My advice/words of wisdom to military wives/mommies going through similar situations would to of course try and keep busy to keep your mind from running terrifying thoughts, take as many pictures/videos as possible because even though your husband cannot be there he can still see all the changes and new steps from the pictures and videos. Last but not least, find a great support system within friends who are also part of the military experience. Family is wonderful, but if they are anything like mine they have no clue what struggle you are going through, and another military wife knows just how you feel and will be by your side helping you fight the battles at home while your best friend is fighting for you over seas."
