And He’s Gone…

in Deployment, Q

The last 2 weeks flew by and were exactly what Q and I needed. Rest. Relaxation. Laughing. Crying. Socializing. Watching TV all day. Hiking. Running. Napping. Sleeping in. Kissing. Shopping. Cooking. Drinking. Eating. And most importantly, enjoying each other’s company.

This morning I said goodbye to Q for the next 4 1/2 months. As hard as it was, knowing we are more than halfway through the deployment made it so much easier. Below are a few more pictures from Q’s arrival that still make me cry.

I love those pictures! 🙂 The end of R&R is so bittersweet. Sad to see them walk away again, but the end is just that much closer. I’m glad that you enjoyed the time together! Stay strong, you are doing an awesome job! I hope the next 4 1/2 months pass quickly!!

Fret not- he told me before he left on Sunday that he was going to punch the beard of an enemy’s face in your honor. How many girls can say that about their man?

Now you can start ticking off the days for his return & your next adventure together with the return.The days will go faster then you think as Im sure you continue to send those loving well thought out care packages with that special touch he looks forward to.
You have a fabulous support system with family & friends & genuinley care about both of you. Cherish the memories you made & count on new ones still yet to come. So much to look forward to in lifes blessings. You are a very strong lady.

I hope my English is not so bad, I know that sometimes I make mistakes ^ ^ What I meant is that I am wholeheartedly with you. They’re so hard to pass the time. But I’m sure you’re not alone, there are Bentley and Shelby ^^
