Five Minute Friday: Remember

Remembering the tears as we had to say goodbye.

Remembering the sleepless nights filled with worry.

Remembering why the leaving must happen, why good men must go to war.

Remembering all the small moments missed, all the times thoughts wanted to be shared and couldn't.

Remembering the smiles and shouts of joy as he
walked through the door last night.

Daddy is home.


  1. What a treasure to have had a safe, sweet homecoming. Such a good story, Erin!

  2. I love the potent power of this.

  3. Wow.. so everyone computer will short out today... because as I read this and get to the last line...tears just jump out of my eyes.
    be blessed,

  4. YAYYY!!!! We're on the verge of a leaving, so this reminder of life on the flipside buoys me.

  5. Thanks all!! And digtoesin.....good luck with the leaving. Soon enough the absence will be over.
