so i've just found out that my husband of only 2 1/2 months will be going to Iraq with the National Guard this coming December...
he will be gone for a year
i'm not really sure how i'm feeling at this moment, but there are a million things running through my mind
we knew that there was a possibility of him being called overseas, but we didn't know when or even if it would happen at all
then there was a rumor about him going in November, but as Paul says, there are always rumors flying around when you're in the Guard
the December date is confirmed though...we will have Christmas day together, and then he leaves the next day
i didn't sleep much last night, even though i took some Benedryl to help with that...it didn't work...
i cried a lot, but not really because i'm scared or worried...i know God is going to keep Paul safe because there is a lot more the Lord has planned for us on this earth...i cried because i just cannot imagine being away from him for so long
right now he's gone for his annual 2 weeks summer training...its only been since Friday that i saw him when he left, and i already feel completely lost without him
i'm not sure what else to write at the moment...i'm still kind of in shock i suppose
however, all prayers, mainly for him, are more than appreciated...
