Things I Miss

I was sitting last night when I should have been sleeping thinking about all the things I have missed while my husband is deployed. Lack of sleep thanks to this nagging cough has allowed a lot of thinking time. So I compiled a list 1. I miss the random times he walks by and kisses my forehead while I  clean or cook. At time just sitting and ... Read More →
