I've been seeing those commercials on TV for a show that spotlights the homecoming of service men and women who have been away from home for an extended amount of time. I can't watch those moments, even in the short clip of a commercial, without getting emotional.
I had six of those moments in my life. Six. Six patrols that Bubblehead did on the sub. Six tearful goodbyes. Six tearful homecomings. (Granted my husband wasn't going off to war, but these goodbyes were always with the understanding that I never knew when I would talk to him again, or when I'd see him again.)
And now thanks to these commercials, I feel inspired to write a little bit about these very emotional moments in my life.
And so I will.... (To be continued.)
