Dude. I just miss my husband. I miss my best friend. I'm not ashamed to say I miss him when he's just been gone a week. Hell, I tend to miss him when he's just at work 10 miles away!
I met another Marine wife this week, and she really make me think. It's OK to miss the love of your life-no matter where he is, how long he will be gone, or how long he as already been gone for.
IT'S OK!!!!!! Missing him doesn't make you weak. It makes you human. We are strong women already. We don't need to pretend to be fine, when all we want to say is "I miss him a lot today". Because every military wife already know exactly how the other one feels-we don't need to pretend.
