Daughter missing Dad

I remember when a few days away from my husband almost were impossible to get through. After basic training, raider focus, NTC and a year-long deployment, a few days is usually no problem. Of course, I miss him when he's not around, but I no longer stop functioning or sink into a deep depression.
