Last day before D-Day! (Deployment Day)

Well, today was an OK day.  It is always hard to spend the day together knowing that by tomorrow I will not be able to reach out and touch him.  I will not be able to have one of his great hugs whenever I want.  And I will not be able to chat with him, neither in person or on text messaging whenever I want.  Communication becomes a little more difficult, but not impossible.  
Our kids have all handled this one better than I could have imagined.  Even our youngest...who I expected to have a tough evening, but to my amazement has been able to talk about deployment without tears. 
I am awaiting the kids goodbyes, which will happen at their bedtimes, and I am sure it will be a tough one.  Then I plan to hug and hold on to him until we have to take him to the hangar for departure.  
I love him dearly.  “God please keep him safe”!!!
