I spoke to my husband this morning as he was preparing to leave his FOB. The next time I hear from him, he will have completed the first leg of his journey home for R&R. Although he has only been deployed for about 6 months, it has been closer to 9 since we lived under the same roof. I am trying to remain patient, but my excitement is starting to get the best of me. It is going to be so wonderful to have him home for a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see him and M interact. There is a big difference between a 6 month old who is barely mobile and a 1 year old who is into everything! I know he will love every second of chasing her around though, and I will love watching it!
I am just praying that he has a quick and safe journey home. Hopefully, I can be patient enough to survive the rest of the week!
