That’s how long I went without seeing my husband. I heard from him a few times. But, unfortunately, communication on submarines is VERY limited. I can go months without hearing from him or getting an e-mail.
Going into it, I thought I knew what to expect. We had gone 3 months apart before-several times in fact. I’ve had to move alone. I’ve had to buy a house alone. I’ve had to do ER visits alone. Would this be much different? Would I be okay this time?
What would I do on those days I needed him for guidance?
What would I do on those nights I just wanted a break from the kids?
What would I do in those moments I just longed for my best friend to be by my side?
I had no choice…I had to push on even if it felt impossible. I had to be strong. I had to be brave. I had to survive! My husband counted on me. My kids depended on me.
I became mommy AND daddy.
I become a Star Wars expert. I become a bug trapper. I become a lawn worker. I become a carpenter.
I became…stronger. Stronger than I ever thought I could be!
In those moments I needed him for guidance…I survived.
In those moments I wanted a break from the kids…I survived.
In those moments I longed for my best friend…I survived.
