We can't be together today because Douglas is away for about a month on the ship, but we spent the last two weekends celebrating in different ways. It's hard not being together today, but I am so proud of what he is doing. So much of what he have and what we have experienced has been because of Douglas's job in the Navy. Being away from each other so much is the most painful thing we've ever done and, of course, we would love to not be separated at all. But it's not forever. That's what we keep saying. And it will be worth it.
