I love you because I miss you and I miss you because I love you
I marvel at people whose husbands are home everyday. Well, maybe not during the day, but you see him everyday, either in the morning or the evening or both. On one hand it's great because you see him, the kids see him, he's able to help with breakfast or baths in the evening or dinner or bedtime, or whatever. On the other, he's there. If you know me, you know I LOVE my husband. I love him more than anything else on the planet and would scream it from the rooftop if I could. But honestly, I think I feel that way about him because... wait for it... I don't see him everday. I know some people won't understand that and that's alright but I just can't imagine feeling the same way I do now if I didn't get a chance to miss him as often as I do. I also think that because he is gone for longer periods of time than most dads, he gets a chance to miss us too so he's SUPERDAD when he is home and that just fuels my fire for him. The kids don't know any differently, this is how our life has always been and will always be. I also think that's why I really value our time together because between the firehouse and LifeSaverCPR Chris is so stinkin' busy that time with all 5 of us with no distractions doing something fun is pretty rare. So, if you see your husband everyday and you have mad love for him, good for you! I'm not sure I could be so gracious. Love you when you're here, miss you when you're gone, LOVE you when you're here again!
