I feel as though the tears are just barely hidden behind my eyes, that at any moment they could fall and I will be unable to stop them. I think about my best friend (my husband) leaving for 3 months very, very soon and I want to curl up in ball and weep. We've been best friends for 20 years now, and although we've been apart before it's been a long, long time! I already feel a little piece of my heart breaking and I'm not sure how much it's going to hurt when he leaves, but I know it will...how can it not!
This Sunday our church will have a commissioning service for him and he will say good-bye. Next week our daughter will graduate from high school and we'll spend the next four days together as a family then he will jump in his truck and head off to training.
I know sometimes he worries about me and how I will do when he leaves, especially when I lay on his shoulder and cry because I just can't help it. I pray I can be strong for him and our children. I'm so thankful I have a heavenly Father who brings comfort, peace and strength. I can't even imagine going through this without the Lord in my life!
