Tick Tock

We are counting hours, now. Minutes and seconds, even. There will be cookie baking and banner making tonight. There will be favorite food grocery-shopping. I will graciously scootch all of my clothes over to one side of the closet and leave at least one foot of linear space available for the three pieces of clothing he is bringing home.

But there will not be sleeping. No, there will not be sleeping between now and tomorrow morning when we race from the American Legion to the soccer field to the car to the airport to him.

And there might not even be breathing. But I’ll try.

    I am so happy for you and your family. A bit envious too, we have a year to go.(5 months down, 12 to go) It has been a long and tough year, and you have grown in so many ways for it. Enjoy the homecoming, and don’t forget to breathe! And thank you so much for sharing with all of us. (((HUGS)))

    Just remember to breathe; deeply, and often. It helps. I can practically guarantee he’s doing the same, Lori.
