Offical word came through this evening that my husband is in fact moving closer to the heat. I haven't heard from him personally, but he will be leaving sometime soon to move to an area "where he's needed". This move could be for anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months; my only hope is that wherever he goes, he's safe. And that maybe he gets to contact me somehow. As I joked with my father-in-law tonight, our communication system sure can't get any worse! Maybe his moving will have some advantages.

Hell, I can hope so, right?

I can't say I'm not worried -- he's my best friend and my whole life -- but all I can do is remind myself that he's smart and prepared. That thought gives me the confidence and fortitude I need to accept his new mission.

And if there's something I've learned from life, it's that there's always someone who has it worse.

Time to listen to I Won't Back Down again...

1 Girl, you are one brave person. I will spend a significant time today praying for you and your husband...may god protect him and keep him safe. And may he bless and comfort you until you're together again. Thank you for your courage and sacrifice. And, thank your good man, too.

2 My heart has been so heavy the past few days. Our soldiers and their families have been in my thoughts and prayers on a pretty much constant basis. I just wish I could do more! I feel like this is so significant that we should all be making huge sacrifices to see it through. Sounds silly, but I'd feel better if we were feeling it on the home front more - rationing or something! Sometimes I feel guilty that my Arabic-speaking ex-reservist hubbie didn't re-up several years ago; his old unit is in Baghdad now. Thanks again for your sacrifices and determination to stand strong. You all are in my prayers. (Beth looked like spam, so I posted this for her.)
