My youngest daughter graduated on Monday. My husband is in Afghanistan. He missed it. We lost our home last November and he could only find work overseas as a contractor. Sometimes the loneliness is overwhelming. But I see other people who are going through so much worse than I. I feel selfish for my pity party. I am going to vibes to reconnect with the joy of being alive.

aw, that's sad that he had to miss her big day. it must be hard for you to feel both joy and sadness at something that is supposed to be a happy occasion. :heart:
and just because others seem to have it worse, knowing that doesn't mean your pain is any easier to bear. any idea when he will be able to come home?

Thanks for the note cj. We are hoping he comes home in December, but job market here doesn't look so great. He loves what he does, and there are not alot of jobs here. He is a technical trainer, helping Afghanis learn how to run the monstrous power plants.

So sorry to hear that!! My nephew returned from Afghanistan recently and is waiting on his next orders, which will probably be to return.

Sending you good vibes for your husband's return in December. Keep hope alive blackthunb!! :smile:
