When I have to travel for work, I miss my family. No matter how busy I am, something just doesn’t feel right, constantly. Like your heart is wearing a pair of underwear backward.
Additionally, the empty ache of separation is often made worse when I think of my little guy missing me. My wife’s a big girl, and has probably had more than her fill of me most of the time, but when I think of my son hanging his head sadly because I’m gone, it gives that backward pair of heart underwear an atomic wedgie.
I cannot even comprehend how military service men and women do it, or anyone whose career takes them far away for long periods. I just got back from a business trip, so when I saw this video it really struck a major cord for me. So sweet and sad and wonderful. Enjoy!
Happy 5th birthday to the worlds cutest little girl EVER. Since my brother in law is deployed we planned this out & her reaction was priceless ” class=”wp-smiley” style=”height: 1em; max-height: 1em;” />” class=”wp-smiley” style=”height: 1em; max-height: 1em;” /> pic.twitter.com/HupSXgCxst
