As some of you may know my husband is away for training to go overseas.. His mission: WAS to go to Iraq. It seemed like everyone I talked to said 'At least Iraq is pretty safe now, It could be Afghanistan. Its not very safe over there.' Well my husband went to get all his papers done and they were supposed to fly to Washington. Well they had problems and couldn't get them over there. They said if they didn't fly them out on Monday the mission would be scrubbed. So they set up flights and sent them in a few seperate groups. Well my husband was supposed to be on one of the last flights out. And they had mechanical problems. So Iraq mission is no longer. But now they sent him somewhere else to train.. for going to Afghanistan. When he told me that my heart dropped. He says he will be in a safe place but no matter what he says that thought will always be in my mind. I feel so sad. I don't know what to do or what to think.. We have 2 sweet little kids who miss their daddy and it makes it hard for me to look at them and talk about daddy without crying. I love him to death. We'd be lost without him. I was starting to feel ok about him being gone.. So how do I deal with it?
