I can't even begin to talk about the roller coaster of emotions I was feeling for the last couple of months. I was/am sad, nervous, scared, confused and so many other things I am sure you could imagine. I broke down a few times and I am just fortunate that Chris was there to talk to at the time.
It is one week later and yes I am still scared and nervous but like Chris keeps saying, "he is good at his job" and I believe him. I trust he will do well out there and I believe that his soldiers will do the same.
So what I am concentrated on now is to plan a Christmas dinner at my home with a few friends, so we can remember those that cannot be home for the holidays. I sort of wish I had an address to send my husband things. Christmas will come a little later for him, but he doesn't mind.
Another day down and one day closer to seeing him again.

I want to thank everyone who has been sending me messages and their inspiring words. It has meant so much to me.
I also want to take a moment now to remember those who lost their lives in the horrific massacre that occurred in Connecticut, may they find peace. God bless their families during this time.
