A few days ago, I was having a rough day. My husband was out of town for work, and my kids were driving me insane! I could not wait for those 2 days to be over so that when he got home I could pass the kids off and say "your turn". Imagine having dad be gone for an entire year! This family is having to say a temporary goodbye to their dad who is in the military. He will be gone for 12 months. It is something that is unimagineable to me. I admire their strength and their support for one another and I know that they will survive this and its only a small part of their journey.
