tears today to bring smiles tomorrow

It was an early morning, not uncommon for us ... but it felt a little different this time, knowing that I wouldn't be seeing my hubby for another 10 days after today.  This trip has been planned since roughly around January of last year, but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would come this soon.

I may have mentioned this before, but my hubby is a surgical tech and was given an amazing opportunity to be part of an even more amazing organization, Faces of Tomorrow (FOT).  They travel to 3rd world countries every year to give children with various facial deformities a second chance at happiness and a new beginning. 

This is Larry's second trip and this year they will be flying to the Philippines.  It's a 14 hour trip and I'm very nervous for him ... I know it hasn't even been a full day yet and I'm already going crazy missing him.  Just thinking about it brings me to tears ... luckily I wasn't a complete emotional wreck when I dropped him off today ... I tried to hold it in as much as possible and have stayed composed until now.  At night everything always sets in .... unfortunately that includes emotions too ... so I'm going to try to do my best holding down the fort while he's gone and praying for his safe return.


  1. What a wonderful, selfless thing he is doing! You must be so proud.

  2. that is so amazing! what a great hubby you have. i hope the time while he is away flies by for you!
