My ♥ is overseas

The holidays just aren't the same without Captain Husband.  I am so acutely aware of his absence at all times, even though it's getting hard for me to remember what it was like to inhabit the same space with him on a daily basis.  Time does funny things like that.  I hate that he's going to miss out on Sammy's first Christmas, though I assuage those feelings by reminding myself that Sammy really won't know any differently, and with any luck, we'll be spending most of our Christmases from here on out together as a family.  I try not to dwell on my feelings of loneliness by staying as busy as possible--hence all of the road trips and other diversions; so far, that seems to be working.  Plus Sammy and Sandy both do a pretty good job of keeping me occupied.

Taking a page from Goodnight Moon, who created an awesome "Deployment Survivor" badge, I've created a badge for all of the people who have a significant other that is currently overseas--deployed, on an unaccompanied tour, and so on and so forth.  Here's how it will work--grab the badge and then click here to link your blog up via Mr. Linky (I've created a static page so that the badge and link-ups will be easy to find).  This way we can all support each other while our loved ones are away!

I have a great deal of respect for the sacrifice that your family and other military families make for our country. Sammy has parents to be very proud of!
