    People Ask Us: "How do you do it?"

    Advertisements
    They are just your average person, looking at you with wide eyes, with that expression of "How do you do it?"
    "You haven't herd from him in how long? What about letters?"
    They seem to think that this life that we live is impossible.

    We make it through not because we cry at night.
    Or that we walk around in his PT shirts with his cologne sprayed on them.
    That his dog togs hang around our necks, even if it doesn't match our outfit. That everyday we get butterflies just thinking about a letter in the mailbox or a phone call on our cell phones. That we set that extra place for him at the table out of habit. Or that when he does call, our lives all of a sudden become complete and you feel one again with him, even it's not exactly how you want it to be, it's something. All these things help us to make it through the times when he is gone.

    But what really makes us who we are, is making the choice to stand by his side every single day, even when we feel like we can't make it through the day. Tomorrow will always come. The sun has been faithful for thousands of years to rise and fall at the same time, all the time. Knowing that the sun shines on his face just as it sines on ours, and is faithful to bring us one day closer to him. That is how we get through not seeing him for several months or over a year.

    Very nice. Personally when people ask this question I always tell them it's "survival of the fittest" and wait while they scratch their butts and figure out what I meant. Guess you have to be a fan of Darwin to really get it.
