Can I Please Call???

So tonight is one of those nights when I want to pick up the phone and call Jonathan. That is one thing I took for granted before. I had never been a person to want to talk on the phone....until Jonathan left. Now, I don't want to him to hang up. I dread the end of our phone conversations. I just so badly want to dial his number and hear that beautiful voice. Although, I did get to talk to him for a good bit today online. It was so nice to have an actual conversation other than the 2 minute conversations. I love it, but it also makes me realize what I'm missing.

So, I'm sitting here with my dogs missing my husband. I thought I would get used to this feeling.....but I don't think anyone can get used to it. I love you and miss you Jonathan!


I hate to watchEach time you leave
And I hide from you
How much I grieve
I know it’s your duty
And you will go
But once you are gone
I will miss you so
I know you’ll come home
As soon as you can
But right now you’ll deploy
Like an honorable man
So I’ll keep things together
Till you can come back
But, this is where you belong
Not some desert in Afghanistan
Yet, I do understand
Why you risk you’re life
For that’s a Soldier’s job
And I’m a Soldier’s wife.
