My husband is leaving for Parris Island on Sunday and I'm having a harder time dealing with it than I thought. I'm trying to be strong when I'm around him but whenever he talks about it I just want to cry. I'm excited he is going and he is very excited he is going, but three months is a long time not being able to see him or talk to him. I'm very proud of him for joining the Marines. What can I do to be strong and to not be upset about him being gone? How do I keep myself busy?
