What do you do when happy makes you sad?
by Sammi T.
I'm married to a Wonderful man. Between him and our son I feel joyous and fulfilled every day.
The problem I'm having lately though, is that the Wonderful man of mine is a Soldier in the United States Army. And currently deployed to Afghanistan until sometime in the early fall.
You'd think that thinking of him and how great he is would just make me happier, but this past week I'm finding my happy leads immediately to sad. I think "He's so great, I am so blessed that this amazing man is in love with me" cue huge smile... But fast on it's heels is the "he can't be here" part and the smile melts into tears.
I don't want to NOT think about my husband as he is a source of great joy for me, but it hurts to think about how wonderful he is because he can't be here.
I really, really need advice. A lot of my progress is backsliding rapidly because I have been unsuccessful in getting past this.
