1/2 my heart...

Half my heart is leaving. How can it be so?

Yes, I knew what I was "getting in to". But that doesn't make leaving any easier.

As the troop surge in Afghanistan begins, so does my heartache.

My darling daughter is turning 1 year in a few days. Imagine a whole year of her life missed. She loves her daddy so much and he regretfully is being take away to help another country establish peace.

Its tough times in this house as we prepare to takeoff in our first deployment. Anxiety is high; tears keep flowing; anger and frustration are also thrown into the mix.

Just keep all troops in your minds. 4,000 families from our brigade are going to be deploying. I can't fathom how many solider's family & friends are saddened by this deployment.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I feel lucky that my hubby only goes for a few months at a time- a whole year? Wow. Take care and keep faith,
hugs,
