The longest I was away from home was 6 months on an aircraft carrier. That wasn't a whole lotta fun since I'm such a family guy, who loves his kids and wife. That's the main reason I left the service. I couldn't let my kids grow up without me being there for them every day. But they're all grown up now, and I'm almost an empty nester.

It's a sad world where when a partner is away, the other partner might feel frightened, either for themself, or for the spouse who is not at home. I long for a world wherein everyone can feel secure in mind, body, and personal property. But it probably won't happen in my lifetime. Indeed, I don't think there was ever such a world, at least not on this planet.

But we can each of us do our best to spread decency through our actions and example. That way, the world is just a little better place.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow, when DH is back again.. but he will be away again for the weekend to help at his friends farm.. you know, that'S some kind of small holiday for him.. he comes back completely relaxed.. and mostly all fingers are still in place.

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
