Does Absence Make the Heart Grow Fonder?

Well, my dear hubby left today to go to a class for 4 weeks. Let me start this by saying we have been married for 12 years, and together for 14. So, with 3 children that love their Daddy with all their hearts, it will be a rough 4 weeks. We have a routine that we go by each day, and when it is time we look for Daddy, and it is fun for all of us when he comes home. Today was sad when the door never opened, and no little feet went running. But you know what? We are so lucky, there are so many families that Daddies and Mommies have been gone for so long at a time. Daddy went to Bahrain when my oldest was 8 months old, and was there for a year. And we have been so lucky that he has only had to go at 4-6 weeks at a time ever since. So, we pray for all of those Mommies and Daddies to be safe and come home to your families. To hold, love and adore your babies.

We are also lucky that we can call every day, and have video calls. So, we will trudge through and do school, and love whole heartedly. We will take care of each other, until our head of household comes home, and takes over again!! We will probably have another Poopa Palooza, and lots of picking on their sister. And I am SOOO sure that we will have lots of FUN. But we will miss Daddy, and we will welcome him home with open arms. Stay safe and blessed!!
