"Stay strong"... Husband told me as I dropped him off at the air port. "Don't cry. I love you! And I will see you soon!"
"You can't MAKE me stay strong thankyouverymuch... you're leaving me- I know its not by choice- and I'm stuck here and I don't want you to go!"- I wanted to say. But I didn't. I said, "Be safe, I love you more." And I didn't cry- atleast not at the airport.
I tried so so hard to stay strong this whooooooooole week- and last night as we got into bed I just couldn't take it any more. I cried. And husband held me. And told me he loved me.
I am thankful that he isn't being deployed. I am thankful that it is only 3 weeks (the way I have been acting you would have thought that he was leaving for a year). I am thankful that he will still be in the US. I am thankful that I will still be able to talk to him- and that I get to visit him in a few days.
Why am I being such a baby about it? No matter how long husband leaves me for I think its always going to be hard for me.
One day at a time.
