  • No, heck no, and I am sorry that he has to go. I have cousins that are active military and it really is hard, especially now, around the holidays. I felt that way a few times in my life, I think most people do at some point, it is a part of the whole cycle of life, feeling sad, blue, gosh even depressed comes with the festivities of the season too. It was hard for me last Christmas, after losing my god daughter so suddenly in April to want to feel the spirit, but my niece came and stayed with us from Thanksgiving through the first week of February, so that helped the pain in my heart. She also had not seen snow or spent a Christmas with us since she was a little girl (she is 13) so it was very joyous, even though we did cry here and there. I do hope you have a goo day and that your holidays will be nice. Patricia

  • I don't think so. I was deployed about this time when I was in the Marine Corps so I know how it feels.

  • Heck no! Deployments suck!! I say still enjoy the time decorating with him and try to make it a happy day =)

  • Nope, absolutely not. When my husband was deployed it took me several weeks to put up Christmas decorations because I just wasn't in the mood but I wanted too because of our son.

  • nope, we're kinda the same way, except its cuz the kids have kinda outgrown it, so its like "who cares" now. The fun of it (for me) was watching the little kids get all excited about it.

  • No, your not wrong. Your husband not being there is a good reason to put a damper on the holidays.

  • You're never wrong to feel what you feel. I would've waited on the tree though and spent the day in his arms instead! It's never bad to feel longing and missing for someone you love-even when they haven't left yet!

  • no, but try to enjoy what time you have with him.
