Army Wife Deployment Life

Updated on July 1, 2010

Deploy again? What?

So, my husband is getting ready to deploy again. I understand that "everything happens for a reason", but it is so hard on emotions of a child; tears that were shed when he left and continue for months. Explaining to them daily that daddy can't tuck them in that night. Asking for daddy when they wake up in the morning and all you can show them is a picture. The vacant spot at the dinner table nightly. Soccer games missed. First steps missed, First words spoken missed. Birth of a new son missed. I am an Army wife and these (and many more) are all things my family experienced when my husband was on his last deployment.

I can honestly say that I am NOT looking forward to this upcoming deployment (but then again, what wife really does look forward to it). There will be no more watching the news on CNN to see what is happening over there and hearing of the deaths, for if I did, I will make myself sick with worry. Another year (or possibly more) without my husband, the man of my dreams, my soul mate. I will survive this… I am Army (wife) Strong!
