Aaron is away more often than not these days. He has always traveled throughout our 13 years of marriage, and I consider myself independent, but for some reason the whole of us feels his absence more than ever before. It's difficult to be a (sometimes) single mom. Of course the work load is heavy, but that's not the hardest part. Ask anyone who is alone a lot and they will most likely tell you that the hardest part is simply being alone. And it's not so much that you want company. You only want him. Because even when you're mad, you are all about each other. That's the way God designed it from the beginning. Bone of bone...flesh of flesh. We are part of the other. Like it, love it, or leave it...you cannot comfortably be away from him. The two are one. And these two here, Aaron & Jennipher, have made Three. So, Jennipher and the Three are hanging in there until he comes home. And then we will hold him tight before he flies away...again.
