Being on the downside of a year-long deployment is really frustrating. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but you're not quite there. Time seems to fly by...until you look at the calendar and realize that there are still double-digit weeks to go. It's kind of like those dreams, or nightmares, where you're running as fast as you can, but you don't seem to be moving.

Well, that's the way I feel right now, and it seems that alot of you out there are feeling the same way. So close...yet so far. We all know that the time will pass...we all know that eventually they will be home...we all know that we need to keep on keeping on...but it doesn't make it any easier.

I am right there with ya. I am soo frustrated. I have never wanted time to move as fast as I want it to right now. These past months seem to be the hardest. I thought the end would be easier. I have never been more wrong.

I agree with you whole-heartedly. It's so rough being close to the end, yet still knowing there's some time left before it's actually the end. I guess the only thing that I can say is, at least we're in this together!

Hang in there. With each tick of the clock your soldier gets closer to home. Prayers going out your way for a safe trip home.

Time will be slow for a bit, then go faster, then slow again. It will be worth it in the end! Have a great weekend!
