Somebody’s someone is coming home today ❤
It makes me so happy to hear that soon someone will be reunited with their loved one after not seeing them for so long. I bet the excitement and butterflies are everywhere today.
I cannot wait for my day. It seems so far away but I know that time is ticking away and eventually, my day will come.
I was thinking the other day… I don’t want people to think that I am writing for the whole “woe is me” thing. Or whatever that saying is. It is not a competition here.
I don’t care if your person is gone for two days or two years, it is hard. Dealing with life without your person is hard. Two is always better than one I say. [of course not when it comes to washing dishes 😉 ]
But speaking of dishes, I oddly miss the feeling of taking care of someone. Making dinners for two, washing all those inside out t-shirts and socks, wondering why the laundry smells so sweaty and occasionally trying to fuss about it. I definitely won’t say I have ever taken him for granted because I have always thanked him for being amazing. But trying to be the woman of the house is hard.. and I only have puppy children. Like I would rather cook a meal and do his laundry every day than have to mow the grass and eventually try to figure out how to use a weed whacker (I still have no idea what it is called). AND pump my own gas. I think what I miss the most is him getting my gas for me. (it sounds really snotty, I know. I am really ashamed to admit it) I absolutely hate standing at gas stations pumping gas. People are so strange.
I mean, let’s admit it. Once all those things are gone, you miss it even when you think you hate it. And because he has always known you better than you know yourself, you learn more about yourself than you ever thought was possible.
But I have learned that I can do it by myself. Not that I like it…
To all the women doing it alone, I salute you. You are the strongest of them all. And YOU. ARE. AMAZING. (you are doing great and you are doing your best. Even if you make mistakes, THAT IS OKAY. Because you are still amazing and you are still doing your best.)
This post was a bit all over the place. But you know, so is my life right now.
