I finally had that separation break down... the top on my emotional wine bottle completely shot right off. But that's ok. My Love was there (on the phone) with me to help me trudge through. Now that I've let those emotions leak out, I'm ok again. Seeing him again in 2 more weekends and then again after that two weeks later makes things easier to stomach now. One more month of this and then we're done. At least for a long while.
I skimmed down through older posts and noticed that I'd said, "...I'm so grateful, no matter how hard these times apart are..." I definitely am grateful. I just forgot to remember that last night.
