I miss you…

My husband recently left for a business trip.  Prior to his departure, he jokingly listed off all of the things I would miss about him:

  • Snoring
  • Restless legs
  • Long bathroom visits with electronics in tow
  • The TV being on 24-7 when he is home

There were others, but you get the idea.  While I could do without some of those things, here is what I did miss:

  • The way our sons face lights up and he yells out “dadddddyyyyyyy” when he sees him come home from work.
  • The hug my husband gives me every morning and every night
  • Help with the chores
  • Watching him play with our son
  • A caring ear to listen
  • Hearing him say “I love you”
  • Help wrestling our son in church (which I really needed this week!)
  • The way he wraps his arms around me while i’m cooking dinner
  • His uncontrollable excitement during a football game
  • Having someone else to cook for
  • His voice, smile, touch, etc…
  • Feeling safe just knowing he was home
  • Walks as a family

I could go on, but you get the point.  I am a lucky woman and looking forward to his arrival home today.

It is so true that absence makes the heart grow fonder.  I am grateful for FaceTime, even with the 8 hour time difference, we were able to talk face to face.

One thing that my husband has done a few times now is secretly leave random notes around the house before he leaves.  

It truly makes a huge difference in my mood while he’s gone.  Who wouldn’t smile when they open the spice cabinet and see this?
