We Keep Moving Forward


Today is the day that my husband is heading overseas. He’s been gone for almost two weeks, but we’ve been able to talk to him on a daily basis. With his departure, we don’t know when we will here from him again. Most likely, it will be by the end of the week.

He’s had a long dwell time, so we knew deployment was in the near future. It’s been almost 5 years since he returned from his last deployment. While it’s been wonderful to have him here, the kids and I get comfortable with him here… and that makes the separation harder.

K has been near tears most of the day. She’s almost 11 and she understands more than I wish she did. She’s cuddled up with one of her favorite stuffed animals. I’m not sure what is worse… know that my husband has left or watching how hard it is for my children.

So tonight, she and I will watch “Meet the Robinsons” and, in the word of Walt Disney, “we keep moving forward”.
