One Month Down, ? More to Go

One month has passed since Keith left. We are surviving...some days better than others.

The boys are doing okay. They love seeing Daddy on Skype, and were very excited when a package arrived with new airplanes for each of them. Jackson, of course, is the easiest. He is just too young to understand. Tyler, on the other hand, has his good days and bad days...and quite the active imagination too. He has told people anything from his daddy is in jail, to daddy had a car wreck and is in the hospital, to daddy is being a soldier for Jesus, and on and on. It has been quite embarrassing a few times when he has announced to a complete stranger that his daddy is in jail. Sometimes I explain, sometimes I just smile and walk away.

We are keeping busy; probably a little too busy some days. But it is just so stinkin' lonely here without my BFF. =) I have noticed that I stay up a lot later than normal in order to chat with him, and therefore I have been a lot more tired lately. Now with the time change, I probably will not be staying up to talk to him at night, because it would be around 2 am here when he gets off work now. I think that might be pushing my limits on sleep.

A lot of people have asked when he is coming home. The only answer I have is I don't know. I'm not trying to be vague, I'm being honest. We have heard anything from June to August, but I am just waiting for him to call and tell me he's getting on a plane to come home. That's when I'll believe it. Until then, it's all just a guessing game. I feel like a pawn to the Air Force.

So anyway, here we are. Surviving. Taking life one day at a time. Rejoicing in the goodness of the Lord and looking forward to being reunited as a family.

It is understandable that these times are difficult for you and your family. I feel sure that many people are praying each night for OUR military families. The back home families are doing their part, as their spouses are. God be with you and yours.
