Just a short entry...

I woke up this morning to a very sweet email from my husband. I had sent him a picture of Zac and Axl that I took yesterday, and he was so excited to get it. I see the changes in the kids, and I am here daily. He can't see it except through pictures, and when I send them the impact is so much more. I could FEEL the excitement in him through his words. At the briefing for the soldiers and their families that we would not be getting the same soldier back that we sent over, and now my husband and I BOTH believe it. I will be getting a kinder, gentler man, that VALUES his family and the time we have together.....


  1. It is so good that you can send emails and pictures and get his reaction a whole lot faster than through the mail! I'm sure he misses you as much as you miss him, if not more!

  2. Yes it is Sharon. I do miss him, but the emails and phone calls sure do take the edge off!

  3. I like that Geri....

    Something to be said for the email and phone communications. You actually seem to be able to express things that, in person, we take for granted. I'm hopeful that when you have your soldier back home, you will both be able to enjoy the extra communication avenues you are building during these tough months apart.

    Really nice post.
