Today I am taking a break from my usual posting schedule to dedicate my time to what is most important to me – my husband. Of late, with work, writing, getting our house in order and my own socializing with family and friends, I have neglected to take the time to do many of the small detail items that have gone without saying in the past and that I know are important to him. They are also important to me.
During his first deployment, I would write to him at least once a week and I would often try to send him little miscellaneous packages, however small. These are the things that let him know how much he is missed here at home. This time around, while he is in Kuwait, I will remember that Facebook and email, and even our phone calls almost daily will never take the place of the personal effort that I put into a writing or a package.
Tonight, I remember what is important to me.
