My husband is back. Can I say how happy I am?! What a difference to know that my partner is here! I get really lost without him sometimes. Mike has such a great way of balancing my emotion and giving positive feedback and direction. It really helps. When he's gone I get disoriented. What a blessing to have him home safe and sound.
And to all you wives and moms out there who have husbands that are gone regularly (whether navy or business trips, etc.) or you are single and doing this by yourself- I APPLAUD you! I don't know how you do it!
