Today starts a new series- 365 Day’s Without You. If you saw my post last week about my husband going back overseas, today was the big day (his departure). This new series is my count down to my husband’s arrival back home. Each day I’ll have a new post for the next year. Each post will either be my thoughts or an image from the day.
Today: Day 001 – His Duffle Bags Are Packed
This morning came way to fast. The last few days have just blown by- faster than expected. I was better prepared this time, but it still hurts anytime someone you love leaves.
While Dan was getting ready this morning I had to walk outside. My eyes were tearing up and I did not want him to see me upset. He has a 20+ hour flight and the last thing I wanted was for him to be worried or upset.
When I opened the front door I could see his duffle bag and backpack laid beside the car. That’s when it really hit me that we only had a few minutes left together for a long time. I quickly pulled myself together and went back in to watch him snuggling the kids. I could not ask for a better daddy for my kids! I could see it in his eyes that his heart was hurting and it made me want to cry even more.
I was able to keep myself together and we said our goodby’s for now. The kids have done well today and are already asking me how many more days.
The next 364 day’s are going to be hard!
