Especially with DH on Shore Duty, I forget….
I forget the reality of the war going on. That the consequences of that are real. That people are dying. That those people are husbands and fathers and sons. That they are real and substantial like my husband. That their families are robbed of them.
I forget. Until I read things like this and this. And I am undone. I cannot afford to forget. I cannot dishonor these men and women and the people who loved them that way. Pray for this Marine Wife, this first time mother who is slapped in the face with the unfairness of her husband being taken away. And pray for the family of this beautiful girl who overcame so much.
