The title really says it all. These last couple of days have been extremely hard for me. Especially after speaking with SSM and learning of the death's of five more soldiers from Noah's unit.

What I miss most is that great big ole grin on his face. I miss hearing him speak his mind, (wonder where he gets that from). I miss hearing him say what's for supper, is it chicken? Everything is always chicken to him. LOL...I miss being able to tell him in person to be safe, and don't be speeding. I miss being able to pick up the phone and call and say "What are you doing"? I miss being able to aggravate him by taking pictures all the time. I miss his laugh, even though it can last for hours at a time. I even miss hearing that MOTO crank up. Can you believe that Michael. I could even go on a ride right now, that's how much I miss you.

Most of all, I love you, I miss you and I want you to come home soon.

Hopefully now that he has made it back to his FOB safely, I can rest a little easier and not worry so much.

oh, girl... we all know exactly how you feel... that ache that never goes away when they are deployed... calculating the time it is there... wanting to see them walk through the door... and say, "Hey, Ma!" Hang tough there, Stacy... We're with you! {{{{HUGS}}}}

It's almost over, Stacy..He'll be home soon!

The picking up the phone is the hardest thing to be without. How many times I have had things that I wanted to ask dan and I wished I could just pick up the phone and ask.
Can you believe I miss laying in bed and waiting for that garage door to go up in the middle of the night? That is when I could sigh a breath of relief knowing Dan was home and he was safe. Now I check my sitemeter or his blog every morning. That is what lets me know he survived another day.
{{{{BIG HUG}}}}to you Stacy. I know what you are saying.
Praying Michael stays safe and comes home soon.

{{Hugs}} from here, Stacy! I imagine those empty arm feelings are much the same for moms as they are for us just get sucked in to the vacuum they leave behind; such a big space to fill!

Just keep crossing of those days & he'll be home soon!

And Michael, Yes Stay Safe!!

Stacy, I have heard over and over that the last month or so is the hardest because you know that he will be home soon. So don't think it's weird because it is very normal. You know I am here for you anytime that you need me. And I know just how hard it is. I have two soldiers that are very dear to my heart over there. Don't worry he will be home soon. And just know that he is also going through the same thing, he misses you so much and loves you so much. Call me if you need anything.
I love you, Elizabeth Ü

Stacy, I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I truly hope the remainder of your time apart will go quickly. Soon Michael will be back in your arms and the phone calls will be again.

Honor is yours and his,

Awww (((Stacy))) I know, I know.
Dear Lord, this has been a rough year. Our boys are on short time won't be long. I feel like I go through every day now just holding my breath and waiting for the day when he returns and I can hug his neck.

Hang in will hear from him soon.

I hope he comes home soon, too. My daughter's fiance leaves in early summer for his second tour, and she's already a basket case.
