So the time has come for me to start my photo a day project. I had wanted to start with pictures that my good friend Amber took of us before he left, but I felt like I needed to start with the pictures I took of him at the airport yesterday. I'm sure I don't have to describe how we all felt yesterday knowing it was the last day we had with him. We got up in the morning and went to church and knew the moment we got there that it was the right thing to do. It was an amazing service and it ended with us recieving a huge blessing and finding peace with all of this. From there we went to breakfast and just enjoyed eachother's company. When we got home Lamont had to take care of a few things and before I knew it it was time to take him to the airport. When we arrived at the airport, Aly gave her daddy a present to take with him. It was her lion webkins that was dear to her heart, but she knew her daddy would love it. Then it was time for the goodbyes, i watched as Aly held onto Lamont and didn't want to let him go. It tore at my heart knowing she was feeling the same way I did, knowing that when she let go it would be the last hug for a very long time. You just stand there holding them, smelling them trying to permanently embed that memory in your mind so you'll have it for those times when you miss them soo much. I know he was feeling the same way, and I know this is just as hard on him as it is on us. We joked on the way to the airport that one day when we are laying in our bed, in our dream home that we will look back at all of this and see how much our marriage has survived through all of this. We will know it was all worth it in the end, and I will hold onto to that thought during those times when I need him the most..
