post no. 77 -- Times Like These

It's nights like these that I dread the fact that Kris has 3+ more years with the Navy. The story of my sleeve and many songs tend to sum up the loneliness that a sailor's life at sea brings to them and their families. Why anyone chooses this life is news to me. The only way to get through it is just to keep going.

So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
for the road is long ahead.
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
but your road is yours to tread.
