Our Thanksgiving this year was spent together, the 4 of us around my table. Thrilled to be together, but thinking of those, that are enduring a deployment over the Holiday Season.
DH's mind kept traveling away from the table. We spent a lot of time talking about those that are serving, and those they left behind on this holiday. My Husband was very melancholy, even though he was here with us. He said the Holidays are hard for our men and women serving, he also told me that when in theater, there are soldiers that try and ignore the holiday, those that go over the top, and the rest just try and get through it. (Almost sounds like how we spouses survive them.)
How can we make the Holiday a special one for those that are away from family and friends?
