Hello. I just joined the site. My husband left for his first deployment within the last few days. I signed up for motomail today and now I'm not sure how to start my first letter or what all to put in there.
I know I don't want to talk about the epic fit our daughter threw in the store and all the way home because I put the ducky back because she threw it at my face. :/ I don't want to talk about all the things I have to get done in the next two weeks before I move. I don't want to talk about anything stressful or negative.
At the the same time, I'm not sure how much I want to talk about our daughter's progress on things because I know he will feel like he is missing out(because he is). I don't know if I should talk about when he comes home. I'm just at a complete loss as what to write about other than I love him and miss him so much.
So, what do you ladies write when your husbands are deployed? Do you have any suggestions for topics? What about length of your letters? Do you talk about the hopes for your future, the plans to obtain those hopes?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully I can get some good advice here.
