sending my heart away...

yesterday i had to say good bye to my dh and send him off to war. and it doesn't matter how many times you have to do something like that, it never gets easier!

the girls are not handling it well right now. i guess you could say we are all lost.

hopefully in a couple days, we will regroup and start moving forward so that we can hurry up this next year and all be together again.

all though we knew he was going to be leaving, we had been told his window for leaving was from the 15th when we found out monday morning that he was leaving tuesday, it was salt in the wound. and the worst part is his unit never bothered to inform him. how awful is that? it was by accident that he found out to begin with! doesn't give me any faith for the support any of us will receive from his unit for the next year.

please continue to keep all of our military overseas and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

Aww man, girl, I'm sending you a big hug! My sis's bf of 2 yrs is shipping out soon (it's the first time while they've been together) and she's all torn up.

I'll keep him in my prayers for a safe and uneventful tour.

awww girl, that really stinks for them to tell yall the day before. I would've been overly torn up about that. My hubby being military for 22yrs...I know your pain. So, without a doubt girl, you know you have my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully he'll get leave in six months or so??? Do they allot that for Army? At any rate girl, if there's anything you need just holler! Love ya
