The Love at the End of the Tunnel

As an Army wife, I face the inevitable fact that there are going to be times, probably several a year, where my husband is going to be away for any given period of time. Whether it be training, field time or even deployments, I deal with him being gone anywhere from a few days to an entire year. As it happens, right now is one of those times of separation.

Being separated from hubby right now has proved certainly interesting amongst my spectrum of emotions, and last night reminded me that it's only human to miss him, especially while I'm pregnant. I was feeling beyond sorry for myself...tearing up at the thought of going to sleep alone again, and at the thought that we still have 7 weeks before he's home. I couldn't help but feel sad. And then all of the sudden this beautiful thought crossed my mind...

Come November, I won't be alone when the hubby is away anymore. There will be someone to hug and kiss and smile at. There will be someone to love and snuggle and feel needed by.

How amazing. At the end of these long 40 weeks, I will not only be an Army wife, but an Army mommy. I will have someone who needs me...just as much as I need them, sometimes more so than ever. I'm going to have a little person to share our incredible life with, even when hubby can't always be here. How lucky am I?

At the end of these 40 weeks, it's the love at the end of the tunnel.
