When your an adult, it’s easier to understand certain things.
Like why a member of our family is missing.
In the case of a military family, adults, and older children understand why that family member is gone for a while.
They know they’re away doing their job and making a country and happier, safer, and better place.
It’s a massive sacrifice.
But it’s one all military members and their families must be willing to make.
They do it with an astounding amount of grace and bravery.
Military families face long separations and missed holidays, birthdays, and special events.
But they also miss out on day to day routines and quality family time that many of us take for granted.
Though they’re able to text and email, every so often, it’s not the same as holding a loved one in your arms.
