3 months is a long time though.  Its just hard to be away from someone you love.

Oh sweetie. I know how much you and your daughter are going to miss him. Are you able to write? If you can, send him a care package.

@cyndistar3: After a month, send him pictures of you and your girl. Have her make him a pic. I have a friend who deployed for a year and that is what his wife did.

We are all here for you.

*hugs*

ive been doing this for over a year, its tough i wont lie to you but at the end of the day you just have to pull through.

and the way i think about it is the sooner he leaves the sooner you get to see him again, count down the days, thats what ive done and i find it helps, it gives me something to look forward to, i hope it helps you too:)

PM me if you ever want to talk

Keep your chin up! Look at it like the first test of many. Soon, 3 months won’t seem so bad =]. You do get used to it and remember that it’s better for your family in the long run! A little pain now=better later

@cyndistar3: I know. I thought you had more time but because he is leaving earlier, he’ll be back earlier-and when he gets back you should be able to play outside with your girl.

*Hugs* I am sorry he’s leaving early. It’s really tough.

On the bright side? He’ll get home a month early, right? And that means maybe it will make planning the wedding a little easier?

Write a lot once he is up for it! And send lots of pictures! If you do a care package, double check what they are allowed to have so he won’t get in trouble. = )

We’re here for you!

Don’t believe him– write him as much as possible. I’ve been through bootcamp with a guy and it is harder on them emotionally than physically. He will cherish every single letter and be so very glad you wrote. As soon as they allow them to receive things send him gifts. cookies, gum, whatever. It means a lot. 

Bright side is that he’ll be home a month earlier than you thought, right? 🙂
