You see, I know I can handle the lonely nights, the missed phone calls, and seeing other wives and husbands enjoying life together. But will my boys understand that their Daddy still loves them? Do they know that their Daddy can't wait to wrestle and talk with them? Do they know the sacrifice that their Daddy is making AND the sacrifice they themselves are making? I pray daily that they won't cave in and regress due to Mike being gone, and I know that God will fill in and be Daddy for them. As I prepare these "extras" for the boys I will share the neat ideas about how to keep the family together. Thank God for people out there who care about military families and devote their jobs to making life easier for us!
