This is so hard.
I am going to do this.
I will be strong.
If not for me, then I will be strong for him.
Even though I am letting this tear me apart for the moment, I will get through this.
I just have to keep telling myself that he is coming back to me.
It's only for a little while, right?
I can do this. I really have no choice.
I will do this.
I will cry, I already know this.
I will scream, and rant, and rave, and blame everyone and everything for him being gone.
I will survive this.
I will learn to live with this.
I will hate this.
I will love him with all that I have.
I will support him.
I will make this as easy as I can for him.
I will wait for him. With my arms wide open, a smile on my face, and a tear running down my cheek.
I will get through this deployment!
With him, and for him.
