    Thank you for sharing this difficult time. Your and your husbands service is greatly appreciated. It's because of people like him, that puts meaning in freedom.


    (Maybe you could start a "countdown" thread so that 'us quilters' can help with some moral support and prayers.)

    God Bless you and our family, it's been 3 years since my Son went and came home and I still feel that pain and worry when I see yet another leave. Tell your husband to stay safe his job is to protect and come home safely to his family.

    sorry you feel so sad...being a military dep. ALL Of my life, we were taught at an early age that Daddy going away was a GOOD thing...because daddy was going to make being HERE a much better place!
    Now a days, with DH retired, I MISS those days...I would sell the dogs if only Dh would go on a 6 month deployment! I need some ME time in MY house..heheheh

    Hope the time flies quickly and that you can find the Happiness in what he is doing for his family and for his country!

    Wishing you and your husband (and your families) safety, courage, and good health.

    Sometimes it's almost as challenging to be the one(s) left behind - - -

    As usual I have tears in my eyes. I cannot see a soldier in uniform without crying. Not sure why. My husband was in the National Guards for 14 years, spent 2 separate months in Germany for training with 3 young kids at home. He never saw war. My brother is in the Army since 1973 and served several tours of duty over the years. I love parades because of the men and women in uniform marching. I think I am sad and happy at the same time as I have such a huge personal pride in what they do for us.
    Please thank your husband for the honorable act of courage and dedication he does for all of us! May God Bless you and your family always!

    Adding my thoughts and prayers for a safe return! When I was first married (44 years ago!) my husband was on a submarine. I can still remember the ache every time he left. May those 200 days race by quickly!

    A huge thank you on behalf of myself and my family. It's because of men like yours and their families that we enjoy the freedoms and opportunities we have today. May he come safely home to you in 198 days.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Our prayers are with you!
