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.

  1. I know it is hard for you to be all alone. You and Jonathan are in our thoughts and prayers. I know you are anxious to see him again. Hopefully when his deployment time is up, he can stay home for good. Praying for this time to fly by so you two can be together again. Take care Brantley.

  2. Praying for you Brantley - and marking off the days.

    But I must say that I LOVE the way that you LOVE my boy. You are a treasure.

    That poem is good too.... thanks for sharing today.

    love you

  3. i wish you could call princess, i miss your voice too. soon enough though i will be home. I love you darling.

  4. I've just recently started "following" you and your husband's blogs...I saw that one of my friend's moms was following his and had to get in on it. I cannot eimagine what y'all are going through, but I wanted to let you know that I'll be praying for both of you and looking forward to updates!
