As I drove home tonight, this song's lyrics hit me

Pride can stand a thousand trials
The strong will never fall
But watching stars without you
My soul cries

Today my husband said that he worries about me. I find that ironic, considering his situation is so much more worrisome than mine. He said he worries I'm bored and lonely without him; I told him I manage to keep quite busy but that I can't wait for him to come home so I can take care of him again. I'm watching stars without him, and my soul does cry at times, even though I wish it wouldn't.

I'm so thankful that blogging has brought me comfort. I have no children or pets, so the house can seem awful big for just me and that houseplant (which I did cut, by the way, and it looks great). But I haven't felt too lonely thus far because I can always run to the computer and visit all of my new friends. I'm grateful for each and every one of you. She who sends me postcards. He who made me a CD. She who wants to be a Marine. He who offered to tape the new episodes of Family Guy for my husband. She who makes commenting blunders. He whose family calls me his "girlfriend". She who thought she wasn't allowed to read my blog without my permission. He who's happy his children want to move to the US. She who IMs with me each morning. He who said I look cute in the tank. And all the rest who simply email and comment to express their support. I'm so grateful to have each and every one of you standing beside me through this deployment.

It makes watching stars without him a little more bearable.

2 I see that I am not the only one who thinks you're cute in the tank picture. It's one of the highlights of my day. I'm glad to be one of your supporters, as well. Just wish there was more I could do for you.

3 Sarah, this entry and the one above hit me hard. Graduation was 3 weeks ago, so all my friends but one are gone. I'm going to be moving out of this apartment soon, so I've started packing up Sgt. A's stuff, washing old uniforms, going through photos...having his stuff around at once comforts and magnifies the absence. But luckily, there are people in the blogosphere who are going through the same thing. Thanks again. PS--I've always loved that Des'ree song.

4 Yeah, Nerdstar worries about me, too. She hates that I worry about her, but I told her it's my job to worry, it's her job to stay safe! I usually have my yahoo IM running waiting to see if Nerdstar gets computer access, IM me sometime - bethlyn327
