Missing My Airman

My husband left for BMT on May 1. It was a tearful goodbye on my part, but thankfully he was very strong for me. Since he left, I've been doing really well. I've been keeping busy with work, friends/family, hobbies. I got my first call from my husband last Thursday night. He got 15 minutes!! It was amazing. He sounded good -- he was even laughing at times. He's doing well, much better than most. I was very relieved to hear that he's still "invisible" and was not given any leadership positions. But my strength gave out today, Mother's Day. I went to see my mother-in-law this morning, but she was working, so I left her gift with my sister-in-law. It was tough being with family at my parents' house without my husband, and as the day wore on I was just aching for him. And then he called! We got another 7 minutes, and I needed it so badly today. After the first call I was thrilled, but today it hurt. I'm missing him terribly, wishing I could help him. He's feeling lousy from all the shots, and he's understandably tired. It's just been a hard day, and I needed to share with people who understand. We still have a ways to go, and some friendly feedback would be appreciated.
