It's so hard to focus when your heart is thousands of miles away.
My son recently left to fight in a “desert” war. I have been feeling a bit disconnected and unable to focus on normal daily tasks. I do things just to take my mind off of him being gone and when reminded I catch myself and try to take a deep breath. I suppose I am one of the lucky mom’s because this is his first tour and he is only gone for six months. Still, it is little comfort knowing what he is enduring, and not being able to be there to comfort and protect him. God please keep our children safe as they fight for our country and please bring them home soon.
