Take a look at this picture I took of my husband this morning while he was standing on a hotel room balcony overlooking a gorgeous foggy forest and soft trickling fountain. In a few hours he will stand with the other members of his unit as they pledge commitment to their mission. Then he’ll say goodbye for a year to his sisters and his nephews, and aunts and uncles, and his brothers.
It’s a hard bite to swallow.
But when I looked at him this morning all I saw was peace.
