I walk with a friend most mornings. We joke that it is our therapy time. We hash out most any problem. When our walk is done, we’ve used up most of our allotted 15,000+ “girl words” for the day. This works well for me because I work from home. I don’t get an opportunity to use up all of my words everyday. 😉
Today, I walked alone. Our walks usually fly by, but today seemed like an eternity. I don’t get quiet too often. Too much silent time with my emotions isn’t a good thing. It hit me today that God made us to have relationships with Him and with other people. He did not make us to be alone. Granted, I’m not truly alone, but my husband, my best friend isn’t here.
We were able to Skype last week. He always tells me how he’s been working out. It’s one of his favorite things to do. (I know, he’s crazy! LOL) He leaned back and flexed his arm muscles… showing me the guns. I let out a little, swooning sigh. I miss those arms around me.
I manage to keep everything going around here pretty well. Some people may wonder how we military wives do it all. I tell you that with God’s help, you could do it, too. I don’t stop often because I don’t want to open up that bottle of frazzled emotions I keep hidden. I long for the day when I see my man so he can wrap those strong arms around me… so I can stop… I can breathe… I can let go…
