I am a soldier and a mom. My husband has never been in the service so he doesn't understand anything I ever talk about. That's okay. I like to keep my personal life and work life apart. I am in the National Guard but I have been on active since March. I have been gone from my family for only two weeks and it is so hard. My daughter is a year old and doesn't understand why i am gone. She cries and doesn't sleep well. It makes me so sad. I like serving my country but sometimes I feel like I am ready to just get out. I resigned my contract almost a year ago. It was a silly mistake. I really shouldn't have done it. I go to the field for five days and won't be able to talk or FaceTime my baby girl. I know I shouldn't be complaining but I miss mher so much.
