In response to Beth's Ramblings...

Yet another Father's Day spent home alone while your hubby, their father, fights for his freedom once again. I simply have no words to describe how I feel for you Beth, being the wife left behind to carry on...for however long that may be. All the power to you because I know that I wouldn't be able to do it. You make great points in your ramblings and it really made me think hard about what you and other military wifes must go through (and husbands for that matter). To carry on, live life like it should be without that one person you need the most is something I have never and hope to never have to experience. A missing half of a relationship must leave you feeling empty and unsure of how you are to feel. Micah must feel that same empty as he knows firsthand of all Camden's firsts he is missing and how Evan is growing like a bad weed. For him to be sooo far away and leave his "normal" every day life to enter into a world of such uncertainty surely must take it's toll too. As far as I see it, seems like a lose-lose situation even though what he is doing is for his country. The yo-yo of ups and downs endured by both parties while their partner is deployed must be hard. The feeling you get hearing Micah's voice gives you goosebumps but reality kicks in and you realize he isn't coming home for a long while yet...leaves you down. That, in itself, is devastating to one's emotional state.

I cannot even fathom the thought of all you go through, first in preparation of him leaving, then him leaving for training, then his actual deployment, his service, and finally his coming home and re-entering into civilian words can say how you and he must feel. Such a great obstacle for you both to overcome...again. I pray to God that he is returned safely to us once again and that your lives can heal and return to the so-called "normal" state.

Keep strong Beth, you know you can. Your boys need you.
