facing the gritty and the real...journaling/scrapping fear.

journaling reads: It’s one of those things that is always there in the back of the minds of a military family. But it’s something we don’t readily talk about. It’s something we push from our minds. Somehow it’s just too big, too impactful…or maybe it’s just too possible. One thing I know for sure: it is one of my greatest and most terrible fears. We’ve buried friends and supported their (and our) loved ones. And as we held their hands, shared hugs, cried, and listened and prayed, I saw in them, my own potential pain. Because it could so easily be me in their shoes… The men in uniform at the door. The memorial push-ups. Your name in the paper. The folded flag. The sincere chorus of voices telling me “we are here for you”, “we will never forget”, when all I really want is…you. Home. Safe. All these things would mean my life would change in so many ways. In ways I hope I don’t ever have to face until we are happily old and grey: me coping without my best friend, bug without her daddy, everyone who knows you, without the light you shine.
