings for when daddy j comes home, I hardly knew how to handle feeling something new.
In Claire's, I bought C a little bracelet with beads and a heart made out of the American Flag. When showing it to my mom, I found myself crying and I couldn't stop. I typically don't like objects made of the American Flag but that little heart just summed up everything for me this year.
Our hearts left with Daddy when he left. but we are so proud of him and what he has been doing for our Country. AND I am so relieved he will be home soon. I tried not to think about him coming home because it seemed so far away and now every time I do I cry.
it's so hard to believe its real. it's so hard to believe that we will be whole again. it's so hard to believe we made it (almost)!
