easy.

days like yesterday make it all too easy to miss hubby. at church, at least a handful of people usually ask "how is jesse?" which i expect. but yesterday there were more questions i don't usually expect like "where is he?", "how long has he been gone?", "how much longer will he be gone?", and my favorite "isn't it hard?". and just all of the other questions from people who missed the explanation the first time around. having to remember how little we've seen each other tends to pull at the heart strings. especially with the two facts i give to summarize our relationship..."we've been together three years and the longest we've been in the same state at the same time is about three months" and "we've been married seven months and have seen each other forty-five days in that seven months". usually i'm okay at just rattling off the facts but yesterday i processed them before i could stop myself. its just rough sometimes.

Hang in there girlie. Remember God's got both of you and your marriage in the palms of His hands. I love you!
