Writers Workshop - Incomplete

Its once again for Mamakats Writers Workshop the prompts this week are ....

The Prompts:

1.) Define goodness...joy...sorrow...and anger using pictures you've taken.

2.) Tomorrow I will do it differently. Here's how...

3.)Describe a 'sound' from your childhood. What was it? When did you hear it? What does it bring to mind?

4.) I remember when...

5.) Right now is the best time to start. What's your first step?

This week I chose Prompt 1.) Define goodness...joy...sorrow...and anger using pictures you've taken.

This was us a little over a year ago ... TOGETHER AND HAPPY!



The next day we woke up and sent our soldier off to war.



We cried - Actually we still do sometimes.



We tried to squeeze in enough hugs and kisses to last for 15 months - It didn't work - I would give anything to feel his arms around me right now.



We tried to be brave but we cried some more.



We have been incomplete for 377 days - this deployment is almost over and soon we will be complete once again!

OMG that brought a tear to my eye!
Thanks for putting up with missing him, freedom doesn't come free!
Looks like it won't be long now and he'll be home!

Over from Kat's

That post made me well up with tears too.

I know you are counting the days - and so is he.

This made me cry...I can't even imagine how difficult that must be for you sometimes. The pictures are wonderful. If you don't mind, I'd love to follow your blog and countdown to your special day with you. I'll also be praying for your husband and the whole family!

Visiting from Mama Kat's!

You should submit that picture of your daughter to some publication. It is so heartwrenching! I'm praying YFS and all the others come home safe, sound, and SOON!

Yes, it's even hard reading this (you've got me all welled up over here) knowing he's now home. 377 days is TOO long. Wishing you the best reunion!


HAH! My word verification is "matings"-- I won't even say it ;-)
