hi to everyone.

i am very new to this sort of thing, but wanted to let you know that i find a bit of comfort reading the postings here. my husband is out there for the summer and is the most fearless person i have ever met in my life (and handsome, too!). he just came off of working on the fire where the two recent deaths occurred and was called out again last night. i have confidence in him and his ability to survive. i truly believe that there would be a huge void for him if he did not fight fire. i remain calm at home because i know that i am unable to control anything that happens out there and i want to be strong if things take a turn for the worst. my family, unfortunately, doesn’t really understand why someone would want to do what he does, so i rarely speak to them about my fears, if i have any. i feel comfort in knowing that i may have all of your shoulders to lean on if i need to share anything. by the way, my man will be coming home from 3000 miles away in about a week and a half and i am sooooo excited i’ll probably knock him down when i jump on him!!
