It is SO nice to have Luke home. It isn't until he gets back that I realize how truly lonely I am without him. Like I said, good thing I'm getting a new human before he leaves again, or I would DEFINITELY need a puppy.
His coming back is not without its challenges. You try spending a month apart from your husband or someone you love, thinking about them a lot. This inevitably results in soul searching. And that inevitably results in some very hard, but necessary conversations.
Yet I love him more than ever. Could it be that's what true love really is ... that you don't love someone in spite of their faults, you love them because of their faults? Don't know.
