I've been married to my wonderful hubby now for almost 3 years. i have 2 kids from my first marriage and they have a very strong relationship with their stepdad. actually my x-husband and new husband get along great, which is wonderful for our children, so yes we are very pleased. But... my husband is getting deployed soon. He's been to iraq for like 18 months before he and i met, but we found out in April he is going to be deployed again and i honestly feel like i'm falling apart. I never knew it would be this hard. We are a religious family and we know God's will will be done, and we pray daily for the best, but i just cant shake those "unspoken fears". the days now are flying by, and i find myself just waking in the middle of the night and just looking at him and touching his shoulder. this may sound silly, but i've been told by everyone to just keep me and the kids busy when he is gone. i trust him beyond words, so that's not a fear.. thank god. i just dont know where to turn and the kids seem to be doing better than me, but they do have their dad to help as well which is a blessing.
