I Miss Him Tonight...


This is my darling husband and me taken almost 2 years ago now...It's a picture of a picture so the quality isn't wonderful, but this is the picture I look at when I miss my husband...when the pull of his classes and work steal him away from me. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt how very important it is for him to finish school...and he will be done this December...but there are times, like this evening when I just miss him. I just want to hang out with him and hold his hand.

I joke that our time apart is one thing that keeps our marriage strong, and I do believe that...however, I also know that we are paying a price for his education and our future. The price is our lack of togetherness on our joined journey. He is almost as much water to my soul, as God, which results in a tangible thirst. He is my better half, the part that truly completes my spirit, my soul, my heart!

I dedicate this to Paul, my God-selected, perfect-for-Kim husband!

I love you honey!

That is so sweet and you two are beautiful. It's nice to see the face of someone from whom I'm receiving encouragement.

Hang in there on the "educational absences." We just came through this with my husband completing his Ph.D a year ago. There were semesters when he had to go to class 3 nights a week, and study the rest of the time. It was often lonely even when he was in the same room with me. He was there but not there, you know? I really understand what you're saying, and believe me when I say, it's worth it. You will come out on the other side of this period in time knowing that his degree was earned by you too.

Thank you for your encouragement.

Some days when I'm feeling like "I just can't do this 1 more week" I am try to think of that AA thing...do it 1 DAY at a time or 1 HOUR at a time...SUnday was rough...hopefully today will be better.
