Gratituesday | Reconnection

Today I say goodbye to Tommy, again. On one hand, I sure appreciate that the Army gives these little breaks in the year. A 4-day pass here, 2-week R&R there... it's a nice way to break things up and to give us a little something to look forward to. At the same time, it sure is hard saying bye again. It is always the first few days after a goodbye that are the hardest , so this day is extremely bittersweet.

But, we've had a fantastic weekend together. We travel and experience new things very well together. When we're both living under the same roof and our priorities get skewed or we aren't connecting well, we take off for a weekend together and reconnect. It's something that works very well for us. And this weekend was no exception.

Todays' Gratituesday is simply a gratefulness for reconnection. It is refreshing, hopeful, and healing. This weekend was all of those things and exactly what we both needed. It has been heavenly.

So I'll leave it at that. I've got about 9 hours left with this man before he's off for 9 months. I gotta go soak it up!
