I agree! I think it is getting harder. As our children get older his time away becomes more noticeable to them and they miss him more. His job is getting more stressful for him as he progresses up the ranks which makes it more stressful for us as a family.... i.e. more time at work and more working at home (pesky phone calls mid-sentence.. GRR!).So, yes getting harder. I am just getting better at dealing with it all.
GRRR! Gotta add that one! I think you said it best "I am just getting better at dealing with it all". I think I' getting there.
Bless your heart, I can't imagine. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Thank you Angie. It's nice to know others support us. Luckily he left for training and will be back. We still have time before he is officially gone.
