Army Wife Blues

So I'm feeling a little blue tonight.  In the past week, I have attended the Memorial Service for a 2/1 CAV Soldier who was killed in a motorcycle accident, attended a funeral for a former Red Dragon battalion commander, received news of two Soldiers from our brigade who were killed in action in Iraq, and said goodbye to my neighbor and wonderful friend as they jet off across the pond to a new assignment. 

All were emotional in their own right and have me feeling a bit drained.  I am missing my Soldier, hearbroken for Army Families who received the worst possible news about their loved one, and saddened thinking about my friend who is moving from being about 6 yards away to another continent away.

Ugh.

The sun will come out tomorrow ...

  1. I am feeling the same way... different list of reasons, but one similar downfall... missing my man on top of it all. Keep your head up!

  2. My best friend (and next door neighbor) moved away 3 years ago, so I understand that pain. I'll be honest that it took a long time for the pain to even dull, but God has been faithful to bring new friendships to fill that void. Praying for you, my friend!
