Whenever I would think about a Military, Navy, or Airforce Wife, I didn't know how they could stand being home alone. Seeing your husband only a few months out of the year, missing holidays, birthdays, and even their babies being born is not something I could ever imagine doing in my life. Now, being apart from Michael for ONLY 3 weeks, I have come to realize what they go through. Granted, it is only 3 weeks out of our 3 years of Marriage we have EVER been apart, but Dang, it is not the easiest thing to do.
I can't even recall having a good night sleep since we separated for this short time. When you have had that extra person in your bed that, when you wake up in the middle of the night and can't seem to get comfortable in any position, you can always find a way to be comfortable when turning over and just snuggling with that someone. It is a feeling that most, hopefully all, wives will know what I am talking about. It is the feeling of knowing that even though they are not awake but automatically embrace you in their arms, you find yourself asleep in a matter of seconds.
Not having this has been so hard for me to deal with. I really do respect the wives of those that serve and stay faithful to them. It is such a hard thing to do. And they do it most of their marriage until they are released. I can't do that. I like having my husband right here with me everyday. I don't care if we don't even talk to eachother the whole time as long as we are together.
Sorry for a boring post this time. I just felt like writing a little bit this time. I am totally Missing my husband and want him home. Soon, just a few more days!
